Five Cool Travel Apps You Have to Try

You’ve been anxiously waiting for months, but the time has finally come. Your vacation is right around the corner, and you need to prepare. But where’s the best place to start, and what should you focus your time and energy on? For us, we turn to technology and the mobile applications that help travelers thrive in unfamiliar environments. So, without further ado, here are five of the coolest travel apps on the market today; apps you can use to make your next vacation absolutely epic!


If you’re headed to another country where English is not the primary language, then you should check out iTranslate. The app works as a real-time voice translator that takes spoken words, in multiple languages, and either converts them into English text or a digitized voice. And when it’s time for you to offer your response, simply speak into the app and it will translate English into whatever language you require.


Like it or not, ride sharing is here to stay, and when traveling to a different city, there’s no better way to get around than Uber. I won’t insult your intelligence by presuming that you’ve never heard of Uber before today. In fact, I bet most of you have used the app at some point over the past year or so. If you haven’t, now’s the time.

Before you venture off to your next vacation destination, make sure you have the Uber app installed on your phone, and enjoy the freedom that comes with comfortable rides to and from everywhere you can think of.


Shameless self-promotion aside, Skyscanner’s mobile application is the only app you will ever need when it comes to finding and reserving flights, hotels and car rentals at rates that simply cannot be beat.

What makes the Skyscanner app stand out from the rest is best defined by the word partnerships. Skyscanner has 1,200+ industry partners, each of which factors into the results that come from using its revolutionary flight search engine. These partnerships allow Skyscanner to scour thousands of travel websites to deliver the lowest rates on everything you need to have an amazing time on your next vacation.

ProCam 4

Kick your vacation photos up a notch with the ProCam 4 app for IOS. In addition to giving users a full set of manual controls, which are much more robust than what you’d find via pre-installed software, you will also have the ability to manually adjust resolution, play with shutter settings and a whole lot more.

Never again will your vacation pictures and / or videos be unworthy of the adventures you take. Download the ProCam 4 app today, and experience what it’s really like to capture the world in HD.


I travel for a living, and I don’t go anywhere without several audiobooks. From long plane rides to downtime on the train, a few good stories will keep you relaxed, informed and entertained along the way.

One of the coolest features Audible has, in addition to its robust library, comes via the ability to download each audiobook to your smartphone and thus relieving your dependency on WiFi. So, no matter what corner of the world you might find yourself in, Audible will allow you to enjoy your favorite books anywhere with ease.

Time to Jet

I have an evening plane to catch, and as much as I’d love to stick around and introduce you all to a few more exciting travel apps, time is scarce as I’m booked to be in Paris tomorrow morning and have yet to pack a thing.

If you’re seeking additional knowledge on what travel apps you should consider downloading before you next vacation, check out this article by Forbes Magazine titled, “The Best Travel Apps for 2017.” Inside you will find several additional applications that will all, in one way or another, make your next vacation as enjoyable as it possibly can be.

Thanks so much for taking the time. Travel safe, and please take care of each other.
