Travel App of the Week: FirePlace

FirePlace

So my wife and I were having dinner the other night at the Chart House in Waikiki and when we were walking out, I noticed the table next to us had a phone on the table with a fireplace app. I’ve seen the fireplace channel (and aquarium channel) before, which I think is kind of cool, […]

Travel App of the Week: EasyMeasure

EasyMeasure

How many times have you been on the road and needed a tape measure or ruler but didn’t have one handy? Maybe you’ve needed one to see if a piece of furniture you’re going to buy will fit in your house, or if the airline’s seat pitch is really what they say it is (I carry […]

Travel App of the Week: Heirloom

Heirloom

I bet you have a ton of old vacation photos in albums collecting dust. You probably don’t have the time to take each photo out, scan it, crop it, and then save it so you can share it with friends and family, do you? If yes, then you should check out Heirloom, a free app […]

Travel App of the Week: Pager

Pager

There’ve been many times in my travels that I could’ve used Pager, a new, free app (to download) that brings the doctor to you. Heck, I’ve could’ve used a doctor that does house calls this week and I’m not even traveling. Right now the service is only available in New York City (Manhattan and Brooklyn), but the […]

Travel App of the Week: HONK

Honk

I’m a huge fan of AAA and been a member for over a decade. It’s a huge help when you’re in a bind on the road. However, I know some of my friends—especially the younger ones—aren’t really into paying a yearly membership fee (I only pay $48 a year). If you fall in that category, […]

Travel App of the Week: SitOrSquat

SitOrSquat

One of the biggest challenges for travelers (especially women) is finding clean public restrooms. Charmin’s SitOrSquat (website requires Facebook connection approval; apps below don’t) puts public restrooms on the map so the next time you’ve “got to go, on the go,” you’ll know exactly where to go. You can also add and share your experiences and […]
