Apps for tourists

It's impossible to imagine a modern person's everyday life without a smartphone. And even more so a traveler. This is not surprising because the gadget can become not only a means of entertainment but also a faithful assistant.

Of course, there are many apps that will make your vacation better. Read below to find out which apps you should install.

Getting to your destination

  • MapsMe

An alternative to Google Maps that works offline. All you need to do is download the map when your phone is connected to Wi-Fi and select the desired country or location. That's it. You can use the app whenever and wherever you want.

The assistant will help you navigate the terrain, find accommodation, a hospital or a cafe, and create a list of favorite points of interest. By the way, you can also leave feedback on the places you've visited.

  • FlightAware

No surprises on your flight! Track your flight in real time, find out about delays, and get reminders that it's time to go to the airport.

Finding a common language

  • Duolingo

A translator and phrasebook are great, but learning at least some basic phrases before you travel is a must. And this app is free to use. If you memorize at least a few dozen words, can say hello, thank you, and ask for directions, you will be even more likely to get help.

  • DeepL

A more accurate online translator than Google Translate. You can use text input, voice input, or take a picture of the page and translate it without any problems.
