This one’s an obvious choice and I would recommend it for foodies. Although Yelp is already one of the most popular travel apps for iPhone, iPad and even Android, I feel it’s necessary to mention it because it’s inherently useful for travelers all around the world. The premise behind Yelp is simple: provide all the information possible about various businesses, especially restaurants. The neat features of Yelp including a whole array of filters which you can use to find the perfect spot to spend the night in, go on a romantic date, go to a rave, a party, a wine-tasting or just check out the malls from around town. Yelp offers directions, user ratings and all the info about business that you would need, like opening and closing times, prices, parking, booking, reservations and much more. Yelp I think is the most essential among travel apps for iPhone and iPad.
Road trips are probably the most fun adventures that one can take part in and their charm lies in the collective nature that they have. But collective trips usually involve at least a bit of fighting when it comes to splitting the actual costs of the roadtrip: accomodation, gas, ferry fares, parties, supplies and whatnot. All of these things should be shared among participants in the roadtrip, ideally. That is why organizing a roadtrip can be a pain in the butt, but Trip Splitter aims to help out in that. It’s one of the more interesting travel apps for iOS that we have on this list, because it has various functions that involve group activities. It’s also a $2 app which you can download from iTunes. With the app, you can split bills between yourselves easily and rapidly and it can actually keep tabs on every expense and every participant. It’s clean, customizable and easy to use, so it’s a must-have travel app for roadtrips and collective holidays for the family.
Packing is pain and we all know that. Not once have I found myself packing two huge bags for a weekend trip, just because I forgot what I did and didn’t include in them. Everything seems like a necessity when going on a trip, especially a long one. Which is why travel apps like PackPoint can be essential. It’s a free app which you can download from the app store, and it has a surprisingly neat interface that’s easy to use and friendly. All you need to do is input your destination, input the reason for your visit and the date and time frame that you are spending there and the app will create a must-have items that you need to take on holiday list for you, all in a matter of seconds. Pretty neat, huh?
