With the help of Android Smartphones these days, travelling around Malaysia is so easy. There are apps for mostly every need but you just need to look. Below is are a few of my favourite app for Travelling.
1. Waze – Free Navigation App
As I enjoy getting around Malaysia by car as Malaysian highways and roads are in good condition, I use this app called Waze to be able to find the way to my vacation spot. A pal encouraged me to use Waze one day after we were being discussing navigation applications intended for android. I normally use Google Maps, however many roads in Malaysia is not up to date in Google. I tried Waze and now its my travelling companion. Waze is a really awesome GPS NAVIGATION app. Waze is a social based app in which Waze users or Wazers as they are generally known can contribute traffic and other road data. Wazers could quickly utilize its on screen icons to be able to document road mishaps, police road blocks, traffic jams, hazards or even accidents. So if you are driving along your route, you will get a heads up on whats ahead.The icons are actually very easy to use while you are driving. As this is a social app, wazers contribute to the making of maps by just pushing the paving icon. Therefore you have huge amounts of people assisting in developing the map. So maps are generally updated instantly. It’s a really helpful app to possess in addition you don’t have to purchase a Garmin. The sole problem so far that I face while using this app, is that there are some location that cannot be located. So what I is usually do is look up in Google Maps the location. Search for any kind of attraction close by. I tried this particular method when we needed to source an alternative path to my Auntie’s house in Alor Gajah. I normally travel by the highway but this time I wanted to avoid the highway. Waze got me there and its estimate time of arrival is also quite accurate. I can go on and on about this great app, but it will take this whole blog. Just click on its website to find out more. www.waze.com
2. Google Maps – Route Planner App
This is a truly helpful app in situations when you want to look for a destination. Although it doesn’t have voice navigation like Waze, the particular “get direction” do help. Google Maps is a web mapping service application and technology provided by Google, free. It offers street maps, a route planner for traveling by foot, car, or public transport and an urban business locator for numerous countries around the world. I use this app when I am not able to find some location on Waze. There are times when there are some destination you cannot locate on Waze. You can download this app from the Google Website.
3. Muslim Pro -Islamic App As I like travelling, an accurate prayer time for me is important. For us Muslims, we pray five times a day at prescribed conditions, a prescribed procedure, and prescribed times. Therefore an app like this is very important to us. Apart from prayer times the Muslim Pro App features the full Quran with Arabic scripts, phonetics, translations and audio recitations as well as a Qibla locator, an Islamic Hijri calendar, a map of halal restaurants around your location and Mosques within your location.

Truly Malaysia – Malaysia Guide App Going for vacation in a new place, you will require a guide book or some sort. You can buy a book or even surf the internet. Or the lastest way with the help of Google Playstore you can download an app on your smartphone. One such app that i have usefull in my Travels in Malaysia is the Truly Asia App. You can download this app from the Google Playstore.
