Apps make my life on the road a lot easier. Below are some of my favourite travel apps that can help all travellers. Google Maps is the most helpful, but there are many other apps to make your trip a lot easier.
F-Secure Freedome VPN – Android – App Store
A private VPN is very important when travelling the world. Social media sites and calling apps are blocked in many countries, but with a VPN you can unblock it. Freedome is the best I’ve used. You can get 4 months for free with the code “w9f4ct”.
Sidekick – Android – App Store
More a blogger/business-app. Tired of waiting for a reply? Send your email via Sidekick and check if your email has been seen.
AwardWallet – Android – App Store
AwardWallet keeps track of your loyalty programs, such as your frequent flyer miles, hotel and credit card points. This application gives you access to your accounts and travel plans even when you don’t have internet access. Use the code “free-iavkoy” for a free upgrade for first time users.
WifiMapper – Android – App Store
Wi-Fi is one of the few things I need to travel the world. Like most people, I would rather walk until I find free Wi-Fi than paying for it. WifiMapper is a new app that makes my free Wi-Fi mission a lot easier around the world. Download the app, allow it to use your location and it will show you the way to the nearest free Wi-Fi hotspot.
There are more than 2 million hotspots around the world, even in places like Bangui and Nuuk making it one of the must-have apps for world travellers.
