Say You Want To Find A Toilet While Traveling, There’s An App For That

Tuesday, June 30, 2009


With over 50,000 apps already for the iPhone, figuring out which ones are the best for the intrepid traveler is the hard part. Lucky for you Travel + Leisure’s naming their top 11 travel apps, ranging from the basic — unit conversion, voice recorder — to the truly necessary — where’s the closest free toilet? And you were just using it to play solitaire. Pshaw.

UPDATE: I’ve been alerted by inside sources of another list of travel apps, this one coming from National Geographic, and it has 20, which is way more than 11. Which is better? You do the math. Here’s the list.

    Although so very convienient, I ask this… has traveling gotten too wired? Is this the natural progression of the world, or is there some degree of travel romance that is lost in the process. I say this because, recently, I sat in a hostel lounge in Beijing with 6 others all staring at their computer screens. I ended up chatting with only one of those people… Who's to know the answer?? (afterall, I ended up skyping my mom during my time in the lounge)
