What Are Your Top Five BlackBerry Travel Apps?

81760 20460 24035

Alex Kinsella is the product manager for App World over at RIM so when he listed his five BlackBerry travel apps on the Huffington Post I had to check them out. I totally agree with him that the Kayak app is awesome and the WeatherBug app is pretty good. It was the first I had heard of LocalEats so I will definitely be checking that one out.

On the other hand I think he missed some that are standard fare on my BlackBerry. For example, Google Maps is the MUST have travel app on my BlackBerry. Also I find that WorldMate is the best travel planning app out there though TripIt is not far behind. I also keep a copy of both Navita Translator and BBTran (aka FancyTran) handy for international trips. Last but not least I agree that Kayak should be on the top 5 list since it not only lets you search for flights and hotels it even gives you the hotels phone number which is sweet!

So I thought I would throw it out there. What are your top travel apps?

Here is my top 5 travel apps:

Best of all all five apps are free! 🙂

  1. Google maps
    World mate
    Weather eye

  2. Google Maps is a definite must have. I haven’t done much travelling since BB Traffic came out, but that could come in handy when you need accurate directions. Poynt is a great app for finding businesses, restaurants, events, people and movies. UrbanSpoon would be nice to find local eats. WordRival is a great time killer and fun to play against friends. The in-game chat feature can get your competitive juices flowing with a little scrabble trash talk.

  3. My top 5:

    Google Maps

  4. Interesting. I travel a lot and I don’t use many of these besides Kayak for booking. No GPS app as I can search the mobile web or use the car GPS (so no google or BlackBerry maps), didn’t like worldmate, definitely no BlackBerry Traffic. Possibly Poynt.

  5. TripIt
    Google Maps + Latitude
    BB Browser with bookmarks to the mobile site for the airline or rental agency
    Poynt to see what’s going on around me

  6. TeleNav
    Google Maps
    TuneIn Radio

    These apps have most of the things i need to keep track of things as well as locating what I need

  7. Google MAPS
    i dont need any other, so thats my top 2

  8. I don’t travel much, but Google maps is fantastic and berry weather is great.

  9. Google maps and Kayak. Works perfectly for me.

  10. gmaps

  11. I use pretty much all of the above. I also have Amaze GPS, which used to be free. It is a very decent voice navigation app with white, yellow pages, address search, local search. It costs about $36 for one year licence. Good alternative to a dedicated in-car GPS system.

  12. I use WorldMate & Tripcase together. Worldmate handles all the calendar sync for me very well. But I don’t think their Pro version is worth $49 a year when the only added feature I would use is the flight status updates. Tripcase doesn’t sync with the BB Calendar.

    Agree on:
    Google Maps
    XE Currency is one I use a LOT.

    Navita Translator is also very helpful

  13. Kayak is great but it is massive at like 2+mb.

    Local Eats I had never heard of so I’m looking forward to DL’ing that.

    I use BerryWeather but the WeatherBug looks decent enough.

    Tumblr I dont use.

    HRS had never heard of before but looks very cool. Will have to give that one a try as well.

  14. No one is going to argue over Google Maps.

    I’d also argue for Poynt. You can search by cell-phone location or manual input and also, the versatility. You can look up local movie showings, restaurants, businesses, gas prices…I’m sure most of you already know everything I just said.

  15. This is a good list, but FlightView is my favorite travel app. With all the weather-related delays and cancellations lately, I need reliable flight tracking. Since this app lets you view flight schedules between cities, I can find alternate flight options if there is a bad delay or cancellation.
