Best Apps For International Travel

It's good to get out in the world, but you don't want to go unprepared. Traveling involves solving a hundred little problems like how to get around, how to speak the language, and even what time it is. These apps are here to help you stop worrying about these little needs and enjoy your trip.

Get the Best Deals

Your travel, lodging, and transportation are possibly even more important than your destination; it doesn't matter if you're in the most exciting city in the world if you don't know how to get there, where you're sleeping, or how you're going to get around. Here are some apps that will hook you up with a flight, a hotel, and a car, if that's how you (literally) roll. They could save you some money by bundling or let you compare rates from a bunch of different platforms to help you stay on schedule and get to the important business of relaxing and enjoying your trip.

Find Your Way

Whether you know your way around town already, or it's your first time setting foot in a new place, it's never a bad idea to have a good map at your side. And it's even better if your navigation doesn't depend on an internet connection or having to download anything. These apps will set you up to make sure you can get to your destinations easily.

Communicate Wherever You Go

These apps give you tools to break through the language barrier and hopefully not have too many awkward moments. Some of them will even do the talking for you so that you don't have to worry about pronunciation. And if you're cool with just constantly holding up your phone to people so they know how many oranges you want or whatever, that will be a pretty handy feature.

Capture All Your Experiences

What are you planning on using to remember your trip? Your memory? No; you need a camera. And these apps are here to beef up the one that's already built into your phone. They'll help make your shots clearer, give you a boost when you're shooting in less than ideal lighting, and provide tools to help you shoot like a pro. They probably won't make your post-vacation slideshows any more interesting for the friends and family you subject to them, but that's more a failing of the format than the pictures themselves.


A better camera app


Complete control

For photographers looking for more control over their images.

While Camera+ has long been an App Store stable, it continues to add more and more features for photographers to help capture that perfect shot. Recent additions include slow-shutter support, ultra-low ISO and much more. Apple Watch users can even use the app on the wearable device to set a timer.

Why we love it

I have nothing bad to say about this app, it's not a fluke that Camera+ has topped the iTunes charts for so long. The combination of an easy-to-use interface and powerful manual controls makes it a must have for anyone looking to take their iPhone photography to the next level.

Microsoft Pix Camera

Capture and create amazing photos with a new camera app that does the work for you.

Microsoft Pix Camera

Compare the photo

For those looking for a camera app that adjusts photo settings automatically.

If you are a photo-taking fanatic with your iOS device, then you have probably tried tons of camera apps. But, the Microsoft Pix app claims to take the work out of capturing the perfect photo with automatic setting adjustments for every shot.

Why we love it

Microsoft Pix is certainly easy to use; just open and capture your shot. You can also adjust previous photos you have taken and saved to your device with available filter effects. The images come out nice and you can do a quick comparison of the photo you captured with the adjusted one.

Know What Time It Is, No Matter Where

If you have any kind of schedule or itinerary on your travels, it's probably a good idea to know what time it is wherever you are. And if you're traveling or doing business between multiple countries or time zones, it becomes even more important. These apps will make sure you know what time it is wherever you are -- or need to be.
