Although the whole point of a holiday is to kick back and relax, sometimes, you might find it difficult to switch off. Our pick of these top apps to use while you’re away on holiday will help to keep you and your little ones occupied at the beach or pool, should all that sunshine get too much for you.
Plan your meals out, where you want to go for a cocktail, check where the locals go to eat and drink and decide on where you want to go for a day out, whether your little ones prefer riding on rollercoasters or dive-bombing into pools and throwing themselves down slides with Gogobot. You can ask others for their recommendations and also take photographs and send them as postcards to your friends and family while you’re away.
Play and bet on your favourite casino games with the Unibet app or mobile site, http://unibetmobile.co.uk. If you can’t watch the match in the sports bar, don’t worry – use the Unibet Football Stats Centre app to keep up to date with the latest match news, fixtures, deadlines, transfers and tactics.
Perfect for keeping the kids occupied, Project Noah is a brilliant tool for documenting wildlife and plants while you’re on the move. Take photos, categorize them and upload them to let your children become “citizen scientists” on the move, contributing to global missions around the world.
The Weather Channel
One of the most important things to us when on holiday is lots and lots of glorious sunshine. Check out what the weather’s doing where you are using The Weather Channel app – get up to date information on the temperature and weather and get alerts for rain, snow, frost and wind. Ideal for planning days out and trips down to the hour, as you can see when it’s likely to be sunny, shady, rainy, snowy or windy at the touch of a button.
If you’re planning on going to some popular tourist spots, like museums, landmarks or even a historic town, HearPlanet is the ideal app. It provides audio tours of popular locations around the world, with most of the information gleaned from Wikipedia – so that you can get to grips with each and every part of the tourist spot without having to take your eye off the action.
If you’re travelling by car, GasBuddy is the companion app for you – check it for the best fuel prices in your local area or use it to find the nearest gas station so that you don’t run out of fuel whilst driving.
