AppDictions App Review
The U.S. Traveller iPhone app is an indispensible tool for any frequent travelers – especially abroad to potentially unstable locations. Reading like the CIA World Fact Book in your pocket, this robust app lets you view information on any country from a to z.
Country information will provide a comprehensive summary about a particular destination. This includes travel reports, embassy locations, entry requirements, crime reports, medical facility locations and more. There is also a less important tab for country facts. Not all information is available – Turks and Caicos, a future destination of mine, does not contain any country facts, but this is not a major complaint and doesn’t overshadow the most important use for this app: travel safety information.
The tabs at the bottom of the app allow you to view any travel warnings which are issued when there are any “long-term, protracted conditions make a country dangerous or unstable.” The warnings will contain the location, date issued and the State Department warning. The alerts tab is used to inform U.S. citizens and travelers on short-term potential security risks. An example; on October 18th an alert was issued on potential terrorist attacks in India during the Indian holiday season.
GloboTrac.com has done a great job compiling all of this useful information, making the U.S. Traveller iPhone app a must have for the frequent overseas traveler.
