Traveling during the holidays is an absolute pain in the derrière, but you can make it a little easier on yourself, and your travel companions, but equipping yourself with the proper arsenal of apps. Since I often travel for both work and play, I put together a helpful list of the Android apps I’ve use to make my travel days less stressful.
If you’re traveling by car, Google Maps is simply not enough—even if it does integrate some of Waze’s functionality. The benefit of having Waze (Free) installed is that you get access to all the real-time, socially-curated data that other users are posting without waiting for Google to aggregate it to Maps. So, if an accident happens on the road out of town, Waze will immediately notify you of other routes available to avoid the mess up ahead.
