When you travel, information is power. So travel smart with the U.S. Traveller iPhone app from GloboTrac.com. This comprehensive iPhone travel app touches on 13 important travel topics for more than 200 countries.
It can take too much time to search for the information you should have before traveling to another country. Sometimes, it’s hard to even know what to look for. That’s why the U.S. Traveller iPhone app is an ideal travel solution for U.S. citizens.
In one central app you can access information specifically about your port of travel. Each country’s section includes: embassy location, country description, entry/exit requirements, crime data, safety & security information, victims of crime, special circumstances, criminal penalties, medical insurance, medical facilities, children’s issues, aviation safety and traffic safety information.
A special country facts area will give you a broad overview of the country’s politics, population, history, economy and more. There are also dedicated tabs for travel warnings and alerts from the government.
Next time you plan on wandering far from home, doing your research will be easy with this awesome app. The U.S. Traveller iPhone app definitely earns points for practical application and a wealth of information.
Layout & Design:
A simple alphabetic approach makes it easy to find your destination in the U.S. Traveller app. Touch the first letter of the country on the right side of the screen for easier navigation.
There are also dedicated bottom tabs to help you access warnings, alerts and app info. The first tab is for the main country list section. Tapping the Countries tab will return you to the last page you were viewing in that section.
If you are on the hunt for information, simple is best. There are no bells or whistles in this app. Just well-organized data, and lots of it. We do wish the U.S. Traveller app sported a search function just for an additional navigation option.
Heads up international travelers. To access data in the U.S. Traveller iPhone app you must have a data connection. The app’s main content is stored online, and only downloaded to your iOS device when you navigate to a specific page.
Pages can be accessed via Wi-Fi or your carrier’s data network (or their global roaming partner’s network). If you cannot get a connection, you may be out of luck. So find out what your data roaming options are, or do your research before you head out of town.
U.S. Traveller can save you time and effort while preparing for a trip outside the United States and it costs just $.99 to download from iTunes. For seasoned travelers this app is a great way to remember all the important travel facts for each country that you visit. For first time travelers it’s an invaluable way to travel smart.
So whether you’re an international man of mystery, or a gal going on a global jaunt for the first time, the U.S. Traveller iPhone app is an exceptional value.
