Technology and Apps Travel Hacks

  1. Find your way by foot, transit or car. Google Maps
  2. Get online without roaming fees. JiWire WiFi Finder is available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
  3. Secure your free WiFi connection. Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to secure your internet access so that you can do banking, book a room with your credit card… online. I use StrongVPN. Sign up and use it on all your devices including your phone, table and computer.
  4. Need to go?? The SitOrSquat: Restroom Finder app is available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
  5. Do things you didn’t think possible. Use If This Then That to do all sorts of things – send your Instagram photos to Twitter and have your photos show rather than a link, save photos automatically to Dropbox, turn your lights on and off at home. They’re called recipes and all sorts of techie people keep creating recipes to get more from your technology.
  6. Stay in touch off the grid. Send and receive messages anywhere in the world with the DeLorme inReach Explorer which earned a National Geographic Adventure Gear Of The Year Award. It also has built-in navigation.
