You loved our original travel apps post, and we heard you loud and clear! So, we’re back with our second installment of travel apps that every business traveler absolutely needs!
Get out your smart phone and get that app store open, because you won’t want to miss these…
Good old Google is back at it again. This one may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s a seriously helpful tool. In addition to getting you where you need to go when you need to be there, enter your destination before you leave wifi and Google Maps will actually keep your route on screen, tracking you as you go without internet access! With this app, you’ll never have to plead your case for being fashionably late ever again.
Oanda Currency Converter
Want to know how much in your native currency that latte will cost you? Oanda’s got you and your bank account covered. This app allows you to convert currencies in the palm of your hands using up-to-date exchange rates.
Roam freely and worry-not about your phone bill being sky-high! The Skype app allows you to make free video or phone calls and send instant messages to anyone with a Skype account over wifi. The app also has some great features for purchase, too. Reach mobile and landline numbers anywhere in the world at affordable rates, or give online presentations using the screen sharing feature!
Pay attention to deadlines instead of trying to remember your itinerary because Tripit has you covered! This app allows you to pull all of your hotels, flights, car rentals and appointments into one convenient itinerary so you know exactly where to be and when.
Evernote: for when your dog might actually eat your homework. Never risk losing all of your notes ever again! This app is basically a virtual notepad that will keep you organized while you’re away from your desk. In the free version, users can clip web pages and images, access notes across all of your devices, and find text in images. Evernote even lets you group notes by notebooks or tags, enable password protection, and allows you to share your notes with colleagues.
And there you have it! Stay tuned for more, or check out our previous post on more great business travel apps!
