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! 🙂
