Five Tips for Traveling With Your Smartphone

Spring has set in and summer is almost here! As families and friends pack for vacation there’s one important device that every traveler needs to bring: a smartphone. From helpful privacy applications to the camera function, a smartphone can save travelers time, money and headaches. As the original mobile caller ID developer, Privus Mobile has provided smartphone users across the world with top-of-the-line mobile security applications for more than five years. Now, as we approach travel season Privus Mobile is offering five tips to remember when traveling with your smartphone. 

Itinerary: Travelers who are flying should always have their itinerary downloaded on their phone. Most airlines also have smartphone applications that allow travelers to check in to their flight, monitor arrival and departure times and watch for cancellations.

Budget: Traveling expenses can add up quickly, so it’s important to keep track of your vacation budget. There are multiple applications on the market that can keep travelers on budget, including Money Book, Mint or EasyMoney. All three allow travelers to allocate funds based on categories like food, clothing, activities and gas.

Battery Power: From car chargers to adapters, smartphones need access to power, especially when being heavily used! Having a full battery will keep travelers on route, on time and on top of plans.

Directions: Whether it’s directions to the hotel or local restaurants, smartphones can provide driving directions, reviews, suggestions and check-in opportunities. Travelers who want to take advantage of public transportation can download BusTime or Go To There. Many cities also have specific applications that update the location of buses, metros and subways in real time.

Memory Making: Pictures capture memories of a vacation long after it’s over, so take plenty! If you’re feeling creative, try applications like Instagram or PicFrame. Want to share a photo with a co-worker or family member? Both applications have social capabilities so snap away!

Travelers can use these five tips, along with a variety of other helpful applications like Privus Mobile’s line of caller ID applications to keep them safe while traveling.
