A guide to using smartphone apps while you travel


Sometimes, getting to the destination is all fine and dandy, but it’s what to do when you get there that leaves you at a loss. Whether you’re there for a layover and need a place to grab or bite, or want to have the full tourist experience, there are apps that can tell you where to go and what you should do while you’re there.

This section is broken up by dining, attractions and nightlife, although there are many apps in this section that can be used for multiple purposes.

Free WiFi Finder

One app you’ll definitely want to download is this Free WiFi App, which locates the nearest stores and shops that allow you to access their wifi for free. If you’re in a country other than the U.S., this can be essential to using any of the other useful apps on this site. The spots are shown on a map, making them easy to find. One of the best things about this app is that it has a feature which allows it to work offline, eliminating the terrible paradox of needing wifi in order to access wifi.
