Since the app is connected to Facebook, users can log in with their Facebook information. After logging in, Loopt Pulse users can choose between a map or photo tour of various venues.
6. Flight Track
This is one of the best apps on the market for tracking flights. Flight Track’s real-time maps, departure information and delay updates are useful for any traveler. Since the app is based on international travel, users can track flights all over the world. This app also provides gate numbers and other helpful flight information.
7. Google Maps
Since many map providers online don’t regularly update their data, some maps aren’t reliable. Google Maps is the most reliable map source. Since it is continually updated, app users can load maps of destination cities to get a better idea of a travel route, see where a business is located or try to figure out where they are.
For travelers who don’t feel like reading during a trip, Netflix provides a good substitute. Simply plug in headphones to the iPad in any area where there is Wi-Fi to enjoy a streaming movie. There are plenty of movie selections available.
The best travel tips come from experienced travelers. This app gives iPad users quick access to driving, dining, entertainment and sightseeing tips in nearly any destination city in the world.
