As technology develops, activities that used to be a bane are now much more convenient and easily accessible. One of those activities that incurred so much more footwork and paperwork just a few decades ago is travelling. Now, almost everything can be done wirelessly – from booking your ticket, (a great app for that is SkyScanner) to paying for your purchases abroad.
It’s no surprise that tablets are a huge help when it comes to easing the process of travelling. If you carry with you the proper apps for your trip (and more importantly, you know how to use them) there isn’t much left to trouble yourself about. You’ll also need to make sure your tablet is secure so there are no problems with viruses; for that you can download an app called AVG AntiVirus FREE for Android Security 2017. Question is, which apps would you best want to install on your android tablet that’ll be beneficial to your trip? Here are a few of them.
Navigate Easily Around Town
Waze is an app that lets you navigate your way through uncharted territory, anywhere around the world. All you have to do is download it, sign up, and then tell it where you want to go from where you are. The app will literally guide you whether you’re walking or taking a car, telling you exactly where and which way to turn, both verbally and through written instructions on the screen. It also tells you areas to avoid because of an accident, traffic, or construction work, and informs you if there are police around a certain area. It’s extremely helpful, especially if you plan to be moving around by yourself a lot in the country you plan to visit.
Call, Free of Charge
Messenger is a free app that lets you communicate with others without spending extra through your cellphone carrier – just make sure your cellular data is off. When you travel to another country, they may charge you a whole lot more than usual because of the roaming factor. You can avoid these charges by using the messenger app with WIFI to connect with people. Plus, because (almost) everyone has Facebook, and Facebook contacts are connected to messenger, it’s extra convenient to look for anyone you may want to talk to. The app lets you chat, call, video chat, and send small-scale files.
Find A Place to Stay
Airbnb helps you scour the area you’re in for a place that feels more like home than a hotel – and sometimes, for a better price too. It gives you other options to stay in aside from hotels that may be nearer the area you want to be in. Once you download the app, simply input the city you want to stay in, and look at the available rooms that suit your needs. Set a date, book a room with a credit card, and you’re done!
A Live Weather Forecast, Wherever You Are
Travelling often entails activities that need the weather to cooperate. An app called Accuweather does the job of updating you, telling you exactly what the weather is and will – be in extreme detail and accuracy, right down to the specifics of the very address you’ll be in.
