Great iPhone Travel Apps for Any Traveler

A while back we discussed some neat
iPhone apps for the gay traveler.

But there are hundreds of useful apps for just about ALL  travelers.
Here are some more of my favorites…

Traveling by car maybe this holiday season? You might want  Trapster. Get alerts you as you approach police speed traps! What a concept.

Since you are driving by car you may also want CHEAP  GAS.  Find the cheapest gasoline nearest to where you are, then map a route to where the cheap gas is.

Maybe you are flying – and woke up late! That’s a nightmare to be in!  NEXT  FLIGHT ($2.99)  Next Flight tracks scheduled departures from more than 4,200  airports.

Traveling International?  How many pounds =  $100?  Get  CURRENCY. provides up-to-date exchange rate information for over 90 currencies and 100 countries! Great for traveling when you need to get the latest exchange rates.

HEAR PLANET  delivers location information that really speaks to you. It’s like having a professional tour guide always by your side. Leave those bulky tour books behind and let HearPlanet show you the way.

Sit or Squat! Now this can be very useful! Especially if you’re out shopping and that fresh fish you had for lunch wasn’t so fresh!  Find a toilet anywhere in the world.
Start searching for a public toilet. Just enter an address, zipcode, city, or interesection in the search bar and you’ll be on your way to finding your next pit stop!

 PLUS  it tells you whether or not that place is worth even sitting or squatting (or standing) at.

UrbanSpoon  is the gold standard in the U.S., London, Melbourne, and Sydney: Shake your phone, watch the dials spin like an old-school slot machine, and up comes the best guide to local restaurants yet.

Where shows you what’s around you, from Starbucks to movie theaters and show times. Everything from local weather, news, entertainment, restaurant reviews, gas prices, and Yellow Pages listings near your current location. Using GPS and cell-tower triangulation, WHERE can determine your position and displays all relevant information for that area.

There is a popular saying in Florida…lyrics from an Alan Jackson song….It’s 5:00’s time for a drink!  With  Happy Houred find out where the booze is at! Available for about a dozen big cities right now, you have access to  every happy hour in their  national database.  And, to make sure all of the happy hours we offer are as up to date as possible, we let you tell us where to find the cheapest beers, tastiest half priced burgers, and craziest shot specials in your city.

Everytime I go to New York City, I am overwhelmed by their subway system and scared I am going to end up in Hoboken! KICK MAP  was designed to get more people to ride New York City’s subway system. Created with clarity and ease of use, it allows riders to navigate this vast system easily and without uncertainty. The subway map is the key to understanding this most complex subway in the world, which has 26 separate lines and 468 stations.
