It is my belief that the best time to go on a winter trip is when everybody has about had it with winter trips. I'm talking about two weeks after the holidays, when all the hustle and bustle of the airports and highway traffic has been tamed by the fact that no one has any energy--or any money--to go anywhere.
So I'm out of here with my iPad, iPod touch and trusty MacBook Pro. Here are a few free apps I fired up for this occasion. I'll see you guys when I get back. Hopefully I have a tan.
It's holiday time and you know what that means--legions of families and singletons everywhere traveling back to their home bases for some tasty Turkey, and maybe even to receive a present or two. Of course, traveling around the country may also mean a whirlwind of headaches and missed sleep. But fear not, because this year could really change--all you have to do is enlist the help of your trust iOS device. Well, that is, as long as you're in an area where there's some radical reception and strong WiFi. We compiled a list of some of the helpful free travel apps and services out there that'll help you get to your gate on time and keep your plans in order.
