6 ways your Smartphone has changed the way you Travel
Smartphones have changed the way we live, Our parents used to pray to God before they go to bed, but today, we check one last message on what’s App before we go to bed. Anyways i am not here to criticize smatphones. I am writing this to highlight the benefits smartphones has bought while we travel.
1. No more printouts.
Your train journey doesn’t need a printed ticket any more. Just show TTE tickets from your smartphone. Even your hotel booking and other tickets can be shown on your smartphone. What an idea sirji.
2. Google Maps and Navigation.
You need help for direction. Pull out your smartphone and check the direction on maps rather than asking locals at every nook and corner.
3. You have became more social (albeit online):
We all know where you are traveling thanks to your latest facebbok updates. Be it airports checkin or hotels or restaurants, its all on facebook.
4. What’s nearby.
Every time you go to a new destination and not sure what to do,where to eat. Pull out your smartphone and search for nearby areas for what you were looking for. Foursquare, tripadvisor, and many more apps help you out.
5. Take a quick pic.
No matter how good your DSLR or how many lenses you are carrying, you still need your phone camera to capture that quick moment
6. Your own DJ.
And lastly, all you needed for your trip was some good music. Be it a road trip or waiting on an airport, your smartphone comes to rescue if you don’t have a dedicated music player like ipod.
