It's that time of year again - time to start planning your yearly vacation! Whether it is a staycation, cross country trip, or even something abroad, having a mobile device can make your vacation more like, well, a vacation!
I don't know about you, but planning a vacation can leave me a bit frazzled, especially if it's in an area that we've never been to. It can be frustrating planning a route, finding reasonable accommodations, and figuring out the attractions nearby. It begins to feel like work instead of fun.
With information at your fingertips, in the form of apps, Google, and even your friends on Facebook, things can be a whole lot easier.
MapQuest can help you plan out your trip and show you how to get there.
Apps such as Expedia and Orbitz can help you save money and stay organized with hotels, car rentals, and flights. The Around Me App will show you banks, restaurants, gas stations, hotels, hospitals, and more in the area in which you are.
Having your cell phone on hand means you can let friends and family know where you are and how you are doing on your travels, whether with a phone call or text. Postagram can turn your Instagram photo into a post card to send.
Speaking of Instagram, you can take, store, and even print all your photos using that app. So much easier than having hundreds of photos stored on a computer or camera for printing who knows when.
Sometimes having the world at your fingertips really makes it easier when you are out and about in the world!
