The best travel apps for 2017

Greece ● 16 August 2017
 

In 2017, some cool new applications for iOS and Android, which are very useful for demanding travellers, became very popular. These are the best free travel apps for 2017, which you will find interesting for your next trip to Greece.

GeoSure

GeoSure can keep you safe in foreign countries and cities. It provides you with information from trusted sources, like Interpol and local authorities, about health risks, environmental hazards and political threats.

Detour

Detour is the ideal travel app for those, who don’t like the conventional walking tours with large groups and a tour guide. With this app, you can walk around the most amazing neighbourhoods of a city in an off-the-beaten-track route, which is guided by locals. The GPS finds your location, and you can feel that you have a person next to you, who shows you the highlights, tells you stories about your surroundings and moves at your pace. Thus, you get a local’s perspective, who does not overlook some distinctive areas of each destination, like the tourists do.

Sleep Cycle

The jet lag is the most difficult part of the long flights. A change in the time zone and the exhaustion of the trip can make you feel lethargic. Sleep Cycle uses the accelerometer in your smartphone, and it monitors your movement, determining in which sleep phase you are. Thus, it wakes you up when you are in the lightest sleep phase, helping you get up calmly. If you travel to Greece from USA or Asia, this travel app will really help you.

Solotraveller

Solotraveller helps you meet new people when you travel alone. It is a great tool to expand the circle of people you know worldwide and connect easily with travellers in the same destination, browsing through innumerable profiles, which you can filter by age, gender and location. Together with staying in a hostel in Greece, where you can meet numerous young people, Solotraveller is your second chance to have fun in your destination.

Packing Pro

Packing Pro helps you remember what to pack for your journey, and it also sends you reminders of things you have to do before leaving. With this app, you can also create packing and to-do lists.

Triposo

Triposo offers you a way to find places of interest nearby, taking into account the time of the day, the weather, the location and the opening hours of these places. Thus, it suggests a plan for you according to this information.

Gym Finder

Are you a huge fan of the gym and you don’t want to miss your daily fitness routine during your vacations? With Gym Finder, you can find a gym or a fitness centre near you in order to stay fit and healthy if your hotel gym is too small for you.
