I use this app every single day of life. Anywhere I am traveling I put into this app. I do not even want to begin to guess the time I have saved because of this. I have gone against what Waze suggested a few times in my life, and I lived to regret it. This app has also saved me from a few speeding tickets, and from getting caught behind something akin to a train wreck. It has saved me from being late to work, and it has saved me on my travels. I love this app. I swear by it

I love using Yelp! It is really helpful if you don't know the area. It is easy to use and easy to find the restaurant I like. I usually go to a restaurant with good amount of feedbacks and three stars or above. You can choose the price range when you pick a restaurant. It is a great app to explore the area. I would definitely recommend to other.

Airbnb is awesome!! As long as you find the time to dedicate some time to searching for the specific necessities you require, reading reviews, and browsing pictures, you can find a truly amazing place to stay. I used Airbnb for the first time when I was heading to Paris for a few weeks with my family. After spending time searching, we found an amazing apartment in the Montmartre neighborhood that was everything that had been advertised. It is important to notice reviews other people have given, and definitely get in touch with the home owner to feel them out and see if you can detect any sketchiness. If you put the work into it, it most definitely pays off. I always use this site and definitely recommend it to family members and friends.

Loved it! Used if for a trip to Hawaii. It was so easy and affordable - a great value! We got unlimited miles with our rental, which was great for 9 days and lots of exploring. And, our rental came with a cooler, umbrella, and snorkel gear. They picked us up & dropped us off at the airport. Turo was an easy-to-use-app, but the person we rented from was AWESOME. Wouldn't hesitate to try it again.

I was pleasantly surprised by this app. It was very helpful during a trip outside of the country, and it was fun testing what it was able to translate.

One of my goals has always been to expand my language boundaries and this app is the way to do it. Easy goals, fun to do, feels like a game more than a learning experience but you are definitely getting the hang of a new language. I do feel like I can cheat the one that checks when you say a phrase, but you know if you are doing it right. I had a friend learn Italian with this app in 6 months. He was able to go on vacation and not be fluent, but be able to communicate without too much trouble. I am learning Spanish. Great App for adults and children.

The value from TipIT comes in when you're stuck in an airport for 6 hours and the airline isn't giving you timely updates. I had the TripIt app and I was the only passenger who knew what was going on. I travel frequently and this all has saved me a lot of frustration. Well worth the price.

Trip Advisor has made traveling locally and out of state so much easier. The amount of hotels, restaurants, and activities that can be searched in various locations makes their app an essential addition to every traveler's phone. You see truthful ratings regarding whether what you were searching for was a hit or a miss and great details explaining why. Not only do I use the app to search for information, I also supply information for areas I have visited. It is very easy to search or leave reviews on this site. A definite must have for travelers.
