We’re always on the lookout for ways to make travelling easier. With better overseas roaming rates and free wifi available at more hotels, you no longer have to leave your iPhone at home when you travel internationally.
We’ve compiled our top 5 iOS travel apps to make your next trip that little bit easier.
We can’t go past a classic like Google Maps. With up-to-date maps, traffic information and real-time ETAs, you’ll easily find where you want to go and how to get there. Google Maps even provides offline maps to search and navigate without an internet connection. The app also provides street view and indoor imagery for restaurants, shops, museums and more - as well as reviews, ratings and pictures of food from restaurants. Definitely a must-have app, even for every day life!
Travelling to a non-english speaking country? That’s ok, with the free language app Duolingo you can learn the basics of:
Tutorials are short and sweet, with gamification in every lesson. Learn a language through reading, listening, and speaking.
Haven’t quite mastered the language yet? Thanks to Google Translate you can translate between 103 languages by typing. Not connected to the internet? Google Translator provides 52 languages offline for when you’re away from the hotel or when you’d rather spend money on great food over roaming data.
Newer features include using your camera for instant text translation - which means you select your languages and point your phone camera at the sign or word you want to translate.
Whether the weather be fine, or whether the weather be not. Whatever the weather you’ll know thanks to the iOS Weather App. Make sure you check out what the forecast is for the day before you head anywhere - in some parts of the world it can be sunny one moment and bucketing-down rain the next!
Apple’s Wallet app is a great place to store your boarding passes, tickets or store useful information like hotel bookings and more. Key passes with time or location information will automatically appear at the right time. You can store your credit card information in Wallet as well, as part of Apple Pay.
