Find out why App in the Air is an Editor’s Choice on the App Store. It gives you real-time flight updates, gate changes, airport navigation maps, and tips. You no longer have an excuse to miss your flight or be seen running through an airport frantic to catch your flight again.
The best part is that you will still receive updates offline and won’t incur roaming charges if you’re using the app abroad.
Duolingo is an addictive language learning app that makes learning like a game thanks to its simple yet fun interface. If you want to understand and converse with the locals where you’re on holiday, have Duolingo teach you the language. Each lesson includes a variety of speaking, listening, translation, and multiple choice challenges.
The list of languages that Duolingo offers include Spanish, Italian, German, Swahili, and so much more.

With Citymapper, you’ll have a map you can use to plot a route using any mode of transport the city offers. You’ll even get live updates on delays and road closures. Saving the maps offline is also an option.
- Google Translate
Google Translate translates over 100 languages and quite accurately too! Just type in a phrase and it translates it into whatever language you choose. In Conversation Mode, you can actually talk to someone in a different language with the app translating as you speak! Try camera translation by point your camera at text on signs and the translation appears on your screen. Brilliant!
