GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) You put a lot of time, attention, and energy in planning the perfect trip. Here are 5 apps that will take a few headaches out of travel:
This app puts a science behind packing for a trip. Tell it where you’re going, how long for and who with and it’ll spit out a suggested list of what you might need, split up into essentials (passport, currency), clothes, gadgets and more, with separate lists for additional family members.
This nifty little app measures the UV index of your current location and reminds you when to reapply. Get rid of that lobster on vacation look once and for all.
Leave 10% on the table after a meal in Tokyo and your generosity will cause offense, do the same in New York and you’ll be considered rude. Tipulator is easy to use and keep the guess work out of travel.
This potentially life saving app contains a database of emergency service numbers for just about every country you’d ever care to visit, plus plenty for those that you wouldn’t. There’s also embassy details should passports go missing and the option to pin certain services to your home screen as widgets, for one-touch access to police, ambulances and fire engines.
HopStop can help guide you through any metropolis you choose to visit. It contains public transport information covering 68 (and counting) of the world’s biggest, busiest cities. So whether you want to catch a bus in New York City or pick your way through Munich, you’ll be covered.
