6 Essential Apps for Any Traveller

Traveling to another country can be difficult – language barriers, getting lost, etc. can turn a fun vacation into an unimaginable nightmare. Luckily, modern technology makes traveling easier than ever before. Here are the 6 essential apps for any traveler.

Travel Apps1. Overcoming the Language Barrier

When traveling to a different country, one may find that the locals don’t speak your language, and signs aren’t always in English. In comes the new Google Translate app, with its incredible live translation of signs and speech. The application is very fast and simple to use, and can make your life a whole lot easier in a foreign country.

Another problem travelers might encounter is not knowing their surroundings. It’s easy to get lost in a place you don’t know, and if you could have sworn that your hotel “was here somewhere”, it’s time to let your phone do the work for you. Google Maps is Google’s navigation app. It can help you by providing walking directions, driving directions, and even public transportation directions.

Tipping too little can be embarrassing, and tipping too much is also an unpleasant experience. Once more, your smartphone can help you here. What you need is a tip translator, meaning it can tell you what the local tipping customs is and calculate the amount you need to leave based on your check and percentage.
