A travel app called Kayak on the other hand has a website called Kayak.com where you can pick flight schedules and could filter options for you depending on your preference and price range. From there you will be shown hotel accommodations with pictures, descriptions, reviews, and their rates that you can easily choose from.

Translation Apps

There is nothing more frustrating than not being able to communicate because of language barriers, so if you are traveling to a foreign country, there are two translation apps that you can download. The first one is an app called Google Translate. There are two options for using this app, there is a speaker option or you can type the words that you need translated in a small box. It can translate 58 languages in text and hear up to 23 languages of converted phrases, downloading this app is free on the iPhone and Andriod.

The other application is also free for iPhone and Android users and it is called Vocre, all you have to do is set the app to the language you want to translate and to what language it will be translated. By speaking into the microphone, the app will say and transcribe back to you the word or phrases you need to translate.

Mobile Security Apps

Other than your personal security, you need to make sure that your gadgets are secure as well and a perfect app to install is called Lookout Mobile Security. This app could track your phone’s location if it is ever stolen, but if you are unable to relocate your unit, the good news is that you will still be able to retrieve the files inside your phone. This app regularly backs up the data you have saved along with the pictures, files, and documents saved in your SD card, once you have saved them, you can remotely delete everything from your phone’s memory.

Packing and Reminder Apps
