Five Mobile Apps for Travellers

I’ve always expressed my love for travelling and I never stop myself from talking about it. So, lately I’ve been browsing a lot on my Blackberry and I got many a cool app related to travelling. And by ‘cool’ I mean ‘way too cool’. I’m sure you’ll agree once you finish reading it.
I’m going to talk about five apps that are my favourite. And these are:

  • Foursquare: This one app, I think, is the buzz of the town. Every 3 out of 5 people praise this app. Once you download it, you’ll get to know about it. It talks about the business and at the same time it also flaunts your ‘coolness’ quotient, courtesy all the fancy badges that you can get. Till now I’ve managed to unlock the ‘Explorer’ badge. And I try to live up to the standards of it… trust me! Enough about the coolness stuff, let’s talk the actual use. I think, the one thing that caught my attention is that with the help of this app, you can browse some amazing places nearby. Cool enough, eh?
  • Blackberry Travel: This is one hell of an app. Blackberry Travel is a must-have if you are on a rush. Any email alert from your travel agent or any change in the flight- it imports the details and creates a trip record for you. The good thing is, it suggests alternate flights as well. It’s very handy and time-saving!
  • Mobile GMaps: A must-have if you’re out exploring a new city on your own without the help of a guide for that matter. And the best thing is it’s a free application that displays Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, MSN Virtual Earth maps, et al. And I really swear by it.
  • Navita Translator: You go to a foreign land and you are stuck ‘coz you don’t know the language. Nothing is worse than that! So, here is Navita Translator that shall come to your rescue. You can quickly translate any phrase be it French, Russian or Spanish. A very useful app… I’m sure you would agree.
  • Poynt: This one is my favourite and definitely a must-have. With this one, you can quickly find restaurants, movie theatres and other businesses around your current location… and can easily call or email them from the app.

I’m sure many of you would find it amazing. I personally know many a Blackberry user who find using an app on Blackberry tacky. But I think if you give it a shot, you’ll be good to go. Let me know if you find this blog useful.
