This is one of those travel apps for iPhone and iPad that is a niche product, because it’s for surfers. Ahh, surfers, lovers of the extreme, facers of danger, they have no fear. But they might be happy to find out about this app, though! Although it won’t help with shark attacks that much, it will help plan the best ever surfing trip that one could imagine. With BeachPro, you can view detailed location and beach reports, as well as surf reports, wave heights for the next week, tide times and weather information, straight from the app. Moreover, you can also get GPS instruction on location and access over 5000 different beaches and their information from across the globe.

This one is probably one of the most interesting and useful travel apps for iPhone and iPad that we’ve come across, and it’s completely free. What Key Ring does is collect all the loyalty card information that you have, and wish to take with you on your trip, and keeps it neat and organized within its interface. Thus, it mostly eliminates the need for a wallet when going sunbathing or surfing. Once again, surfers might appreciate this app, seeing as all that they need to carry with them to the beach would be their iPhone. With the app, you can hold all your loyalty and discount card information as well as benefit from more.

Funny name, makes you think that it’s not what it seems like. But finding toilets is what this app actually does. This might be one of the weirdest travel apps that we’ve come across, but its purpose is truly useful. With the Toilet Finder app, which is free in the iTunes store, you can actually find free toilet facilities on beaches all around the world. You can actually rate such facilities based on your experience, and sort them according to who they cater to. For example, there are categories to find handicapped-accessible free toilet facilities on the beach that you’re on. Although I almost never use public restrooms, Toilet Finder might give me confidence, since most listed places have user feedback and ratings available, so that you can go to a 5 star toilet, which is free, if you like. Although it doesn’t sound as useful as you would think, Toilet Finder could possible be one of the most practical travel apps for iOS out there.
We came across Triposo thanks to Photo Tribune, and have to believe that it’s possible the best guide there is for iPhone and iPad.

The app is free in the iTunes app store. Continue reading for more excellent, must-have travel apps for iPhone and iPad on the next page.
Google appeared as a car manufacturer
Google has recently used CES as a platform to present its philosophy of “Better Together,” the notion that all devices should get along with one another. Typically, this entails making announcements regarding new Cast compatibility and features like Fast Pair. The business revealed that it is collaborating with Spotify to incorporate the Connect streaming capability into the Android UI at CES 2023. Additionally, it showed a sneak peek at an audio handoff tool that would recommend various devices to shift your music to based on your preferences and location.
However, CES is a significant vehicle event, and Google also sells items for cars. Additionally, it said today that the Polestar 3 would receive its higher-resolution maps, and it debuted the most recent Android Auto user interface for the first time since it was revealed at I/O 2022.
Two vehicles, a Volvo EX90 with Google preinstalled and a BMW i7 with the new Android Auto experience, were at the Google stand in the trailer lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. We had never seen the Volvo before, and we’ll be posting a separate hands-on on that experience shortly. The new Android Auto is the main topic of this article and video.
The redesigned interface will support larger screen sizes and have a split screen layout, as we discovered at I/O. Google has eliminated the status bar and inserted a row of shortcut keys below it, along with some indication icons in a small area to the top left. When we were in the car, the Spotify app was located on the left panel, and we could access a list of suggested playlists by swiping in from the right side.
Alerts that you won’t have time to respond to while driving are likewise stored in this left pane. For instance, you can swipe right on a notification to move it to the dock, where it will wait until you’re ready to deal with it.
Check out the video up top for more of our experience with the updated Android Auto in the BMW i7! And be sure to pay attention this week as there will be a ton of news at CES 2023.
