A journey, any journey is an adventure on its own.

Mobile apps help you travel smarter
When you enter unknown zones on your travels, mobile apps can help you find your way
around new places.

1. Localeur

2. Skype

For keeping a live communication with people at home or your business partners while on a trip, you simply cannot go wrong with Skype. This platform is a definite leader in modern communication, but its saving grace is the fact that it is completely free, provided that you have access to Wi-Fi.

4. Uber

Finding your way around an unfamiliar turf can be hard and driving in a new traffic environment is often not an option.

Many claim that Uber has many clear and undeniable advantages over taxi services. This way you will ensure that you are always where you are supposed to be, on time.

5. GateGuru

Even with all the planning, you are bound to find yourself on an unfamiliar turf once you step out of your plane. This is where GateGuru comes in handy and informs you of the nearest bus stops, restaurants or gift shops. Truly an invaluable application for one visiting a place for a very first time. You simply cannot afford to take any chances.

6. Yelp

While speaking about finding restaurants we simply must mention Yelp. By tracking your phone's GPS, and the local ZIP code, Yelp informs you of all the restaurants in the vicinity. This is especially invaluable on a business trip since there you seldom have time to go exploring the local cuisine on your own. The trips and reviews offered by yelp are often as sound as it gets.

7. XE Currency

Switching from one currency to another is never an easy task, still although you would probably manage with some simpler rates, some currencies are simply too inconvenient to count into. This is where this application comes in handy, ensuring that you are never at a disadvantage when trading or dealing in a foreign currency. Additionally, here are some other apps for currency conversion.

Whatever you do, it is important to have a timetable. Even the most rushed business trips seldom last less than a couple of days, which means that you will have to find a way and organize yourself in this period. It is highly improbable that you will find a better way to do so then via use of Google Calendar. This amazing app can be installed on your phone, tablet or even a laptop.

9. Dropbox

If there is any data that you simply must have on your trip, it is by far the best solution to put it in your Dropbox. USB sticks often get lost or forgotten and with this application you simply cannot fail. By using Dropbox, you will ensure that all your data is safely stored and that you have an access to it at all times or as the ancient Romans used to say Omnia Mea Mecum Porto or "All my things I carry with me".
