Let Your iPhone Help You Plan Your Next Trip to Spain

iphoneappBringing along multiple guidebooks and maps, internet printouts, and language phrasebooks is so old-school, at least if you’re one of the many iPhone devotees who uses the device for everything from ordering local takeout and updating your social networks to figuring out the name of a song you like, or even making sure that picture you just hung is level (yeah, there’s an app for that). But did you know your iPhone can help travel better too?

If you’re planning a trip to Spain, be sure to check out our guide to iPhone apps for Spain. There are apps (many of which are under $1.99 and don’t require wireless access to use) with maps of the city or country so you’ll never be lost, apps with city guides so you’ll never be without a recommendation for a great restaurant in Barcelona or cheap hotels in Madrid, apps that fill you in on the history of a place and give you tips on the local culture so you’ll always be informed, and more.

There are apps that can help you navigate by subway or on foot, apps that help you with your Spanish translation, and even apps that will do the talking for you. Unfortunately there are no apps that make your airfare to Spain 50% cheaper….but I suppose technology can’t do everything.
