If you’re like most travelers, you can always use a little help in making your trip less complicated. If you have an iPhone, then consider yourself lucky because you have a vast number of travel apps that can help you handle anything on the road. Whether you’re traveling along I-80 and need to find a gas station or you’re visiting the U.S. Capitol building in DC and need to locate your car in a hurry, check out these latest travel apps for your iPhone.
Having a checking account can be convenient—until you travel to an area that doesn’t have your bank. Unless your account is with a large national bank like Bank of America or Chase, your chances of finding an ATM that will not charge you additional fees are minimal. If you’re in a rush but you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you’re in luck. You can use ATM Hunter.
You can use ATM Hunter in various ways. You can use your phone’s GPS to locate an ATM. You can search by airport. And you can simply type in the address of your current location to find the nearest ATM. In other words, the days of wandering around mega airports like O’Hare in an attempt to find an ATM are over. Instead, your Apple device will show you the map for your destination so that you can always stay on track.
If you’ve ever gone to a large theme park or mall, you know that you can sometimes lose track of your vehicle. Some parking lots and garages are so complex that you can easily spend a lot of wasted time looking for your car. Of course, you really don’t want to be late for your flight, business meeting or dinner reservation, so you want to make sure that you can quickly get to your car with no problems. Luckily, you can use the EasyPark app on your iPhone.
With EasyPark, finding your car is always easy. With the touch of the screen, you know the path to your car, as well as its location. You’ll even know how far away you are from your vehicle. All things considered, no matter where you are, you never have to worry about memorizing parking space details just so you can get where you need to go.
Finding your car isn’t the only issue for traveling around an unknown area. Have you ever let your gas tank get really low before you even begin to look for a gas station? Unfortunately, you might risk running out of gas in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, those days are over too, as long as you have a smartphone like the iPhone.
With the FuelSpot app, you can find thousands of gas stations through your phone’s GPS system. And since businesses are always changing, the system is brought up-to-date each week to ensure that your information is always correct. You can even find out an area’s average price for fuel. Ultimately, looking for the right spot to fill up is a piece of cake with FuelSpot.
Travel is more convenient today than it ever was. Having to refold your road map after each use is a thing of the past. All a road warrior has to do for a road trip is put in an address or destination and—voila—he is on his way. Using other devices and applications to help minimize problems while away from your home is increasingly popular. In the end, as long as your have a smartphone like Apple’s iPhone, you’ll have no problem meeting any of your travel needs.
