    I guess Google Maps is the great navigation app of all time, with robust set of features related to a location's information. Google Local Guides has definitely improved the Google Maps experience.

    When on the go, and in an area without your native tongue speakers, google translate is a must for simple phrases.

    As a nomad, you'll always be meeting very interesting people who are always on the road (like you!) so it gets hard to strengthen your relationships. Nomo FOMO allows you to keep up with all of their travel and get notified when you'll be in the same place again so you can meet up. You can also see who's been to the places you're going to so you can get recommendations! And if you don't know where to go next, you can use the map or feed to see who you could fly off to meet with next.

  14. Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
