Appsolute Must: Travel and Deals Apps
From great travel apps to fabulous finds on your phone, today's apps are for people on the go. 7's Craig Stevens is here now with the latest "Appsolute Must" downloads.
WSVN -- Keeping track of family and friends is hard when they're on the road, but things just got easier.
"Onmaway" is a brand-new app that helps family and friends track your trip.
Just enter the phone numbers or e-mails of the people you want to share your trip with. Then, your phone will send them updates for where you are.
You control how often updates are sent. You can even share your trip updates on Facebook or Twitter.
Who doesn't want to find great deals when they're traveling? There's an app for that, too.
"AAA Discounts" uses your phone's GPS to find nearby businesses offering deals for AAA members.
You can find discounts on hotels, restaurants and more. It will even show you how to get there.
And speaking of deals, now, there's a local swap shop right on your phone.
"Zaarly" is like a digital bulletin board. It lets you post what you want, when you want it, and how much you'll pay.
Find tickets to a sold-out concert, a great lawn service, new or used cars, just about anything.
"Zaarly" connects you in eight languages to all the right people who can help you out.
Craig Stevens: "Zaarly and AAA Discounts are free. Onmaway costs $1.99."
