Whether you are looking to travel abroad or just to another state, having the best travel apps of 2015 on your side will make the whole thing much easier. Here are the best apps for the iOS system, like your iPhone and iPad, which will make traveling a breeze. Some of them will help you find hotels, while others are great for money conversions and finding words in different languages.

XE Currency Converter

Unless you are a Forex mastermind, chances are that you don’t know how much a dollar is worth in Europe or Asia without having to look it up. One of the best apps for currency conversion is XE Currency Converter. This app has all the major currency types, and you can easily convert two currencies within a matter of seconds. This is much better than having to do the calculations yourself, and you won’t feel ripped off by accidentally given too much.


Booking a hotel when you get to your destination is a great way to be left without sleeping arrangements, which can result in a huge family fight. However, the TripAdvisor app can help you avoid all that fuss. This app not only helps you find and book the best hotels at your destination, but it will also make dinner reservations and you can find top hotspots in the area.

Google Translate

Do you want to say something in a different language, but have no idea how? Or, do you know another language pretty well, but you sometimes forget a word here and there? The Google Translate app will solve that problem.

This app has many different languages, and you can easily find words that convey the exact thing you want to say. It should only take you a few seconds, so you can easily have a conversion without having a long wait time between finding the words you want.


SkyScanner is a powerful app for finding nearby flights. One of the best things about this app is that you can easily find flights that are much cheaper than the ones you would find on major trip networks, so you can save a ton of money by using this app. Not only that, but you can find flights within seconds, so even if you forgot to book a flight or if you quickly need a new one, this app can help you out.

Packing Pro

What do you need for your trip, and did you forget to pack anything? The PackingPro app offers a great checklist that will show you all the things you need to properly pack for your trip, and you can go through the list to make sure that everything is packed and ready to go. Whether you constantly forget one or two items, or you are afraid of forgetting those items, this app will make sure you don’t feel that fear of forgetting your most important items.

Fotopedia National Parks

Do you love to see nature? Then the Fotopedia National Parks app may be the best app for you. This app has a collection of over 3,000 photos that display all the major national parks in America. You can easily find a great national park, and this app even shows the contact details so you can plan a trip there.


Making dinner reservations has never been this easy. The OpenTable service is known by many people, but their app is relatively new. The app lists over 20,000 restaurants, so you are sure to find something in your area. Whether you want the high-dining experience, or if you are looking for something cheap and fun for the kids, this app will give you exactly what you need.


There are many great apps new to the 2012 year, and these apps are very helpful for finding flights, packing your stuff, getting a hotel or doing anything else you need before or during your traveling. Make sure to load your iPhone or iPad with these apps if you want to make the most of your vacation. These apps are meant to help you out, and they are all designed with the user in mind. Just try them out, and you will see how much easier traveling can be.

  1. I am always looking for the best travel apps, and you have a great list here. I am what they call a seasoned traveler, so I am always looking for essentials, but don’t want to clutter. I travel frequently on business related to my job at Dish, which means I need apps that will keep me organized and stress free. I have two apps that work well for me that I’d like to add to the discussion; yelp and dish remote access. Both are fantastic; yelp helps with finding out where the hot after hour spots are, and dish remote access allows me to access movies from my home programming via my tablet. I can relax to a movie should I run into a stressful situation.
