Summer is coming up and you know what that means: ROAD TRIP! Use these apps to to get you from A to B with ease and share your adventure along the way.
Duh, It’s Google Maps but better! Now it reads the instructions out loud to you. It’s a full fledged GPS-unit-killer. It even does things those fancy devices don’t like voice search, traffic view and tons more.
When you fire up this app it will present you with the location near you with the cheapest gas! Always a big deal with the price of gas these days. You can also punch in your car’s MPG to calculate how much you are spending per mile based on your speed and distance.
Nothing puts a buzz kill on a road trip like blue lights in the rearview. Trapster alerts you to upcoming speed traps and cameras so you can stay one step ahead of Johnny Law and make it to your destination with your wallet intact.
Now that you’ve got the semantics out of the way, it’s time to document your adventures on the open road. Trip Journal can keep track of your pictures, comments, notes, itinerary, videos with geo-location info and upload them to your social networks (Facebook, Youtube, Picasa & Flickr). It’s an awesome way to keep a digital scrapbook of your travels.
