The 5 Best Apps to Use While Traveling with Kids
Travelling with kids can be fun yet challenging. For this upcoming holiday weekend, we have compiled a list of apps and accessories that are helpful for parents and entertaining for kids. Whether flying long distance or driving to grandma’s house, be sure to download and pack the items below.

The 5 Best Apps to Use While Traveling with Kids

Roadtrip Bingo
iOS + Android (free)
Roadtrip Bingo allows kids to check off things they spot while on a trip. Similar to the old licence plate spotting game, this app also includes options for airplane travel as well.


FamilyTime Dashboard
iOS + Android (free)
Kids have a tendency to wander off. Better to be safe than sorry, and download FamilyTime Dashboard. Prior to leaving the house, install the app on your mobile device and their phones or tablets. The app safely monitors your child’s location, as well as any Internet or smartphone activity.


GetBeen
iOS (free)
Rather than trusting on an unreliable restaurant reviews in unfamiliar cities, GetBeen to see your friend’s restaurant, hotel, and amusement kid-friendly suggestions on all of your travels! Using GetBeen you can explore what’s nearby, and discover what your friends recommend, and share your experiences. No more frantic Facebook statuses asking for restaurant recommendations in the middle of nowhere, with GetBeen you'd have your friends opinions at your fingertips.


TravelOn Hand Soap Sheets
$10.00
These pocket-sized biodegradable sheets are a must-have when traveling with children. Easier to carry than a bar of soap, these paper-thin soap sheets dissolve almost instantly in water, giving you a handful of cleansing suds anywhere. TSA compliant and biodegradable, the palm-size container holds 50 sheets. You can purchase them HERE.


Here WeGo
iOS + Android (free)
Toddlers can be the most impatient road trip buddies ever. Avoid hearing the common phrase “are we there yet” by downloading Here WeGo. Rather than wasting all your data getting directions to your travel destination, this app provides detailed turn-by-turn directions for over 100 different countries that you can download and access offline, making it a great app to help avoid data fees. Here WeGo also offers directions for various forms of transportation, including car, bike or public transportation and updates prices, traffic conditions, where to park, for any drive.

Those are some interesting apps I have not yet heard about. Offline maps are great for travel. No matter what the app, if it gives you an option to view maps offline that is awesome. Also like the Roadtrip Bingo, will be looking into it

These are great tips. I did not know about the soap sheets. They would be very handy even when going shopping. In like the Road trip Bingo and Family Time Dashboard apps the most.
