Three must-have travel apps

Remember when GPS technology was the stuff of covert operations? Now it comes standard issue on every smart phone and we use it for everything from getting directions to choosing restaurants. There’s no place where this technology comes in handier than when you’re on vacation and in a new city you don’t know so well.

Once you get where you’re going, how do you figure out what to do, where to eat, and how to get everywhere? Whether you travel by train, plane or automobile, here are three travel apps that will help you thrive when you arrive. Bonus – They’re all free.


There’s nothing fishy about Goby, an app that’s like having a personal travel guide. One that knows everything that’s going on from high culture art exhibits, to off-the-beaten track hiking trails.


After all that hiking, you’re certain to work up an appetite. Yelp is our pick for the best app to help you find a great restaurants and see what others had to say about it.

Sit or Squat

Perhaps a bit too much lemonade with lunch? Well then you’re going love the Sit or Squat app which will show you on a map where the closest commode is and whether or not you should walk the extra block to find a more suitable place to go when you really gotta go.

So check out this travel tech twirl (try saying that 3 times fast) for some of our favorite must-have apps.
