For part two of our fun, road trip apps, try these on your next driving adventure!
In case you’re tired of hearing the same songs over and over in your car, take a break and listen to a tall tale on your cell phone instead. The Audible app offers over 150,000 fiction and non-fiction audiobooks as well as New York Times bestsellers to listen to while driving down the road.
To all the road warriors, this app is for you. GasBuddy can find nearby gas stations based on your GPS location or you can manually enter a zip code to find stations in a specific area. Prices are provided based on app user input and are almost always current.
The days of cheesy vacation postcards are numbered. PostaGram is a fun app that lets you post traditional postcards to friends and relatives made from your personalized photos and messages right from your phone for 99 cents to any address in the U.S. or $1.99 to countries outside of the U.S. (postage included).
Looking for a good restaurant or bar to try when you’re out of town, or need a good auto repair shop to inspect that “check engine” light on your dash? This app will help you spot the closest location by using your phone’s GPS system and give you online reviews from customers. They also include all kinds of handy information like phone numbers, website addresses, photos and hours of operation.
Oh, Ranger! Parkfinder
This app offers a large database with information on federal and state parks, forests, and public lands that are open to visitors. It also gives you complete directions, opening hours and contact information. Have a specific outdoor activity you enjoy like camping and fishing? You can search and sort by those interests too.
