Quickly Find the Best Travel Apps Available from the App Store

Quickly Find the Best Travel Apps Available from the App Store

To search for potentially useful apps for business travel, visit the App Store via iTunes. At the top of the screen, tap the "iPhone" or "iPad" icon, depending on which device you'll be using. Click on the "App Store" header at the top of the iTunes screen to reveal a listing of popular app categories; then select "Travel."

Or if you know specifically what app you're looking for, or you want to search for an app based on a keyword search, while visiting the App Store, enter your keywords or search phrase in the upper-right corner of the screen.

The App Store is also readily available directly from your iPhone or iPad. From the device's Home Screen, tap the App Store icon. At the bottom of the screen, you'll find five command icons that allow you to learn about "Featured" apps, search for apps based on "Category" (such as Business, Productivity, News, Weather, Travel, or Entertainment), view a list of the current "Top 25" apps, "Search" for apps based on keyword or by title, or find and download updates to your existing apps if they're available, by tapping the "Updates" icon.

Once you set up the App Store app once with your iTunes account and or credit card information, you can purchase and download apps in minutes, directly from your device, typically using a 3G web connection (although apps that are composed of very large files sometimes require a Wi-Fi connection if you're downloading it directly to your device, as opposed to using iTunes from your PC or Mac).

As you're planning your next business trip, determine what travel-related features and functions would be useful to have on your iPhone or iPad, and then visit the App Store to find relevant apps to download and install before your departure or during your trip.
