Going on vacation is always fun, but sometimes the most difficult part is planning what you’re going to do while you’re away.
Researching destinations and figuring out how to get there can be troublesome, but if you use the right tools you can save a lot of time and potentially discover cool places you wouldn’t otherwise know about.
Vacation Planning – City Guide is a terrific brand-new app that’s your all-in-one travel planning tool.
The app, by Andev, includes many features such as destination discovery, travel accommodation options, and much more.
Concept and Functionality
We’ve reviewed plenty of travel apps here on Android Apps Review, so the first thing I thought of while reviewing Vacation Planning is that the app really needs to have something special in order to make it stand out. That “something special” is a unique and visually appealing layout that not only makes trip planning easy, but also fun.
In order to use the app you must search for a destination city. Once you’ve selected your city of choice, Vacation Planning displays a comprehensive grid of options where you can explore categories such as concerts, restaurants, attractions, and more.
Tapping on each of the items will reveal a list of different things you can see and do, all provided by leading sources of information such as Foursquare.
Without a doubt, Vacation Planning makes travel planning fun.
The unique layout encourages users to explore everything that the app offers, especially all of the different categories. You’re likely to find something to do or somewhere to go just by tapping on different squares.
Vacation Planning offers tons of features for all of your planning needs, including links to travel and accommodation sites.
The app doesn’t let you directly search for hotels and flights using a special service, but instead links to third-party search sites where you can research and book travel.
Another cool feature of Vacation Planning is the ability to switch between the imperial and metric system of measurement, allowing you to view measurements such as temperature in your preferred units.
This is especially helpful because the app shows weather data for your selected destination, as well as offers the ability to choose a preferred search radius for events and attractions.
Vacation Planning can be downloaded from Google Play for free and doesn’t include ads, in-app purchases, or anything else.
When it comes to planning a vacation, Vacation Planning is definitely an app you should consider checking out. Even if you’re not thinking of going anywhere anytime soon, it’s still a cool way to explore different cities around the world.
Vacation Planning – City Guide requires Android version 4.1+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
