BATON ROUGE, LA. (NBC33) — The Holiday season is one of the most popular times of the year to travel. With smartphones and iPads becoming our essential travel companion, NBC33 has researched some Apps that will help you navigate through this season with ease.
GasBuddy is one of the most popular Apps downloaded on the iPhone. The App is free and helps you locate gas stations near you along with the gas prices at each station. Also, if you enter prices for other customers to view, you can earn points towards prize give-away entries.
While traveling to your Holiday destination, Yelp can help you find places to eat, shop, drink, or relax. The free App also gives you customer reviews and photos.
If flying is more your taste, Kayak  will help you find cheap flights, hotels, and rental cars. This App, which is also free, allows you to locate and make reservations on your smartphone along with read customer reviews.
Free WiFi Finder by iVanya helps you find spots around town in which free WiFi is available. The best part is, you don't have to be connected to the internet to find areas with free WiFi. The hotspots are automatically stored on your phone when you download the App.
