Whether you are a frequent traveller or you are going on your annual break away, we all need something to keep us occupied as we embark on our plane, ferry or train journey. It is now standard to see people walking around the airport or train station with a tablet in their hand, so we have put together a list of some of the best travel apps so you can be completely prepared for your travels.
We all hate jet-lag; it is the one thing that can sour a holiday or business trip. However, there is a solution with the JetLag Genie app. All you have to do is enter the date you will be travelling, where you are travelling to and when you usually sleep from and until, and it will provide you with custom alarm clocks set to slowly change your sleeping habits. Say goodbye to that groggy, tired feeling, and all for just $2.99!

Do you know your poulet from your pollo or your patata from your pomme de terre? There has been a point when almost all of us have sat down in a restaurant abroad and ordered something that we weren’t 100% sure what it was until it arrived. Word Lens is here to stop this from happening by using your tablets camera to translate foreign text! The app costs $4.99 and comes with one language pack and currently English to French, Spanish or Italian are available. If you want to add an extra language pack on there is an extra cost but we think it is definitely worth it!
