The evolution of technology has now enabled practically everyone to carry a computer when we go on a trip, either for work or simply for leisure, on vacation. It is not about laptops, whose transport in travel is far from universal, but the smartphones, pocket computers that allow us to be connected wherever we go.


Having a small touch computer in each pocket has allowed a category of applications to show off its usefulness, we talk about specialized applications in organizing routes, in locating transports or in recommending what to see and where. The applications to travel tourist sites with the maximum information available so that we have our backs well covered.


It is time to make a compilation, as was done at the time with applications to travel to the beach or the mountain, when to see how the most popular travel applications are carried out and which ones we recommend to have installed. Always being aware, of course, that many will be compatible with each other and we will not have to choose one, exclusively. The best thing is that their characteristics are complementary in many cases. Let's see what the mobile apps park offers us.

Minube


It had to be the application that headed this list because it can be, thanks to different awards and classifications achieved, the best mobile travel application that we can find at the moment. It is not a newcomer, Minube has been running Android and iOS apps for several years now.

The application of Minube is focused on the discovery, on the fact that our mobile phone helps us to know corners of all the places we travel to and to encourage us to make new trips. Once there we will know where to eat or where we can stay and has a recommendation section of nearby sites by quite practical geolocation, a very widespread function in this type of apps. In addition, we have trips configured to take advantage of weekends, romantic destinations, etc.

Minube is a free application in all the operating systems in which it is present and creating an account in it is a fairly simple procedure. The account will also allow us to save a history of our visits and mark places as favorites, to plan trips. Choose Minube is a success, no doubt.

Yelp


When we talk about mobile applications to prepare and take advantage of trips, both Yelp and Foursquare / Swarm have to be present, two of the leading applications in their sector and that have a critical mass of users so high that they are impossible to ignore. Let's start with Yelp, the first to launch and that is currently at the top of the list in terms of geolocalized recommendations.

Perhaps the only big downside that Yelp can get at this point is that its service is not as popular in Spain as would be desired by its creators, although they have a well-trained and specialized work team, managing communities throughout and width of the country with the aim of continuing to make the application grow.

Txema Marín, the person in charge of his community in Seville, tells us about Yelp:

Yelp is a great tool to enjoy your vacation as if you were from the place you go. With millions of local business reviews written by local yelpers, you will discover those corners and secret businesses that do not appear in guides or websites written by tourists for tourists. As we like to say to us: travel like a local.

Yelp is based on a clear premise: to offer simple recommendations to users while encouraging their participation, not only at the time of comment but also with local events to empower the community. In Yelp we will find geolocalized recommendations on all kinds of places: from monuments to museums, passing through hotels, restaurants, libraries and even parking. In addition, from Yelp we can book in those places that allow it, making it much easier to organize trips and sightseeing.

Foursquare / Swarm


Before we mentioned it and here we have it, the maximum competitor of Yelp in terms of geolocated recommendations and that, by the way, has not carried out an efficient strategy with the division of the original FourSquare in FourSquare and Swarm, since the second every time it incorporates more functions that were previously joint.

If we spoke before the world competition between Yelp and Foursquare is inclined towards the first, in Spain it is the opposite, counting on a greater acceptance in our country. The division into two different applications was a slight brake on its growth but no one doubts today of the usefulness of Foursquare as an app to get recommendations on what to see and where to go in each city we visit, even if it is the city in which we live and we created to move like a fish in water.

Like Yelp, Foursquare also lives from its community and its contributions. Recommendations with photographs, personal and professional valuations and a long list of information so that, when connecting it and facilitating our geolocation, we have a long list of activities to carry out wherever we are. Another great option if we are going to travel to any place on the planet.

Tripadvisor


Tripadvisor is one of those applications whose value when it comes to travel is not only present in its recommendations, since it has an important community of users, but also we can make reservations both accommodation and transport. Thanks to Tripadvisor we will find interesting places to visit and in all places of the world.

With Tripadvisor we can plan the trip from our house but it is also useful once we arrive at the destination, with recommendations for guided tours, tourist sites that we should not miss and transport management, not just flights. Tripadvisor is considered one of the best applications for travel planning and management and is present on many platforms.

In addition, like the rest of the presented ones until the moment, it has a quite defined form of financing that does not have to do with that we have to pay for the application or for the service so we will find it free in the stores of applications in which this

Airbnb


As important as getting directions in the place we visit or being able to plan activities before starting it is to save some euros in the accommodation and travel in a different way, this is where Airbnb comes in, an application that allows us to access a huge community, a catalog of private accommodations with single rooms, houses and complete apartments at our disposal.

With Airbnb we can get accommodation in each place we go, as its catalog of accommodation is wider every day. We will deal directly with the owners of the sites where we will stay so we will eliminate intermediaries and obtain better prices than in conventional hotels. And yes, it has an important part of the community with recommendations and personal evaluations of other users.

In fact, we will not even have to leave Airbnb to make the payments because we can manage them all from our account in the application. If we look for a way to stay in places other than traditional, and at great prices regardless of the luxury we are looking for, Airbnb has to be on our list of apps installed on the mobile.

Flysmart


When we think about traveling, we do it by imagining what we will do in the destination we arrive at but rarely in the trip itself, and when we take a plane it is not always as simple as boarding at point A and disembarking at B. Many users do long trips that require stops at different airports and this is where Flysmart takes on special relevance.

Flysmart is the app that will offer us detailed information about airports in all corners of the planet. If we have already designed new trips and we know where we will make the stops, or where we will have to wait until they allow us to get on the plane, from Flysmart we will have information about their stores, available services and everything relevant that the airport may contain.

Waiting for our flight in a chair is not the same as taking a few beers, having breakfast or simply watching television. Flysmart will tell us what we can do in each airport where we will be and it becomes, therefore, an ideal application for trips with stopovers or even with long waits in remote terminals on the planet.
