Link Friday: The Handy Travel Apps Edition

Posted on Thursday, April 24, 2014 by Kate

Travel is sort of our thing at Pilch & Barnet. Check out these handy apps to make your next trip that much easier.

  • Apple Maps is ok. Google Maps is better. Public transportation directions, more accurate routes and turn-by-turn GPS navigation makes this app a must-have.
  • Traveling abroad? You’re going to need to convert money, distance, degrees – The Converted app takes care of it all in one place.
  • Organize your travel in one place with TripIt. It will import information from your e-mail inbox and organize your flights, hotel and car rentals, dinner reservations and more into one big itinerary. Use the free version, do a 30 day free trial or pay for a year, if you’re really a jet setter.
  • Ready to hit the open road? Download Roadtrippers first. It’ll map out your route based on interesting sites to see along the way.
