Check out the top four free travel apps you shouldn’t leave home without:
Free Travel Apps #4: Hyperlapse
The past few years has seen a huge surge in holiday Instagram-ers. In the social media world, if you haven’t posted about your holiday – you may as well have not been. If you are struggling to capture your perfect holiday moment in just one picture, we have the perfect app for you. Hyperlapse is a free iphone app that will crunch your videos in to a timelapse that is easily sharable via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Free Travel Apps #3: AroundMe
If you’re on holiday in Europe and visiting somewhere you’ve never been to before, AroundMe is an app that will give you some guidance while exploring. Acting as a pocket tour guide on your holiday, AroundMe allows you to find restaurants, coffee shops, theatres and other points of interests nearby at the push of a button.
Free Travel Apps #2: Google Translate
Travelling to a different country can sometimes prove difficult, especially when there are language barriers. The free Google Translate app translates up to 90 languages through typing and can also translate text instantly in 26 languages through your camera. The perfect app to help struggling foodies in a foreign restaurant!
Free Travel Apps #1: Sunscreen
We all love to soak up the sun and enjoy the heat while we are on holiday, but it’s easy to lose track of when it’s time to top up on the SPF. The free app Sunscreen will detect the UVI ratings of your current location and will set a timer to remind you when it is time to re-apply. All you need to do is input your skin type and SPF factor, and Sunscreen will make sure you are safe in the sun and keep burns at bay.
