Summer is fast approaching and going for a vacation is usually our priority before the season comes. Most of the time, we plan where we are going, the things we should bring, and the people we’re going with. But even with all the planning, sometimes we forget some of the things we planned to bring.
Because a lot of people, especially the millennials, are deep into traveling and exploring, some app developers and those who offer IT services in places like Australia and America, have created their own apps to help explorers make their summer vacation easier to plan, more fun to do, and something that won’t be a stressful event in their lives. We’ve listed some of the apps that you should be downloading if you plan to go on vacation soon.
Before downloading one, your smartphone must have a magnetometer or magnetic sensor for it to work properly. A lot of people may be familiar with the regular compass that we’ve used in the past decades. Since our technologies have advanced significantly in just a few years, even a phone can be a compass itself. This app can also use your phone’s camera for a real-life view and it supports both Google Maps and your GPS.
