Travel Apps for Your iPhone

TripIt -

tripitWell, while this app may not be dedicated to the iPhone, it does help a little. It directs you to a website called tripit.com. You have to type in a lot of data that you then have to send out to an email address that’s mentioned on the site. The app then sends you a full itinerary that is saved in an easy-to-read format.

Thumbs up:

Gives you an easily accessible travel guide that tells you about your travel plans.

Thumbs down:

The time taken to add all the information can be draining. Plus, it works as a turn off. The weirdest thing of all is sending all your personal information to an email id that you don’t even know.

World Mate -

This one turns out to be slightly more intuitive than the previous app discussed here. It allows you to find details on flights, hotels worldmate iphoneand other information that a holidayer needs.

It gave up 3 options for the hotels (which was definitely not comprehensive enough judging from the fact that there were many more hotels available). The flight search, however, works better and gives as many options as there are.

Thumbs up:

It is a well-thought out application.

Thumbs down:

It definitely needs to work on its hotel search. That part of the app isn’t comprehensive enough.

Urbanspoon

So, you know that you want to eat some Thai food and your partner wants some good old pizzas!!! How do you find out where these restaurants are, when you’re in an unfamiliar city? The answer comes in the form of this application called ‘Urbanspoon’.

All you have to do is enter in the kind of food type, location or price range that you’re looking for; and this app will automatically give you an option of restaurants that suit your needs. They also give you an option of linking to your facebook. If you do choose this option; it’ll let you know about the eating joints that your friends have visited in the past.

Urbanspoon

Thumbs up:

A decent enough guide for someone who’s lost in a new city.

Thumbs down:

Most of its options are limited to America. If they do think of expanding this one, it could well turn into a gastronomical bible that becomes a must for travelers across the world.
