I was thinking about tech tools I use that might be useful for you … and thinking … and thinking.
You see, I’m posting this late because I’m in Atlanta for my Walden job. I travelled all day yesterday, had meetings last night, and then all day today. So it hit me — share some of the apps I use when I travel. So here we go … drum roll!!
NOTE: These are all iPhone apps — Android users, let me know if you can get them, too.
YouVersion Bible — Great app for many versions of the Bible and for some awesome devotions. I actually use it all the time, but it’s a must-have when I leave home.
Southwest Airlines — Pretty much the only airlines I fly. I can check my flight, have notifications sent, access my boarding pass, and even make reservations.
Weather Channel and MyRadar — I have to know what the weather is like so I can pack the right clothes. When I arrived in Atlanta yesterday it was 39° — when I fly home next Wednesday it will be 85°. Needless to say I had to pack smart. MyRadar shows me what the current radar looks like and what’s coming toward me.
Google Maps — Helps me find stores, restaurants, and shops.
Altimeter — I like knowing the altitude … what can I say?
Waze — Put in my destination and it charts the course. Includes speed limits, road hazards, and more.
Uber and Lyft — I don’t take taxis or shuttles any more. These are cheaper and usually cleaner because the drivers use their own cars.
FitBit — I’ve got to keep exercising and get enough sleep, especially when I’m traveling. I can also record my food and water intake.
Music — Gotta have my tunes!!
Kindle — Gotta have my books!!
Netflix — Gotta have my movies!!
Yelp! — Helps me find restaurants in my area and then lets me know how good or bad they are. When the restaurant website is included I can see what they sell that I like to eat.
Vegman — Locates vegetarian and vegan restaurants. I don’t eat meat (only fish), dairy, sugar, or bread, so the choices can be slim. This helps me see the restaurants that have pescatarian options.
I hope this gives you some ideas for apps … the choices are boundless!
What apps to do use when you travel? Leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to learn from you!!
