               In the present era of digital world, no one would ever imagine of a smartphone without apps. Since, Android is the most common platform on the earth, it offers more than a  million of variety of apps for the users. The Android app store which is known as Google Play Store is flooded with all categories of apps, but whenever we search anything in the search box, a lot of similar looking apps will be listed up which definitely creates confusion to the users. Very few of them are proved to be useful and valuable indeed, but the rest are only a wastage of time.       
  
        As this website focuses only on travel, some interesting apps are listed below which will make you a smart traveller as well as your journey easier.

(1) Google Maps: Obviously this app needs no introduction to you. Most of the devices have this app already installed. This app works good for looking up any location on the globe with normal and satellite views. Navigation system also works good. Now you can also save a cached copy of a particular location for offline use. But the problem arises when the mobile network is unavailable, everything cannot work well, we need an offline map.

(2) HERE Maps: Although there are a number of offline maps available in the Play Store, this  is the best app which also works offline. You can either use it online or it also offers you to download the whole map of a particular country or its separate territories. The only drawback is that, downloading offline map makes the app bulky occupying more memory.
