We know ‘top 10′, ‘top 5′, ‘best of’ lists are a bit like Marmite. You either love them or hate them. Well here at ASH we’re full of love for the Top 10 List. So we have compiled a category full of the best Top 10 (sometimes more or less…) adventure travel & sports lists.
When travelling, technology is sometimes a lifesaver. And now with web enabled phones, it’s really easy to get travel apps for your iPhone, iPad or smartphone that help point you in the right direction. Some work like modern day maps, others just show you where to find great food.
Travellers are increasingly looking to pick up languages skills and destination advice long before they’ve packed their bags. And there are travel apps for these too.
There’s even an app that turns your phone into a flashlight. And if you like to write as you roll, we’ve sourced a travel app that lets you upload your own destination reviews.
If you are already using an app not featured, let us know and we’ll check it out and add it to our list.
