Not every trip means you’ll be unplugging. There are many of us who depend heavily on our cell phones to stay connected, to document our trips, or even when navigating around a foreign country where there may be a language barrier. With that in mind, it’s worth taking a look at some of the best travel apps currently available.

If you travel frequently, consider TripCase which can dramatically simplify your travel plans. You can keep track of multiple flights and hotel reservations in one central place instead of fumbling around with multiple apps. What’s more, you can easily allow your approved contacts to keep track of where you are, removing the need to constantly provide updates.

It can be a little intimidating when you arrive in a country where you don’t speak the language, but thanks to Bravolol, you’ve essentially got a portable Rosetta Stone in your pocket. Phonetic spelling is provided and the app will pronounce everything for you, perfect if you’re unfamiliar with an alphabet. Best of all, once you’ve downloaded a language you won’t have to depend on an Internet connection, which can often be costly in foreign countries.

Speaking of Internet connection, CityMaps2Go allows you to download entire maps for more than 7,000 destinations throughout the world. There are also articles and suggestions provided for many itineraries so you can prepare your own itinerary while you’re there.

While there are many apps available for currency conversion, the appropriately named Currency is one of the best apps. You can add over ten different currencies if your itinerary includes multiple countries. Make sure that you download the latest exchange rates while you still have a data connection.
