7 Amazing iPhone Apps for Avid Travelers

Do you have the wanderlust? If so, then you will be pleased to find that your best travel companion is one that fits right in your pocket – and doesn’t require tickets. Your iPhone can be an invaluable tool when it comes to navigating the globe, if you arm it with the right tools. Here are seven amazing iPhone apps for avid travelers:

  1. Gasbag.
    If you are concerned with gas prices (and who isn’t?!), then this is the perfect app for you. Gasbag actually uses your iPhone’s GPS to track your position and give you locations of the nearest gas stations, as well as the gas prices at each.

  2. HiConverter.
    This app enables you to convert just about anything into its overseas equivalent. Whether you need to convert temperature, currency, or clothing sizes, this is the tool to use.

  3. Say Where
    . Simply speak your location into your phone (or, it does have a manual input option, if you prefer), and this app will return to you a wide array of information pertaining to your locality, including a map, a traffic report, a Yellow Pages listing, and even Yelp reviews. What’s more is that you don’t have to download Yelp’s app if you use Say Where.

  4. Packing Pro.
    Before you leave for a vacation, you have a laundry list of things to do and items to pack, right? That can get very confusing, and it is also very easy to forget things that you might really miss when you’re away from home. Use Packing Pro to create a pre-travel checklist and keep it in order, or you may opt to use one of the app’s several packing templates, if you are really pressed for time.

  5. Sit or Squat.
    How many times have you been wandering in a foreign place and needed to use the restroom, only to find that you had no idea where to go? This app will tell you exactly where the nearest restrooms are, and even features pictures and reviews, if you’re especially picky about where you potty.

  6. Inn Touch.
    Need a place to stay? This app will provide you with your accommodation options, including pictures, prices, contact information, and reviews.

  7. Lingolook Flashcards
    . This app is a great go-to when you need a quick reference for common phrases in a foreign language. The simple flashcard format is easy to use, and Lingolook even pronounces the phrases for you, to help you avoid blunders.

As you can see, there seems to be no end to what your iPhone can do for you when it comes to travel. Download these apps the next time you leave home and see just how much easier your journey can be.
