Apps Our Brooklyn Travel Agency Likes
With the influx of apps available for download to smartphones, it was inevitable that some of these apps would be intended to aid travelers. These apps tend to fall under three categories:
- Trip Planning: Packing Pro is an app for the iPhone which helps individuals decide what to pack for a trip. Users input vacation destinations, personal preferences, and other info and the app creates an individualized packing list. WeatherPro provides up to date and detailed meteorological info for any vacation destination, allowing travelers to prepare in advance. Another iPhone app, JetLag Genie promotes the theory that the best cure for jet lag is preparation by setting a series of alarm clocks in the weeks before the trip.
- Sightseeing: Some apps are designed for on the moment help in a foreign destination. The Currency Converter from Oanda allows user instant access to the latest in exchange rates so they don’t get stiffed by opportunistic taxi drivers and shopkeepers. Waze offers user driven information about traffic conditions on roads around the world. The free app Pin Drop provides a great way for planning spur of the moment itineraries.
The last category deserves a post of its own, so be sure to read our next informative blog post! Contact our Brooklyn travel agency for the latest deals on a flight to Israel and beyond.
