Create unforgettable memories while you elevate your online business.

If you told me when I was a kid that you could automatically translate what someone said, as they were saying it, then translate what you said back, I would have thought you were a superhero.

Use these smartphone travel apps to make your life easier!

Google Translate

Google Translate

Available on iOS and Android, Google Translate allows users to type in or dictate short sentences and the app will translate it from one language to another.

Google Translate also has a visual translation feature which translates text using your camera. That’s pretty awesome.

What we like:

  • Translate with a voice reply
  • Ability to detect unknown languages automatically
  • Use your camera to instantly translate in 26 languages!
Google Translate
Citymapper

Citymapper

Available on iOS and Android, Citymapper is the ultimate award-winning transport app making complex cities easy to use!

Citymapper is like if all of your favourite transport apps had a baby and then it was blessed by a unicorn. But better. I really can’t stress enough how useful this app is, I feel lost in a city without it.

What we like:

  • A to B journey planner with ETA
  • All modes of transport (tube/subway, bus, rail, ferry, bike/car sharing, Uber)
  • Real-time departures and disruption alerts
  • Frequent updates with an endless stream of new and amazing features
  • Available in Chinese!
Duolingo

Duolingo

Available on iOS and Android, Duolingo is Apple’s iPhone App of the Year!

Learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Irish, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, and English. Totally fun. Totally free.

What we like

  • Everything!
  • It’s also free
PackPoint

PackPoint

Available on iOS and Android, PackPoint is a travel packing wizard that helps users by providing a checklist of travel essentials, depending on the nature of their trip.

What we like

  • It’s very easy to use
  • PackPoint checks the weather forecast and builds your packing list accordingly!
