I'm a part-time travel blogger (for fun) and I just found out about a service called Harvest Hosts. For $80/year you get access to park overnight for free at farms and vineyards all across the U.S. I wrote a review if anyone wants to learn more about it, and I'm surprised I didn't hear about them sooner. Does anyone know of any other cool travel related companies that I can look into and possibly blog about? Thanks in advance.
One of my favorite single-focus travel apps in the last year has been Flighty. It's especially useful if you have layover gate-changes, as you can quickly see a list of your current and upcoming flights and whether they are on-time or late. I usually got a notification from Flighty on gate changes well before the airline apps or airport marquee were updated, which is another nice advantage.
Another app that I am interested in trying on my next trip, is Tripsy. In the past I have put together a custom google map with all of the places on my trip itinerary, but using this on mobile is not a great experience. Trippy looks like a more focused, polished mobile experience for itinerary planning / organizing where you can view your whole trip by days or activities, etc. and just from an initial test the mobile app interface has good UX Design.
One of my favorite apps while traveling is App in the Air, a flight tracker app that works really nicely on Apple Watch. I tried a few, and basically picked it for how well it works on the watch.
Essentially you add your flights (or let it scan your inbox for tickets, though I prefer too just enter them, which doesn't take way too long) to the app, and can see all your upcoming trips and flight legs, with updates if times change and such. It'll then show how much time until check-in, which gate to walk to (which you can manually submit if it doesn't show up at first, more common at smaller/regional airports), and then how much time is left on the flight during the flight. Basically gives you just tiny bits of info to help you schedule and and navigate through airports without having to constantly re-check your phone to make sure yes, you're not going to miss the flight, and yes you're supposed to be going to Gate A3.
It has a ton of other features, but I literally keep it installed for its Apple Watch complications.
Last year I was using an app called Flightdrop, that aggregated last minute flight deals. Because they were so last minute, I didn't end up buying anything, but the spontaneity was fun to imagine and to share with friends.
Just joined Capiche, or finally jumping into the conversations after watching from the sidelines for a while? We’re glad you’re here! And we'd love to learn a bit more about you. What are you wor...
This sounds like a question with some obvious answers, but I'd love to hear if you've considered removing work apps on your phone; what held you back? why not? My phone is something that's near me...
