Travel Mobile Apps For Better Planning: Weather Channel, Goby & Gogobot

1 comment


Gogobot AppPlanning a vacation this year?  The ideal way to start your planning and to map out your itinerary is to download some of the best travel apps available. Having these apps will help to make your vacation smooth and simple. Although there are probably hundreds of great apps available for travelers, the below are just a few of the ones you may really benefit from.

Gogobot has a great mobile app. Camping apps are a necessity, particularly. You will want to know what campgrounds are open and what sort of amenities various RV campgrounds offer. Then you can also find more events and activities that coincide with your interests by getting the Goby app. Obtain a list of the things that appeal to you most, such as hiking trails, theater shows or kid-friendly fun.

This time of year, the weather can take surprising turns. Plan your trip around the forecast with the free Weather Channel app. You can get weather reports which are updated on an hourly basis. Another great weather app is Dark Sky where you will get the immediate forecast in lovely radar visuals (and down to the minute). Don’t get caught in a thunderstorm when you don’t have to!

He spoke Spanish at home, French at school, and English everywhere else. He can get by in Portuguese and Italian, barely survive in Russian and Slovenian, and speak a few other languages.

Francis has an MBA from Harvard Business School and co-founded a successful Silicon Valley company that did robotic vision. He left his technology life to walk across America four times. He has thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail, and in 2007, became the first to do a round-trip on the Continental Divide Trail. In 2009, he was one of the finalists for the California Outdoors Hall of Fame, which "features nominees who are world-renowned for their skills and who have helped inspire thousands of others to take part in the great outdoors."
