Summer holidays are almost here. In this post we would like to continue whetting your appetite so we are recommending 10 free apps that will help you make the most of your holidays. As we are aware that one of the most exciting things about holidays is planning them, we’ll get straight to the point:

It enables you to download maps of different cities around the world, so that you can also look at them without the Internet. You can search for places (shops, restaurants, museums, etc.) that interest you from thousands of preloaded addresses and save them on lists that you create, classified by colour. You will be shown the location of a place on the map, its exact address, opening times and much more information, with the option to add your own notes about each one.

From your location, it gives you the best routes for getting to the address that you enter, as well as to choose from up to 9 methods of transport; bus, underground, bike, train, etc. What’s more, it includes maps of the public transport system in the city selected and it has an option for counting the calories you have burnt off and the money you have saved depending on the method of transport chosen. You should bear in mind that you will need an Internet connection to use this app.

You can choose the city and the kind of service you want, as well as the type of home your pet will be staying at and if whether there are other resident pets or not. Available for Apple devices.
