In this age, the need for internet has become inevitable. We like in a time where everything is Instagrammable and being a digital nomad is the ultimate career. This free app, available for iOS devices, is a crowdsourced tool that helps you find all the surrounding Wi-Fi spots. Not just that, but it can sometimes provide you with passwords for some security-protected networks.

Hotel reservations, flight tickets, you name it! The app will map out everything for you with its customizable day plans. The good news is that it’s also available offline, so you can easily access your information whenever you need to!
Since you’d be out all day, you can’t really have any control over nature calls, and finding a public restroom, especially a clean one, is not an easy task. Arabs already suffer from the unavailability of our beloved ‘Shatafas’ in a lot of countries, so at least finding a clean toilet would not be a lot to ask for.

Instead of jotting out a checklist of the things you need to pack, why not download an app that customizes your packing list for you? All you need to do is pick the destination, length of stay, gender, and so forth. You can also add extra key features; for instance, if you’re a mommy traveling with a baby, that will be integrated with the list.
