Travel App of the Week: Salk’s Airport Transit Guide

Airport guide

Salk’s Airport Transit Guide recently got my attention when business travel writer Joe Brancatelli called it “an absolutely essential app that improves the quality of life on the road…the bible for travelers…[that] will save them dollars from day one, as it has for me.” For more than 30 years Airport Transit Guide has been the guide that […]

Travel Tip of the Day: The T-Mobile Test Drive

T-Mobile

The T-Mobile Test Drive I’ve written before about T-Mobile and why it’s a good choice of carrier if you travel a lot internationally—but why listen to me when you can try it yourself? Right now, for a limited time, T-Mobile is offering the chance to try out its network for free for seven days. Even […]

Travel App of the Week: iCarPark

iCarPark

How many times have you wandered around an airport parking lot (or a mall’s for that matter) looking for your car? For years I’ve been taking pictures of my parking spot with my cell phone, but if you don’t want to look like a freak—like I decided I didn’t—you can download iCarPark for $0.99. The […]

Travel App of the Week: MiFlight

MiFlight

How long is the security checkpoint line at the airport? Every traveler wants and needs to know. MiFlight tells you. How? Social sharing. MiFlight is free and only available on iOS.

Sign Documents on the Road Don’t you hate it when you’re on the road and you get an email that requires you to print, sign and scan a document—and they need it ASAP? It’s not only going to ruin part of your day to track it all down; it’s going to cost you a good […]

Travel Tip of the Day: Find Vegetarian Food on the Road

VegOut

Find Vegetarian Food on the Road I’m not vegetarian, but I always hear from my friends who are that one of their biggest challenges is traveling, since it means they have to eat out often. For those that can’t rent an apartment or stay with friends/family (and so for whom eating in isn’t an option), VegOut should make […]

Travel Product of the Week: T-Mobile Personal CellSpot + More

T-Mobile

The big travel news this past week was yet another example of T-Mobile shaking things up in the cellular industry. The latest is their introduction of the T-Mobile Personal CellSpot, which is like having a T-Mobile tower in your house (or wherever you choose to put it). My biggest (and really only) beef with T-Mobile is that […]

Travel App of the Week: Moovit

Moovit

Thanks to a listener who tunes in to hear me on Leo Laporte’s The Tech Guy Show for turning me onto this fantastic app! The shortest way to explain Moovit is to say that it’s like Waze for public transport. The slightly longer version? Using real-time updates from users, it helps you “find the quickest, most convenient routes in real […]
