Whether we are out and about working on our fitness, or slouched over on the couch stalking an ex, our smartphones have become indispensable companions. If you are taking a trip, then your trusty little pocket computer can really come in handy, too, as it will be able to provide you with a steady supply of helpful info in unfamiliar surroundings.

Simplify Your LIfe with HotelTonight

There are many applications that can book a hotel room for you, but these are not created equal, by any means. HotelTonight stands out from the crowd for two reasons:

  1. The quality of its hotel reviews
  2. The bargains it makes available

You will be able to sift through the options provided based on various criteria, and, once the application assigns you to the hotel you have selected, it can handle the payment and booking on its own too.

Keep Organised with Citymapper

Of course you can get hold of info about public transport from general map applications like Apple or Google Maps, but, sometimes, there is a great edge in a dedicated tool. In the same way that is is now easy as pie to get hold of the best NBA bets thanks to dedicated sites that find the information you are looking for, this application makes taking journeys by means of trains and busses a breeze. It will assist you in plotting out your journey and find transport even when you’re halfway to where you are going. 

Get Going with Google Trips

Google’s latest foray into the world of travel applications functions as a digital replacement for the reams of printed-out docs you normally need to find a way to take with you. It will keep your reservations, saved places, itinerary ideas and other info all in one place. It also makes Google Map features available to you, and you will be able to surf for restaurant and bar reviews near you with ease.

This application can even guess future destinations based on the bookings mentioned in your Gmail account and, if you are in an area which does not provide full mobile service, you can save all the information you have collected onto your smartphone so that you can access it even when you are not connected to the internet.

Get Weather Warnings with Dark Sky

When you leave your hotel room in an unknown city, it is very helpful to know what to expect from the weather for the next hour two, or even the whole day. There are not many applications that do immediate weather forecasts as well as Dark Sky does: special algorithms are applied, which work out what the weather will be doing over the course of the next few hours.

Once you open the app you will be able to view detailed readings regarding rain, temperature, and humidity. In a lot of locations you will even be able to access radar maps that will show you exactly what the weather fronts in your area are doing. It also comes replete with built-in widgets that will allow you to check forecasts with a single glance.
