    5 Travel Apps for 2016

    Everyone has different views when it comes to traveling. Some just want to unplug and unwind while others want to go see do everything. No matter which one you are every trip involves some sort of planning. We compiled a list of travel apps that will not only help you plan your trip but also can help you out in a pinch.


    This app is perfect for pet lovers looking to bring their furry friends along when they travel. BringFido.com is the world's leading pet travel website and the #1 trusted resource for dog owners looking for the lowdown on the best hotels, attractions, and restaurants that welcome pets. The app also helps you find nearby attractions, upcoming dog events, and local resources such as dog walkers, groomers, sitters, veterinarians, and pet supply stores. 


    The interstate app that every traveler should have. This app uses your device's location to determine where you are on the highway and then displays what's at upcoming exits. Use the app to search upcoming exits for restaurants, grocery stores, amenities, gas stations, and even campgrounds. Whatever you need, iExit will find it.


    Planning your next trip couldn’t be easier with this app. Instead of searching forums and message boards for what sites to see and where to visit. Simply select which country or destination you would like to visit and the app will present a list of popular destinations and points of interest. You can easily add these locations to your trip itinerary and view them as colorful markers on the multi-destination map. You can also send friends or family maps of your full adventure with the click of a button. Trips can also be saved in the cloud and stored with all their itinerary items which include times, dates, cost, and user notes. 


    A versatile app that is perfect for everyday use as well as when you're traveling. Glympse is a fast, free and simple way to share your location using GPS tracking in real time with friends and family. Lost and having a hard time locating your friends or family? Send a Glympse to let friends and family where you are. If anyone ever wants to know where you are just send them a Glympse.


    Looking to go out to eat? Not sure where to go? Use OpenTable to discover, explore, reserve, and manage restaurant reservations free and instantly—anytime, anywhere. OpenTable’s app helps you discover new restaurants; view menus, reviews, and photos; and earn reward points towards your next delicious meal. You can use the app to find a place to eat, anywhere in the world!  



    While not an app, Hipcamp is definitely worth sharing. Hipcamp is essentially the camping equivalent of Airbnb, instead of room sharing it offers land sharing. The websites allows users to book and list camping spots as well as serves as a comprehensive guide to camping. Landowners can earn a money temporarily renting out their land and campers can find camping spots that were previously unavailable. Hipcamp users can search for campgrounds based on location, natural features (beach, waterfall, forest, etc.), activities (biking, hiking, rock climbing, etc.), and amenities (showers, pets allowed, RV hookup, etc.). It also enables users to search available sites based on requested dates.
