You can now find all the travel tools you will ever need on your trip in one app. Frommer’s Travel Guides has just launched a new FREE app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that provides tools such as a tip calculator, packing list, postcards, currency converter, unit converter, time translator, travel trivia, city guides, flashlight and apps we love.
All of these features are designed to help make traveling easier and enjoyable:
The tip calculator gives travelers a global tipping guide and helps calculate splitting the bill. Packing list is a tool to create reminders to insure that you will not forget anything before your departure. You can create your own list or pick from Frommer’s suggestions. Postcards allow you to stay in touch with friends and family by creating an online postcard and sending it via e-mail, Twitter or Facebook. Currency converter can convert 180 currencies and the exchange rate is updated daily. Unit converter can convert global temperatures, distance, weight and volume. Time Translator will tell you the time of day anywhere in the world which is great for global meetings. While waiting for a flight you can test your travel knowledge with the Travel Trivia app. The most useful feature may be City Guides, since it can help you find a restaurant or hotel where ever you are using Frommer’s content. Flashlight is useful in dark places to read menus or find your way around an unfamiliar hotel. It stays lit for up to 30 minutes! Lastly, Apps We Love is a roundup of great travel apps that may also come in handy on your trip.
