Everyone has to experience them from time to time, and they are never nice. What is ‘they?’ They are long journeys. Whether it’s alone or with the kids, no one likes to spend hours doing the same thing. Not only is it boring, but it’s also annoying and a waste of time in a sense. Usually, the only thing that helps is sleep, if sleep is possible. If it isn’t, you’re in a hell of a journey, emphasis on the HELL.
That is, unless, you have a mobile smartphone handy. For the technological savvy out there, a mobile can be a real lifesaver if you have these apps.
Do you have plenty of time to kill while you are waiting for a flight? Maybe you’re going to sit on a coach for the next five hours? Well, if you are, you need an app that entertains, and nothing is more entertaining than a good movie. The best thing is it doesn’t have to cost a penny with this free app. All you have to do is download the app and stream the films direct to your phone. If you don’t have an internet connection, don’t worry because lots of apps like this allow you to download them offline. It’s like being in the cinema only you’re in an airport watching it on a tiny screen. Still, it’s better than nothing.
Are you always in a rush at the airport, or trying to find the nearest ATM? Most people are because airports are a nightmare, especially if they are huge. It’s like they’re a maze designed to keep people in, not let them out. Thanks to GateGuru, though, that isn’t an issue any longer. This app is a searchable directory which gives the user all the info they need for 124 airports across the world. So, if you ever need money or a bite to eat again, you know where to look.
The good and the bad thing about going on a long journey is that you’re going to somewhere new. It’s good because it’s a new experience, and it’s bad because you don’t know where you’re going. Take London as an example. The capital of England is a megalopolis that spans miles, so how are you supposed to know what tube to catch to the Houses of Parliament? You aren’t off the top of your head, which is why you need Citymapper. This app tells you how to get from A to B in a variety of cities around the world, whether via train, underground, bus or taxi. It even tells the user when public transport arrives and the length of duration.
Any self-respecting journeyman is always on the look out for their next getaway, even if the last one isn’t over! If you’re one of these people, you can search for your next vacation with the help of Kayak. To be honest, there is a lot of apps which do the same thing, like Skyscanner. Unlike Kayak, though, they aren’t as streamlined and as easy to navigate.
Whether you need to plan, find resources, or watch movies, these apps have you covered.
