 ILoveWifi3.Wi-Fi Finder

When we travel, something that really frustrates us is not having internet connection to keep in touch with friends, share photos on facebook/instagram, or check our email. Wifi-finder is an iOS app that uses the iPhone, iPod and iPad and for Android phones and tablets with OS. Its presence in around 140 countries and its main function, as his name indicate, is to aid us to find the nearest public internet connection, so we can use our Wi-Fi to transmit everything that excites us without running the risk of using the network of our operator.


Not everyone can afford to stay at The Savoy every night, so thank heavens for this – a geo-tagged directory of 25,000 listings for budget hotels, right at your travel-weary fingertips. The app also provides access to over 3.5million user reviews, minimalising the likelihood of you signing up to a night in a flea-infested hell-pit.
Available on iPhone (free) and Android (free)


The closest thing most of us will ever have to a personal assistant, and a lot cheaper. All you have to do is forward your various confirmation emails for flights/hotels/hire cars/restaurant bookings etc. and the app instantly generates an itemised itinerary covering your entire trip. Better still, upgrade to the premium version and the app will keep you in the loop in real time, generating alerts to let you know when flights are delayed or gates change.
Available on iPhone (free) and Android (free)

6.XE Currency

Don’t bother paying up for one of the many currency conversion apps out there in the digital hinterland – this freebie is slick, easy to use, and – best of all, since it uses live currency rates – completely accurate. It’s been downloaded more than five million times to date, so don’t even think about hopping on a plane without it.
Available on iPhone (free), iPad (free), Android (free) and Windows Phone (free)


Tired walking looking for a taxi? It’s over! This neat piece of software uses your phone’s GPS to make the taxis come to you – simply tap the big ‘pick me up’ button and one of the little taxi icons on the map will start heading towards you. Hailo can save your life if you are lost in the middle of nowhere, and you need someone to pick you up but you dont know where you are or how to explain in another language.
The Hailo taxis accept Mastercard, Visa and American Express and you can add the data in the Account section of the app. With a registered card you’ll never have to wait for the end of your trip. You can leave the taxi upon arrival at your destination and they will send a receipt by email.
Available on iPhone (free) and Android (free)

8. FourSquare

You don´t know where to go for dinner in the city that you are visiting, and you don´t want to end up like a tourist paying exorbitant prices. You want to go to a bar for a drink or a nightclub and don´t know where to go. Where can you go shopping?With this app you will find the places where the locals go. This database is created in an altruistic way, so if you are in your city or outside, don’t hesitate to upload your review about the places where you have been eating.

The quintessential guide! But why carry books, if you can take them all on your mobile?

11. Triposo

One of the best guides. If you add still above which is free and works offline, then it is perfect! Depending on the country or city you are going to travel you have to download the extension that it is also free. The guide provides the history of the country / place / monuments, includes offline maps with GPS tracking, plus tells you the monuments, and tells you where to eat, where to go, tour companies, etc. There is the option to organize by the distance as you may be, alphabetically, or popularity. Other features include a currency converter. It is only available in English for the moment, but this is not a problem for you, is it?

travel-quote-blog-212. Google translate

You will know it for sure! The app version has 60 languages to translate. One disadvantage is that it needs to be connected to the Internet.

13.Google Goggles

Many times you are visiting a city and you want to know what building you’re looking at, or even in a museum there are paintings that are hung up behind the tourist group to which you can only see from afar. The purpose of the app is when you take a picture on your mobile and ig you are connected the internet, you will receive information quickly. Magic!

Because that is the purpose of this app, take it a picture with your mobile and if you are connected to the Internet quickly get the information. MAGIC!

In addition, using the application, users can find travelers wishing to share a taxi or exchanging info on ways to travel to and from the airport. Only available on iphone at the moment.

15. Say Hi Translate

It is very easy to use just writing or saying what you want in your language by pressing the blue button, and the app will tell loudly in the desired language. While the other person can do the same by pressing the green button. This will facilitate a conversation between two people who do not speak the same language. Currently there is only available on Iphone and only in 32 languages.
