Google Maps: This has to be at the top of the list if you are visiting a new city and need to find your way around. Great for driving, walking or if you are taking public transport – also great for discovering new points of interest.

Google Keep
: Great little app for making “What to Do/Pack/Buy” lists  plus you can share these lists with others so they can edit/update your lists at the same time.

Keep in touch with these handy communication apps:
What’s App Messenger, Viber, Skype and Facebook Messenger. If you don’t have any of these, I suggest getting it now!  All of these apps have common features and a few points of difference but basically they can send instant messages with photo/voice/text attachments using your WiFi or 3/4G data, saving you those ridiculous roaming charges. Some of these apps allow you make voice & video calls. What better way to keep in touch and share your photos while on holiday.

Google Translate
: Great universal translation app which can translate text and voice – extremely handy when visiting non-English speaking countries.

Flight Tracker:
complete detailed information on all the flights in real time, a must-have if you do not want to miss your flights and keep up with schedule changes as they happen.

: a handy little weather app, great so you can pack & dress according to the conditions, especially if your plans are weather dependent.

XE Currency:
foreign exchange currency app, so you can convert the cost of items into your local currency and compare prices back home.

eBook reader which allows you to have your favourite books/magazines handy to read anywhere anytime, whether you are waiting around at the airport, at a bus stop, or simply relaxing in a hammock by the beach.

Bubble Shooter: it’s a game! Great for those times when you have to wait for a while (at the airport, bus stop, etc).

A good tip –
update your existing navigation apps & maps. Up to date maps will be your best friend in finding your way around new cities.
