When venturing out into the vast, unknown world (or as most people call it; going on vacation) it is always a good idea to have a handbook, so you know a bit about what to do and where to go. At times though, those bulky travel books can be a bit of a pain to carry around and awkward to flick through the pages trying to find what you’re looking for. That is where SpotWorld comes in. Spotworld has all of the information of thousands of books and much more.
Spotworld is pack with features. For one, it automatically finds your location and picks out attractions near you, and even tells you how popular they are and how much they cost. The popularity is based on how many people using SpotWorld have been there. There is even a great feature that allows you to check in using FaceBook. Spotworld provides you with an impressive map for determining the location of each POI (though on the list view it gives you a distance in miles) and you can switch between a standard map and hybrid – very handy.
Add the ability to search for destinations before you go and you have SpotWorld – the ultimate travel guide!
SpotWorld is a free, social travel guide of the entire world. Discover and learn about the best spots to visit in any destination and find cool, community-generated itineraries. You can also track and share your travel experiences in a fun way.

A handy tool for creating itineraries quickly and keeping them in the palm of your hand.

I wish I’d had SpotWorld on a recent trip to New York City. It would have come in handy. It’s worth adding to your arsenal of iPhone travel apps.
