4. Duolingo

duolingo-header-664x374

Over 70 million people have registered with Duolingo, a free and incredibly well-designed language learning app. Though not a replacement for proper language tuition, the app is a fun way to get the basics, or to keep yourself fresh on grammar and vocabulary, before a trip abroad. Just like a computer game, the app guides you through levels that you need to complete before advancing, and you gain experience points along the way.

5. XE Currency

xe-currency

XE is the go-to site for currency conversions on the web, so it’s no surprise that its application is so popular: with over 20 million downloads since launch. It has lots of business-oriented features, such as rates for precious metals and historic currency charts, but for the traveller it is most useful for the simple fact that it’s able to convert every world currency. It also functions offline by saving the last updated rates, which is great if you’re in a place with limited connectivity or trying to save on data.

9. Yelp

yelp_update_08-14-2015

Whenever you find yourself at a layover hotel in a new city, the first thing to do is pull up Yelp just to see what’s nearby. You might use it to find a great place to eat, check out a tourist attraction, or locate a pharmacy within walking distance. Users post reviews and photos to help narrow down the search so you can determine whether or not it’s worth it to leave your hotel room.

Available on iTunes & Google Play

10. My Panda

What’s to love: Part app, part security blanket. Wherever you are, the app reads your level of safety and security. Should anything go terribly wrong, the app will help you find an emergency route, alert the local police, report dangerous activity, and find emergency information.

In addition, the logo and the name “PANDA” is similar to “SOS” in that it’s internationally recognized.
