Find out how to get there, read reviews, and even let an app suggest new places to see and new things to do. Now you can make traveling even easier with these best iPod Touch apps for travel.
Yelp – Yelp is an app that will show you around town! This app will not only tell you where businesses are that you’re looking for, but it will also give you all the contact information you need and give you reviews from other users. And, it will even pull up a map for you so you don’t have to worry about getting lost along your way. And one of the best things about this app – it’s absolutely free!
Lonely Planet – This app has everything that Yelp has to offer with reviews, maps, and suggestions. But it also has an audiophrase book that will translate different words and common phrases. Plus, it will also spell them out phonetically for you so you don’t have to worry about trying to twist your tongue around foreign words. This app too, is also free!
Urbanspoon – This app will also make traveling easier, although it focuses solely on dining. This app is also very fun to use! Shake your iPod Touch and the slot machine-like interface will pull up a great restaurant for you to try. Don’t like the one it gave you? Just shake your Touch again and it will come up with some new options for you. And like the others, Urbanspoon is also free!
