Travelling could be very messy if not planned accordingly. Thanks to the tech-savvy world for discovering smart phones and developing applications that are blessing to a relentless traveller like me. Most of my travels are planned on a short notice. If I have to travel to a place which is complete alien and have very less idea about it, I had to carry a lot of stuff to make sure I haven’t gone missing. Geographical map, tourism books, guides and things keep adding to the list. I end up with baggage that is a total mess and unsure where to start from.
A smart phone has made everything simple and comfortable. Half of my baggage is managed by my iPhone. There are many apps that are developed every year which helps you to find your holiday destination and plan it in your budget. Hassle free travelling is in your pocket now.
According to me the most useful travelling apps I found so far are:
Citymapper – I have been using Google Maps for quite some time until I found this app. Citymapper is more comprehensive and offers real time information regarding to departures, city routes etc. Available in 30 cities around the world, provides more detail information if you like to keep a tab on every aspect of your travel plan.
Snapseed – For someone who wishes to cherish every memory of his travel experience, Snapseed App is designed exclusively for them. Not everyone have a good camera, or you might have forgotten to take it along.

However this App built with features of precious metals, historic chats, and currency conversion updates, helps the traveller to plan his trip accordingly.
