7 free travel apps you’ll use on every trip.

Whether you are heading out on a trip for two days, two weeks or two years, there’s an app for that. BOSTON, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Strategy Analytics’ just published iOS apps forecast predicts the Apple iOS App Store will reach nearly $30bn in revenue by 2021.It wasn’t too long ago that we put the major mobile operating systems head to head, but with big updates from both Google and Apple in the meantime, we think it’s worth another look at where they both stand.It’s nearly Halloween, the time of year when we get to cover everything with fake cobwebs, pumpkins and witch- or zombie-theme designs — as well as celebrate the holiday with apps on our phones.Quixey, a mobile technology company, today introduced a cutting-edge Android launcher designed to put Indian users, who have come to expect more intelligence out of their phones, in control of their mobile experience.

Launch by Quixey completely reimagines the home screen, style and functionality of Android devices to deliver on Quixey’s mission of connecting people to apps and apps to people. While Android is an incredibly powerful mobile system, users today are looking for more efficient devices with a better way to quickly and easily get things done, and the ability to customize and personalize their experience. All you have to do is forward your travel confirmations — hotels, flights, restaurants, etc. — to and it creates an easy-to-read, easy-to-share and easy-to-edit travel itinerary. Its intelligent shortcuts use machine learning to uncover and deliver the right app functions to users from inside both apps on the phone and across the app ecosystem.

Upgrade for less than $50 a year for flight updates (that are sometimes even quicker than airline alerts), awards and points tracking, refund notifications and more. Tomorrow global content owners Netflix, Hulu, Disney, YouTube, Spotify and others will experience exponential revenue growth fueled by in-app subscription sign-ups. At its best, Android 6, known also as Marshmallow, can look vibrant and beautifully ordered, with the classic lines of the card-based interface adopted by Android itself and most of its major apps (and apparently Facebook now). It’s a three-dimensional graphical adventure game where you play Manny Calavera, a travel agent for lost souls whose life is suddenly complicated by love. People: suggests contacts to call, text, message or email based on usage patterns at certain times of the day and serves as a single location for management of these communications.

After your GIF-like video is finished, you can upload them straight to the app or share them elsewhere. (Free) Here’s a note taking app to try out if you’re looking to change things up. Netflix recently allowed in-app sign-up for its service and quickly climbed the ranks of the highest grossing entertainment apps in more than 20 countries. Search: quickly finds exactly what you want on your phone, including apps, contacts, messages, settings and more, while at the same time providing the most comprehensive deep search for apps and functionalities not necessarily downloaded. Apple’s continued position as a premium brand, App Store popularity and embedded technology easing in-app payment will contribute to increased sign-ups for subscription services on the iOS platform.

You can share your “gorror-story” on your own social media or join the uprising by posting to a public gallery, where you can watch the outbreak unfold in real time. Cards: presents a stream of local and relative content for a specific user from across all the top apps—even if they are not downloaded on the device. “It’s not the interface of a phone that drives user experience, but the intelligence of the software behind it,” said Tomer Kagan, CEO and co-founder of Quixey. “Users will find that Launch allows them to tap into all the power of software on their device rather than manually going from app to app. If you want an easier way to compare the two approaches, try logging into Google Drive and iCloud on the web—the same design principles stretch across most of these companies’ products, for better or worse.

It also integrates with Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo calendars, and generates reports so that the status of all projects can be seen at a glance. It’s a reimagined Android home experience that combines machine learning and the mobile technology we’ve been developing for years, and it delivers on our vision of breaking down the barriers of apps.” “Nearly 60 percent of the population in India is under the age of 30 and app usage has grown by at least 131 percent, outpacing the global growth rate. The popularity of the App Store, which will see more than 300B apps downloaded between 2008 and 2021, offers an important channel for companies seeking to reach new users, upsell existing users and extend reach internationally.

It’s one of the most mobile-savvy countries, with many consumers looking for alternatives to the disjointed app experience much of the world has grown to accept—downloading, clicking and using separate apps for every task,” said Guru Gowrappan, Chief Operating Officer of Quixey. “Expanding our team and offices in Bangalore and building a product in India for India was only a natural step for us to reach the mobile-savvy and early adopter audience. The app is also easy to use, designed well and packed with features for no cost. (Free) The concept is in the name: Snap Palette helps you create an entire palette of colors using a single photo. Apple will also be buoyed by the new Apple TV and Apple Watch which will account for a small percentage of downloads but will be useful in extending the value of subscriptions.

With the Yahoo Weather app, we can choose to get as simple or as detailed information as we want, and it’s displayed with cute animated icons and beautiful Flickr photos, all without a single ad. Don’t want to incur high roaming charges just to message your friend, check for an email or find directions to that awesome restaurant you read about? Use the app to identify the hex codes and voilà! ($1.99) You’re probably already familiar with The Weather Channel—now the channel has refreshed its app, and you might like what you see. It’s not that easy to figure out at first—it takes a bit of time to find the “open from gallery” option in the toolbar—but the results are worth it.

Snag the WiFiMap app and find nearby Wi-Fi spots, including map views, directions, passwords and user-generated tips on the signal quality and location of the hotspot — is it a cool, hip coffee shop or some back alley bench? You fire up the app, let it scan your features for a moment and then watch as your face is transformed into a zombie mask that moves as you do — with colored eyeballs, gory wounds and pallid skin that stretches and changes as you turn or open your mouth. There are also a handful of new features, like a 15-day forecast (it used to only be 10) and the option to go ad-free. (Free) If you didn’t already know, there’s a pretty decent comic creator for Windows Phone. You can adjust the effects that appear on your face to personalize your zombie look, and even choose to be made over as a human survivor in faux zombie make up.

The effects are startling, and you can snap a photo of your zombie face or record a short video that can be shared on Instagram or other social media. One, almost everyone we know (and most likely that you know) already has WhatsApp on their phone, crucial because these types of apps work only between people who already have them. If you use a little imagination in your poses, you can make it look like the “ghost you” is is stepping, creeping, or rising out of the “normal you.” Free on iOS. None of the information Siri stores about you goes back to Apple, and while that means some drawbacks in terms of customizing your experience across multiple platforms and devices, it does mean you can be more sure of where your data is going and how it’s being used. A few similar apps have also materialized on Android, including Ghost Photo Maker, which produces merged spirit photos similar to the ones you’ll get from Ghost Lens.

For a similar app that is slightly lower tech and adds static special effects to a traditional selfie, try the Walking Dead: Dead Yourself app, on both iOS and Android. OK, so there’s no perfectly functioning translation program (yet), but if there is going to be one in the near future, we’ll put our money on Google Translate, because it’s pretty close right now. Unless you’re using a Nexus device, getting upgraded to the latest version of Android is still a frustrating process. iOS updates are simpler, faster, and available on older devices. To up the ante with scary sounds, take a look at the Free Halloween Sounds Pro app, which adds a sneaky little trick to the same-ole press-n-play soundboard. Its Timer Trickeration mode let’s you choose from a selection of sounds, such as a blood-curdling scream or haunting hiss, set a silent timer, then hide your phone to scare the pants of a trick-or-treater (or your own mom).

Users have their pick of numerous collaboration tools ranging from Google Docs to Slack, but newcomer Pingpad is aiming to do something different by becoming a sort of miniature social network. It also has a speech option for translations, plus, you can draw characters instead of typing, have direct voice-to-voice translations and download language packs for easy offline translation access. It’s no secret that we love TripAdvisor (we’re all part of the same family!), but what you might not know is that the TripAdvisor App has some serious value in the hands of a traveler, too.

Indeed, if you’re using its apps on an iPhone ahead of Apple’s, Google is probably almost as pleased as it would be had you bought an Android handset. Not only can you search for and read reviews on local places to sleep, eat and be merry, but you can also draft your own reviews on-the-go, check out and book hotels and flights, save selected spots to view offline (with maps) and download city guides to view offline as well. This year has caught up with in a few areas, and vice versa: Fingerprint recognition support and a revamped app permissions system are new to Google’s OS, for example, while Apple has added a low battery mode and even a back button (of sorts)—features Android users have been enjoying for quite some time.

It’s all in good fun, but following a signal through your house while watching the screen, and then seeing a ghost emerge from your refrigerator door is actually sort of spooky. Both OSes pack in support for NFC and mobile payment systems to call their own, both take a similar approach to notification pop ups and actions, and so on.

The couple found they had to use multiple apps and services to do so, so they decided to combine them all into one, easy-to-use option and make it available on smartphones. With very few feature differences left, it might be down to the digital assistant apps powering everything to provide the main distinctions in the future. The Reporter app for the iPhone seeks to create this sort of personal information database by asking users to self-report on their own activities, habits and moods.

The $4.59 app quizzes its user several times during the day at random intervals, asking questions such as, “Who are you with?” and “Are you working?” The information is combined with data pulled from the iPhone’s step tracker, microphone, GPS and other functions to build a database. As with all Big Data, there’s some creepiness to it, but Reporter can also prove invaluable to conscientious self-trackers, who can use the information to identify and alter subconscious patterns. The long-term aims of Google Now remain more intriguing: Working behind the scenes to know as much about you as it’s possible to know, anticipating your needs ahead of time, and mining data from other Google apps to make Android as personalized as it possibly can be. Siri, meanwhile, has a contextually aware update of its own, making the app able to recognize what’s on screen and interpret your requests accordingly.

All these apps continue to get minor upgrades that we don’t have time to explore here, but there are very few stand-out differences to talk about—Apple Maps even has public transit information at long last. There are no Apple apps available for Android (though Apple Music is on the way) and very few for Windows, and that means switching to iOS or OS X is much easier than switching away from them. What is noticeable is that even while picking out differences between them becomes harder, so does the process of trying to jump from one to another.
