We had a great time in Charleston, SC and there were a lot of apps that helped us along the way! Here are the top 5 I used:
1) Road Trip – When I was younger, my family would take long car trips (8+ hours) and I would entertain myself by trying to find all 51 license plates. Now there’s an app for that! Road Trip is an app that keeps track of when and where you spotted the state’s license plate! We did really well and ended up finding THIRTY EIGHT out of 51. Not bad if I do say so myself. See below for screen shots:
5) Waze – I downloaded this app a few months ago but didn’t really get it. Basically, its a GPS/social community for drivers. Your little icon cruises around the road you’re on and you can leave comments regarding cops, accidents, traffic, etc to warn other people. The more you interact, the more points you get. Not really sure what the points get you besides bragging rights… but lemme tell you it’s kind of fun/addicting. The tool is fun but obviously kind of… unsafe? if you’re not the passenger. It could also be helpful when you want to avoid bad traffic and whatnot. See below for screen shots:
Can’t wait to test even more apps for road trips – there are a TON out there!
