The world may be evolving at a lightning speed, careers may change rapidly, but people’s hobbies may stay the same. Traveling is an essential part of one’s life, and a hobby, but instead of the usual equipment like maps, compasses and other materials can now be stored with the ubiquitous smartphone, which has all the essentials you need, and more.
Traveling is not easy, especially for backpackers who seem to trek the world with nothing but the minimum essentials. With increasingly cheaper and traveler-friendly SIM cards complete with data plans, mobile browsing is a breeze no matter where you travel. A compact electronic device has replaced several key components of travel equipments with just a few apps.
Start off by familiarizing yourself with the story, with Google Map’s Street view, streets are no longer just ambiguous drawn-out lines that may seem confusing. With Street view, it’s easy to spot landmarks and public transportation spots. It’s an essential knowledge for those who will rely on exploring the city with their feet. So, Maps? What maps? Google’s Street View is a far better service that gives you real-time footages of the city you’re about to travel, and it’s available with one click of your smartphone. To download Google Maps from Mobeep, simply type in the keyword “Google Maps” and download the apps into your phone.
Next, location-based apps are important for you to search for the best experience in the city, town of the place you’re travelling to. Foursquare serves to be a great place to start with, because many local businesses especially on food and beverages registered their businesses there, it’s easy to find them on a Foursquare map. What’s more, Foursquare is a small travel/location-based app that allows you to gather points at every shop or restaurant you “check-in” to. So this app, available in the Mobeep Apps Store, also serves as your personal pinboard on the places and restaurants that you have visited, maybe you may not come back again, but at least it’s tried and tested!
After that, looking to arrange your photos but not nearly enough to put them on Facebook, maybe you can try to organize photos on Picasa Mobile, a photography website that lets you organize and highlight photos of your day. After downloading the app from Mobeep’s Apps Store, simply add a few sections in your website and you can share your favourite highlights of your trip and receive feedbacks from anyone whether it is friends, family or even the Picasa community. It’s good to get away from the Facebook crowd once in a while!
Truly, with just you, your travel backpacks, and a smartphone, nothing else makes it easier than your mobile device, and a readily available apps store like Mobeep, and a secure mobile connection. But sometimes, apps are not 100% fail-proof, so when the apps begun to fail you, simply reach out to your friends with a phone call or a SMS. Safe travels everywhere my friend, and remember, ever need any help? Look no further than your mobile device.
