Let’s not go into too much detail here…if you own a Lumia I’m sure you are aware of how well the maps perform, and you may have even bought the phone specifically because of that fact. It’s safe to say that there isn’t much use for the other solutions available in the marketplace!
In a nutshell: Search for and book hotels across the globe
This app is a great example of what can be done within Metro, it’s swift, stylish and intuitive. When you don’t know what’s around you (which is most probably the case when you are traveling) you can search 80,000 hotels and book a room from the app too.
This app substitutes all utility and replaces it with fun. Point your camera into the night’s sky and the screen will display constellations, planets or deep space objects in quite some detail. This one is great for when you’re out in the wilderness!
In a nutshell: Translate languages with your Lumia
A must have when you’re visiting a foreign country. Translator lets you use your camera to translate text, voice recognition for speech and text input via keyboard for text. One really nice thing is that you can download phrase books so you can translate things without a network connection. #Win
