Posted on 07 August 2009

Before going to purchase a mess of travel appurtenance to take with yourself in the next big trip, you should have a closer look at your iPhone also. It’s a useful guide:iphone460

1- Before you depart home, email yourself your travel plan, as well as all confirmation e-mails for hotel, attraction, rental-car and other reservations.iphone-gps

2- Use the GPS and the Google Maps app to see your way around.

3- Take snaps of everything you could be held accountable for like a torn carpet in your hotel apartment or a dent on a rental car you hired. Now, you have evidence it was there before you take charge of it. Also capture information like parking levels and trail maps.

4- Send text-messages to your home instead of calling, and download the free Facebook and Twitter applications.

5- Add the destination’s weather to the weather application. By downloading the Weather Channel’s free application you will get many additional detailed forecasts than the one that you received preloaded on your iPhone.

6- Download some of the audio-books available to listen to on your iPod. Visit to receive public-domain works available free.

7- The iPhone’s clock feature enables you to receive other time zones just at your fingertips. The alarm clock in your iPhone will be much more workable than a typical hotel wake-up call.

8- Check if your destination’s newspaper features a free application; download it to stay informed with local news.

9- Look into the application store for more applications such as Lonely Planet’s travel guides, KICKMap for subway maps and OpenTable for information and bookings of different restaurants. Currency Exchange Rates usually convert local prices. Moreover, iLINGUA is having foreign-language phrase-books. These also include audio pronunciations and photographs you may point at if words fail).

10- And finally download games. You can have not only newest ones but also your old loved ones such as Yahtzee, Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit especially when you are tired of reading books and want some fun.
