Here you can find a video review of the tripAdvisor android app.

We hope this app will be useful to make smart choices and save money on your next trip to Spain. And don’t forget!! it doesn’t work without internet but thankfully we have tripNETer.

tripNETer and tripAdvisor are really a time and money saver combination.


tripadvisor the best travel app to use when you travel to Spain

2 Apr

If you are coming to Spain we recommend you to download to your Iphone, android, Ipad or table Tripadvisor that is the world’s largest travel site and was downloaded an average of 25 times per minute in January 2012 and after Google Earth, is the world’s most downloaded travel app,

TripAdvisor is also available in 20 languages, making TripAdvisor the global go-to resource for mobile travel planning.

TripAdvisor also have a new HTML5 cross-platform app for ipad and android available in the Android market and the Apple App store. This is a free app that features a clean and simple interface, making easy the search for travelers, letting them access the millions of reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor. with this app and the GPS on the mobile device the travelers can see all the places nearby and compare prices and reviews also can see a list of top ranked hotels, restaurants, attractions etc.

Also over 50 percent of travelers intend to use their phones to find hotels, attractions and restaurants with Near Me Now where travelers can quickly determine what hotels, restaurants, and attractions are nearby their current location.

Anyhow there is a problem because this app needs data connection and the roaming is always really expensive when you come to Spain, but thankfully you can find mobile Internet solutions like tripNETer that offers a affordable and portable Internet solution for travelers in Spain, if you want to know more visit. www.tripNETer.com

It is wrong when you see people turning off the roaming at the airport before leaving the country, they would like to continue using their phones, tablets, PCs  but they will not do so if prices are this disproportionately high.

There is a great article in PC Pro, “40GB of data Costs the Same as a house” showing that the 40GB of data that typically is included in most of the home connectivity packages in Europe (unlimited broadband connection) can reach the cost of a luxury yacht or a house with three bedrooms if we download this same amount of data abroad with operators like Virgin Mobile or O2 for the UK costumers (anyhow for Germans, French, Americans or Japanese Roaming cost is quite similar).
