• Smart phone apps to take on the go

    2010-05-04

    Whether one is a business traveler heading to a conference, a technophile heading on vacation or just a student flying home for the summer, the smart phone has become an indispensable piece of travel tech. Yet while smart phones come in all shapes and sizes, the only one whose applications are ever mentioned in the media seems to be the iPhone. Fortunately for users of the Motorola Droid phone, a number of free apps are readily available to help make the most out of a trip.

    Business professionals who use their phone more as a lifeline to their business will appreciate the organizational capabilities of the ASTRO File Manager app. This simple program allows users to create detailed and organized tiered file systems to keep information easily accessible and simple to navigate.

    Techno geeks hoping to browse videos while they fly might enjoy the Skyfire 2.0 app, a flash supporter that can produce quick and clear video files from online sources like YouTube, even those embedded into other websites like Facebook.

    Students won't have to worry about getting lost while traveling thanks to the free Google Maps navigation App, which offers turn-by-turn voice navigation and full GPS function.
