Preparing for the outdoors has never been easier. Gain access to live reports on the UV Levels of your location with recommendations on the best time to relish in or avoid the sun and UVLens will even do a personalised skin assessment to advise how long you’ll be able to enjoy the sun before entering the UV danger zone.
Its inadvisable to head off into the wilderness to go cycling, hiking, backpacking, or mountain climbing without being well-prepared in advance. Komoot makes it easy to plan sport-specific, topographic routes using navigation technology and location data and then guides you along your journey with voice navigation and comprehensive maps.
Long gone are the days when people would ‘check in’ using Foursquare to find friends and the app now rivals other popular review apps such as Yelp to provide photographs and reliable reviews of venues all around the world. Venue listings are detailed ensuring you’ll never turn up somewhere outside of their operating hours or without cash when no credit card facilities are available.
Whether you’re looking to book a good hotel room at a discounted price for tomorrow, next month, or just 10 minutes from now, HotelTonight makes this process easy by loading the rooms of their approved hotels onto the app at an incredibly discounted price – leaving you with plenty of extra cash to enjoy River Belle Casino! The app includes a loyalty programme which unlocks even greater discounts as your points stack up.
This app is indispensable if you’re travelling to a foreign language country as you’ll be able to speak, write, snap, or type anything in any of the app’s 103 supported languages and instantly translate it to your preferred language. The snap feature is particularly helpful as the Google Translate app makes use of your phone’s camera to create augmented reality translations which is super helpful when trying to decipher street signs, menus, or even books.
Using public transport or trying to navigate the road system of a foreign country can easily turn into a nightmare and that’s why Rome2rio is so helpful.

Instagram is without a doubt the best way to capture and share every leg of your journey and keep your friends and family updated. The latest version allows you to save images to a private album, which makes planning your must-see locations far easier, and you’ll be able to make your photos look like they were taking by a professional with their easy to use filters and editing tools.
An absolute must for anyone travelling abroad, the XE Currency app tracks constantly updated currency markets across the world to provide up-to-the-minute currency conversion.
