Best travel app

GET THIS APP. The quality and accuracy of the content is incredible. I’m surprised it’s a free app with how much helpful information it contains. This app has been such a great help with my travels especially being able to see where all my bookmarked places are located on the map. It also contains basic phrases in the country’s language and a currency converter. If you haven’t already, get this app.

Comprehensive

The books are good for preplanning a trip, and the maps in the books are handy when travelling. The app however is far more comprehensive than I would have imagined. I no longer take the books or the maps in fact.
