There is no doubt that I love techie gadgets and cool apps. As a frequent traveler, I become discouraged when there is no internet signal when needing to have access to certain travel apps.

The good news is there are quite a few great apps that can be downloaded at home before heading out to keep your trip running smoothly.

Check these out:

Google Translate  

Wow, this app will translate text in 103 languages. It will also translate text in images by using your phone camera. Although the app has been around for a while, the improvements and updates keep it running top notch. Google Translate is the next best thing to having a personal interpreter by your side.  https://translate.google.com/


LiveTrekker

If you keep a journal of your travels, then Livetrekker may become your new best friend! The app lets you pin photos, videos, audio or text to maps as you travel.   Consolidate all your digital media into one app to tell your travel stories. You can fine-tune as you like via the web when free data service is offered. https://www.livetrekker.com/LiveTrekker

City Maps 2 Go

Download maps for a specific country or city to use offline. The app then allows you to search for streets or points of interest to bookmark. It is a great app to have on your phone or tablet when venturing out on your own in unfamiliar places without an internet connection. http://www.ulmon.com/#get-the-app


Pocket

Do you fin yourself emailing links to read or view a video at a later date? You then must hunt the email and sometimes find it can’t be located. The solution is an app called Pocket. You can save videos, articles, and webpages in one handy place to view offline at your convenience. https://getpocket.com/

Triposo

I am a travel guidebook junkie. I can most likely find a travel book on my shelf about any destination. The problem remains that packing heavy travel books in my luggage is not practical. Triposo to the rescue! This app allows you to pick your favorite activities, hotels, top attractions and restaurants. Personalize a trip to your specifications.  https://www.triposo.com/

These are my latest finds in great travel apps that I hope you will find useful. All are available in IOS or Android. Just remember to first download the app and pertinent information from an internet connection so you can use the app offline while traveling to save on data charges.
