World Traveler Review
by on December 24, 2010
The one-stop travel app is becoming more popular and we’ve seen a few around – this one even features a spinning globe so you can see which parts of the world are currently in daylight and where is dark.
This app covers all the usual bases – real-time currency exchange for 184 currencies, five-day weather forecasts and time adjusted for various destinations. And, as with some of the other comprehensive travel apps we’ve seen, there’s also a premium version that costs £3.36 a month for a subscription or £25 a year – that gives you up-to-the-minute flight departure information – you’ll get alerts for delays, cancellations and gate changes.
There’s also a digital vault included with this version, so you can store sensitive numbers and details inside. A bit of overkill if you ask us, though some may find it useful. Aside from the extras, the app is a little slow to get around and we were surprised at just how sluggish a lot of it was, even when we were connected to a reasonably fast Wi-Fi network. Regardless, many will find World Traveler a good tool to have with them when moving between countries.
