Travel Tuesdays: My favorite iPhone travel apps

There are a few apps that I’d love to share with my audience of iPhone and iPad users. Whether you are flying or driving with kids this summer or even if you are planning early. There are about 19 in all but I am going to profile just a few of them here. For the whole list, scroll down the entire widget.

Now, I believe there are android versions of most of these apps but in case there aren’t please let me know.

foursquare – Foursquare Labs, Inc. – Personally I like checking into foursquare locally so why not do so when you travel. For security purposes, you may not want to Share your checkins on social networking sites and so you have the opportunity to do so, but you can get great advice from locals and get discounts on restaurants, eateries, stores and more. In an earlier article I wrote about the Dallas-Fort Worth International airport offering travelers discounts on shops and restaurants if they check-in.

TripAdvisor Hotels Flights Restaurants – TripAdvisor LLC – I used this recently on my vacation to Maui in the spring in order to find some great restaurants to eat at.That’s how I found the restaurant Star Noodle in the Lahaina area of Maui, Hawaii.

KAYAK Mobile – – I use Kayak on a regular basis on the PC and now I can use it on my iPhone or tablet. They use a search matrix algorithm to find the best deals on air travel.

TripIt – Travel Organizer – FREE – TripIt – TripIt allows you to keep track of all of your online itineraries in one place. A must for busy families trying to keep everything in place. I used this for all my itineraries on my trips and it keeps things organized. You can also add photos as objects to your itineraries.
