There’s more to travelling with a smartphone than tossing it into your bag.
101 iPhone Travel Tips, Tricks, Hacks and Apps will teach you how to use your iPhone like a pro in a travel context. (While the book is written for the iPhone, most tips apply equally to the iPad, which is terrific for those thinking of going #iPadOnly.) This book is a compilation of the best tips and tricks I know – and I learned them first-hand, on the go. I road tested over 700 iPhone and Android travel- and productivity-related apps on over 60,000+ km of travel. The results provided a wealth of material for two books about travelling with a smartphone and tablet. On those research trips, I travelled 'mobile only' – with just a smartphone and tablet – using them to complete every technical travel-related task I needed to. That process forced me to understand how to use a mobile device to do things I’d previously done only on a laptop. Many app reviews you read online are tested at the author’s desk, but my field-testing proved which apps and services look great on paper but fail in practice, as many of them do. I also learned many power tips and tricks that I was unaware of – even as a seasoned traveller and iPhone user. I've also worked remotely for over a decade, and so I have spent many hours learning this information through hard, first-hand experience. My aim with this book is to share some of my best tips to save you doing the same. The tips, tricks, and hacks fall into a broad range of categories: • Security • Airports and flights • Currency exchange • Power Google travel hacks • Siri • Time • Conducting online transactions securely • Translation • Email • Battery saving tips • Getting around • Photo tips • Offline apps • Entertainment • Backup • Saving mobile data ….and much more! In particular, the book has many practical tips and tricks for tweaking the settings on your iPhone to get the most out of it in a mobile or travel context. You'll find links to around 50 great travel-related apps and online services. (However, the book is not focused primarily on travel apps.) Some of the tips are lengthy; others are brief. In all cases, they’re designed to be both practical and fun. Tips about saving on phone call charges by using Skype are a dime a dozen, so you won’t find them in my book. Ditto for hints on using TripAdvisor. Instead, 101 iPhone Travel Tips, Tricks, Hacks and Apps focuses on some of the features, applications and services that you probably don’t know about and that will prove useful to you. It’s perfect for travellers (leisure or business), digital nomads and remote workers, as well as all iPhone and iPad users who are looking to master their mobile devices. Regardless of whether you’re a new iPhone user or a pro, you're bound to find useful information in this book that you hadn’t known before. Even though its an inexpensive book, its designed to pay for itself many times over in money you'll save by implementing some of the tips and strategies. Freshly updated for 2017 and iOS 10, it is available at a special price until iPhone Travel Life is released. Priced at just $2.99, you get Kindle Book Lending so you can lend it to a family member or friend for up to 14 days, and free updates to this book for life. You'll never pay for another version of this book. You can find out more about me and my work at www.itravel.life
