  1. I use TaxiSelect app (http://www.taxiselect.com) and I would recommend it to anyone.
    It works everywhere in the world, so far they don’t have taxi partners in every city but you can report it and they will add your area soon.
    The best thing about this app is that you don’t have to call, taxi company will contact you!
    That’s even better than booking a taxi online – when I get a call I can be sure they have accepted the order.

  2. Thanks for these tips. Will be looking at some of the apps mentioned in here the next time I’m heading for a trip abroad. Anyway, I have my own share of favored travel apps. The most recent I’ve downloaded is “25 things to do in Amsterdam.” Well, it’s not that extensive compared to the ones mentioned in here, since it is intended for a specific destination which is Amsterdam, but what I liked the most about it is that it’s a good travel companion. Helped me a lot in finding my way around Amsterdam because of the map that works offline. It also lists 25 of the best places of interest to visit in the city, so I didn’t had a hard time planning my itinerary since the said application has already compiled it for me. The app kept me sane the whole time I was in Amsterdam. Others should give it a try, especially if they are going to Amsterdam. Check the app here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id409760132?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 . Happy travels everyone!

  3. There is an other useful iPhone app to help you to get around when you go to China. It is called Taxi-Book which gives you the English-Chinese translation of the address you want to go. You just need to show him the address displayed on the screen or use the inbuilt text-to-speech function to tell the Taxi driver where to go and he knows your destination without hassle.
