Best travel apps for BlackBerry 10 OS

When it comes to planning, managing or sharing your wanderlust, no other app is better than BlackBerry Travel. It was launched earlier this year for BlackBerry 10 Devices. It helps the user in finding the best deals on hotel and car rental services. This app has been developed by BlackBerry itself and if we talk about the third party apps available on the BlackBerry World, there are significantly fewer apps available than what is available on iOS or Android. But the BlackBerry apps are significantly well-designed and bug free. These are a few must-have apps on your BlackBerry 10 device, if you are a frequent traveler:

BlackBerry Travel

BlackBerry teamed up with WorldMate to launch their own travel app BlackBerry Travel. It is a complete travel directory, packaged and presented as a Smartphone app. It helps you store and later refer to your travel itinerary; book hotels or cars; monitor flight schedules; convert international currency and communicate with LinkedIn contacts.

If you have this app you will never get confused again about what to eat or where to eat – in a foreign country or location. Urbanspoon is an easy to use ‘restaurant-finder’ app, which finds places to eat according to specific cuisines or dishes, price range and place. It also provides ratings from newspapers, blogs and other users. Spin the slot-machine and let the app pick out the best places for you, using GPS and the ratings.
