Google has released a new travel app for Android and iOS, called Google Trips.
Google Trips works by showing you useful information for travel destinations around the world. You can check out the things to do, restaurant options, travel options, hotel reservations, and important information such as health and emergency info, currency, etc. You can even plan your day and the app also gives useful suggestions based on location and timings of places.
The best part is that all of this can be done without data. The app has a download option that you can choose before starting your trip so you have all the data available for offline access.
The app is available for free on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
All these things are great but battery life is still not good enough to enjoy all the things are smartphone can do and keep phone alive for at least 16hrs.
I see a problem in this, in that they can very selectively only put in the businesses & events, etc, who pay an advertising fee to Google for the privilege....
Disappointing (at least for Prague, Czech Republic).
