Traveling soon? Don’t forget to download these apps

One of the great things about technology these days is that most devices are equipped with capabilities that allow travelers to use them virtually anywhere around the globe. Whether you're vacationing in Singapore with your family or in Paris with your partner, you can rest assured that your mobile device, tablet or laptop will come in handy at some point during your trip.

The Huffington Post recently touched on the universality and usefulness of these devices, and shared some apps that globetrotters should consider downloading next time they are in a new city. Those that made the list included:

1) LocalEats
When you're in a foreign city, one of the things you need to consider is where to eat. Sure, you could always look in a travel book to see what the authors suggest, but why not follow the advice of local food critics? LocalEats will tell you where everyone go and can find you a dining establishment based on what you're in the mood for.

2) Goby
One of the great things about taking a trip is taking in the local culture. This app will assist you in locating everything from open-air markets to fairs and festivals that will keep you occupied during your travels.

3) Google Translate
There's no doubt it: when you're in a city that speaks a language you don't know, it can be quite frustrating. Google Translate will break the language barrier for you by translating a word or phrase for you in a matter of seconds so you can communicate with locals.

While those can all be quite useful, an absolute must-have for anyone traveling in a major city is the Hermes Worldwide app. With the touch of a button, you can book luxury transportation in more than 450 cities around the globe using an ease-to-use interface.
