Top 5 Apps for Your Next Road Trip | weBoost

Published by Darron Toy on


[MUSIC PLAYING] It’s summer and that means road
tripping season is upon us. It’s time to jump in the
car with family and friends and hit the open road. Here’s a list of the top five
apps for your next road trip. First off, we’ve got Waze. If you’re not
currently using Waze, now’s the time to start and not
just for your summer road trip. Waze is a navigation app
with tons of great features. Since Waze is
crowdsource fueled, it’s constantly
updating and gives you the best routes available. It will alert you to slow
traffic, accidents, speed traps, hazards, and much more. Then it will route you
around them if possible. If you see an accident
or other event, you could easily drop
this onto the map and help out other Wazers. Waze will even help you
find the best price on gas. Speaking of gas, that brings
us to our next app, Gas Guru. Gas Guru is a simple
and easy to use app that helps you find the best
price on gas wherever you are. Watch the app and it shows you
all the nearby gas stations and prices for each. It will highlight the
best price in green, so you’ll know where to go. If you don’t like
the map, you can view all the nearby
stations ranked by price. Tapping on one will give you
directions to that station, prices for all grades of gas,
and a phone number so you can contact them if you need to. You can filter by
the grade of fuel your vehicle takes and also
search for other cities, so you’ll know where to go
when you get to the next stop. When you’re on a road trip,
it’s not the end destination that counts but how you spend
your time getting there. Road Trippers helps
you find awesome things along the way like attractions,
food, and much, much more. You can plan your own trip
or use one of their guides if you feel like taking a
spontaneous weekend getaway. When making your own trip,
pick your start and end points and it will plot you a
map showing your route. Then you can add points
of interest along your way based on your preferences and
what you find interesting. These range from practical
things like accommodations, food, gas stations,
and campsites to more wacky and fun items
like offbeat attractions, quirky shops, flea markets,
wineries and breweries, and ghost towns. Add as many or as
few as you like and it will populate your map
with icons showing you where to find these attractions. Swiping up on a
point of interest brings up photos, reviews,
contact information, a star rating, and
more info like hours of operation and price. You’ll never travel the same
way after using this app. With so many amazing
points of interest to see narrowing it down
to fit into one trip is going to be the
real difficulty. There’s nothing worse
than heading out for a nice day at the beach
or a hike in the woods only to have the weather
spoil it for you. Dark Sky will help
you avoid this mishap and let you plan for your
next adventure accordingly. Dark Sky is a
hyperlocal weather app that gives you super
precise weather info down to the minute. Because it uses
your GPS location, it can tell you
accurately what to expect in the next hour, day, or week. The interface is clean and
easy to navigate, showing you all you need to know
quickly and clearly. Cycle through the chance of
precipitation, temperature, wind, humidity, and UV index. Now you’ll know whether to
bring the sun block, the rain hat, or the kite when
you go to the park. Swipe right and you’ve
got a clear view of the week laid out for you. Swipe to the left and you
can see an animated world view of storms coming your way. You can even see the
temperature and how it will change throughout the week. You can also search
for other locations and scout out the whether
they’re before you go, so you’ll be prepared
when you get there. Finally when you stop driving
for the day, whether that be your final destination or
just a stop along the way, you want to find the
best hot spots in town. Findery is your local
guide to the city, no matter which city you’re in. Using Findery is
like sitting down with a group of
knowledgeable locals and enjoying a cup of coffee
while you discuss all the city has to offer. Find the best donuts in
town, catch some live music, or relax in a quaint
secondhand bookstore. If you’re into quirky
oddball attractions, Findery has that too. You can search near
where you are or far away to plan an upcoming trip. Swipe down on a location to
add it to your bucket list, mark that you’ve been there,
and leave your thoughts on the place or you can
upload your own discoveries. Tap on a location to
read more about it, peruse others
memories of the place, check out photos, see maps,
and find more information about that place. Findery is constantly
expanding and changing as people upload their
thoughts and memories of places all over the world, so there’s
no end to all the great places you’ll discover. All these apps are fantastic
and can help make your next road trip the highlight of the
year, but none of them are going to do you any good
if you’ve got no cell service. All of these are based
on crowdsource data. So if you’ve got no access to
the web, you’re out of luck. If you’d like to learn
how you can stay connected wherever your travels
take you, then check out one of these videos here. And those are the
picks for my top five apps for your next road trip. Don’t see your
favorite app on there? Let me know in the
comments below. And don’t forget to
subscribe to our channel. We’ve got videos like this
coming out every week. Thanks for watching and have
fun on your next road trip. [MUSIC PLAYING]

First Fate Social App is also a good app, when it comes to travel recommendations from friends. Like, if I want to see which places are recommended by my friends, I can just see their first fate profile. Saves the hassle of scrolling through posts.

I think you can also add an app that calculates tolls and gas for the road trip to your suggestions.

TollGuru (Android, iOS) allows you to quickly look up the price of all toll bridges, roadways, and tunnels from start to destination.

Road Trip Planner for the iPhone is the best.
