Best Apps on the Road

image

Business or pleasure? Whatever takes you on the road, your iPhone can show you the way. Pack the right apps, and you’ll hurtle through airports and far-flung lands, navigating unfamiliar cities and foreign languages like a native. This chapter sends you on a junket of the best travel apps, revealing novel uses for your phone’s GPS and on-the-go Internet access to make your trips fly and keep your timetable on the rails.

Your iPhone handily juggles all the planes, trains, and automobiles in your itinerary, keeping you organized and on schedule by tracking flights, dodging traffic jams, finding the best subway route, even hailing a taxi. When you arrive at your destination, choose from the best travel guides to find the must-see sights or discover obscure treasures not covered in any traditional travelogue. If you don’t parlez-vous the local lingo, your iPhone or iPod Touch has you covered with translations and phrase books for other languages. Armchair travelers can meanwhile transport themselves anywhere instantly, exploring the world with a souped-up global map that lets you swoop anywhere.
