Useful iPhone Apps for Travel

June 24th, 2015

I am sometimes asked about useful apps for Travellers – I must declare my bias in that I am in the iPhone camp so don’t know much about android apps.

There are lists online like this one of 50 but I use almost none of these.

Here is my list of essentials

Timescroller – to know what time is best to ring home

Skype and Viber : to ring home. I especially like viber for sending photos back to my family group.)

Tripadvisor app : to checkout restaurants and accommodation

Tripit is an easy way to store ones itinerary, flights etc on ones phone

A currency app is useful : I use ecurrency

ProHDR ( $2.59) as it takes great photos at variable light e.g. if there is too much backlight

Worldfactbook – to get some statistics about countries while on the road

and of course the essentials Twitter, Facebook, google maps, and the apps I developed

Vaccine Record for Travellers – ( free ) store your vaccine records

Travel Health Guide for iPhone   and   Travel Health Guide for Android  : Help you work out what to do if you get sick

I would love to hear suggestions from others as to the apps they love for travel.

    My wife ( Gail) and I are patients and we have purchased your great book. Just wondering, as an android camp person ( and there are lots of us out there) whether you would advise about suitable apps similiar to your favoured apple app?
