The end of the year is fast approaching and hopefully you’re jetting off somewhere exotic soon for a few weeks on a much needed holiday! The whole point of a holiday is to have some time off and relax, so the last thing you want to be doing is stressing out about packing, keeping organized, and speaking a foreign language. Here are three apps for your smartphone from www.dialaphone.co.uk to help you through every step of the way!
- Before you go – Packing
Remembering to pack every last thing you need for your holiday, whether a short break or extended trip, is difficult. Usually we all forget one thing or another! However, with this Packing app some of the stress can be relieved as you can create a comprehensive packing list and check off items as they’re packed away. If you’re unsure about what you need to take, the app also allows you to view sample packing lists and templates designed for various common trip types. Lists from previous trips can also be saved for future reference.
- When you get there – Vocre
The Vocre app will translate whatever you say into your device’s mic into another language. You set both the language you want to translate from and then into. The app includes English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish translation. Simply speak directly into your phone, and the app will provide you with the translation in both spoken and written form. However, bear in mind that you have to purchase credits in-app that you use up each time you translate something. But isn’t it worth it to make sure that you are understood in a foreign country?
- Throughout your trip – TripIt Travel Organizer
Are you sick of paper itineraries, travel plans, and digging through your email inbox to find that confirmation email? TripIt Travel Organizer gets rid of this clumsy process. The app links directly to your email account and records every confirmation number delivered into your inbox; whether it’s a flight, hotel booking, or dinner reservation. Each one will be input into an organized itinerary, so you can access each one all in the same place. Flight delays and last minute changes delivered to your inbox will also be updated automatically, so you can keep up to date on the status of your trip.
