Got Mobile Apps?

I compare today’s mobile application technology to the iconic slogan “Got milk? It does the body good.”  However, my slogan would be something like “Got mobile apps? They are convenient time savers that provide instant access to a plethora of information using smartphones and mobile devices.”

Know Before You Go

Are you looking for the best travel deals for your next trip to San Diego?  If so, you may want to consider using a travel & tourism mobile application like TripAdvisor to help you plan your trip. TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, according to  The site provides all sorts of travel information for travelers.  You can use the website and mobile application to book flights, car rentals, hotels, and vacation rentals.  You can also read and write consumer reviews of hotels, restaurants, and attractions as well as view photos and receive advice on any destination in the world.

TripAdvisor also offers these free travel mobile applications:

City Guides (offline maps, reviews and tours)

SeatGuru (seat advice, flight status, and more)

GateGuru (airport maps, stores, tips, weather and flight status)

The Fork (make reservations at the best restaurants)

The TripAdvisor mobile application is easy to navigate and includes all the necessary travel tools.  I especially like the “Downloaded Cities” tool for those of us who want access to a particular city’s travel and tourism information without having to be connected to the internet or having to wait on 3G and 4G connections.  For example, if you are traveling to San Diego, and want to “know before you go” you can simply login to your TripAdvisor mobile application account and download your destination city to your smartphone or mobile device.  After download completes, you can launch your destination city’s travel information without having to connect to the internet.  How clever and convenient is that?  Give TripAdvisor’s free travel mobile application a try today and see for yourself.

  1. Hi Darla, These are all great suggestions for mobile applications to use in relation to traveling. I recently returned from a vacation to Germany, and I found myself using various apps in planning my trip, more so than I have done in the past. There are lots of great resources out there that can help you get the most out of your travel experience. Also, I agree that TripAdvisor is great – this is definitely one resource I always use to plan my trips. Good post!



    • Hi Katie, I bet you had a wonderful time in Germany! Yes, there are a lot of great travel apps currently available with even more being added. Isn’t today’s mobile technology amazing?


  2. Hi Darla,

    These apps all sound amazing and like great time savers when planning trips! I haven’t done too much traveling until recently but I will definitely be looking into these apps before my next trip.
