• Hawaii: There's an app for that

    2010-12-02

    As technology becomes more advanced, consumers become more attached to their handheld devices. Mobile application developers understand this phenomenon quite well, and thus have created a number of helpful programs to help children of the digital age plan their vacation in Hawaii.

    iPhone users can download the free "HI Landmarks" app, which is a helpful guide that serves as an electronic tour around the state. Using the smartphone's built-in GPS, it points travelers to various sites within Oahu. Another informative free app is "Hawaii News Now," which has a list of events occurring around the island, weather information, flight times and much more.

    Foodies heading to the Aloha State may want to download "Hawaii- What Chef's Eat" program. It helps tourists discover the best in local cuisine thanks to insider tips from the island's most esteemed chefs - Alan Wong, Roy Yamaguchi, D.K. Kodama and more.

    Beach bums who want to stay connected while on the oceanfront should check out "Reef Fish Hawaii," which educates iPhone users on local marine life through illustrated descriptions. "Surf Report" is another option for travelers, providing information on the area's surfing hot spots.
