As Technomads, it should be no surprise that we are mobile technology lovers.
We love our iPhones (and yes, we did just both upgrade to the new iPhone 4), and we are growing increasingly addicted to our iPads (yup, we have two).
We consider both of these fine pieces of technology to be essential components of our technomadic arsenal. There is something magical about having the Internet in your pocket, a world’s worth of maps on your lap, email and messaging always with you, music and video on demand, and an abundance of incredible apps that every day make our iGadgets ever more useful tools for facilitating our full time domestic travels.
Oh, and apparently the iPhone actually makes phone calls too. (We really aren’t phone people…)
Today we’d like to share some of favorite apps that we use specifically in our travels. Please note that aside from the apps we were involved with creating, we paid for all of the apps and these are unsolicited reviews. Just our honest opinions. But, if you do opt to buy any of these apps off our recommendations, the links below are iTunes affiliate links and we will get a tiny cut.
When we first starting looking for apps to create on our own – a campground locater was tops on our list. At the time, we could find no decent options. More recently however, there seem to be a bunch of them – and we’ve been trying several of them out. There still does not seem to be one single app that does everything – but there are some promising potentials. We find ourselves using a combination of apps depending on the situation and type of camping or overnight parking we’re looking for.

Each of us needs to find our own balance that combines exploring the world with preserving it. And if you stay conscious to your consumption, you don’t have to compromise your wanderlust for your desire to live a sustainable life.
A bit over a year ago we released 'Coverage?' for the iPhone, iPad and Touch...
It very simply answers the question – “is it safe to drink the water?” for over 200 countries. A very handy reference tool for travelers .

I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
When you travel, you want to do as the locals do. Not only does it often lead to more fulfilling and illuminating experiences, but it usually saves you money too.
