Have you ever wished that while travelling abroad, you could keep your own phone number AND not have to pay those exorbitantly high roaming rates? Well thanks a Latvian based company who also brought us VIR2SIM, their recently released Roamer app will let you do just that – keep your number while saving a bundle when overseas. Basically, you’ll need an unlocked iPhone/Android phone and a local SIM card from the city you’ll be travelling to. Then after activating the new SIM with the Roamer app, whenever calls are made to your home number, they’ll be re-routed to your new local number. According to Roamer, you can save up to 96% on those pesky roaming rates. For example, if you’re traveling to the UK, €10 credits is good for 250 minutes of incoming calls (€0.04/min). Outgoing calls are slightly more expensive (depending on destination), but the catch here – and this only applies to outgoing calls – is that they require an internet connection, be it via a data plan or WIFI.

According to Roamer’s FAQ, here’s how to use their service:

1) Install Roamer from AppStore or Google Play. The app is FREE! Don’t forget to add calling credits to your Roamer account before departure.

2) Launch Roamer and park your number before departure (Depart Now). It is done by forwarding incoming calls to our service number in your area, which is assigned exclusively to you. Call charges are debited from your Roamer account.

3) Activate local SIM card in Roamer. Buy a SIM card in destination country. Launch Roamer to activate your new SIM card. At the moment of activation you need an Internet connection: WiFi or GPRS or higher. Now, when somebody calls your usual home number, the calls will reach you while you are abroad. To make a call, just launch Roamer, choose the contact, press call and wait for a callback. Only when the call is initiated you need an Internet connection: WiFi or GPRS or higher. The other party will see your usual number as a Caller ID.

The key is to “park” your number before leaving your home country. If you do forget, you can still avoid roaming charges and take advantage of their low roaming rates, the only difference is that Roamer will assign you a new temporary number from your home city (basically you’ll have to give your friends/family/colleagues this new number so they can still call you without having to pay long distance).

As for credit packs, they can be purchased from within the app as an IAP if using an iPhone (paypal for Android users). Denominations are as follows: 9.99, 19.99, 29.99 and 49.99 EUR or US$ 12.99, 25.99, 38.99, 64.99. Check out the video below for more details or head directly to Roamer’s website for rates to all 216 supported countries.

Just Landed for iPhone simplifies picking up friends and family at the airport http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/10/16/just-landed-for-iphone-simplifies-picking-up-friends-and-family-at-the-airport/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/10/16/just-landed-for-iphone-simplifies-picking-up-friends-and-family-at-the-airport/#comments Tue, 16 Oct 2012 16:41:43 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=70288 If you find picking up people from the airport a chore (check flight times, calculate when you should leave home etc.), let Just Landed for iPhone help.

If you find picking up people from the airport a chore (check flight times, calculate when you should leave home etc.), let Just Landed for iPhone help. It’s currently free, well designed and actually works. Unlike a host of other flight tracking apps available for iOS (i.e Flight Track), Just Landed simply tracks inbound flights. Enter the airline code and flight number, and the app will show the landing time, terminal number and approximate driving time based on traffic conditions. And so long as location services is turned on, it’ll even notify you in the background when the the flight has landed and when you should leave for the airport.

Here’s a notification in the locked screen reminding me that the flight will be landing soon, as well as fact that I should be leaving home for the drive over. The cool thing about Just Landed is that it’ll update itself even if you’re on the move. So if your location has changed since you entered the flight info into the app, it’ll also update the corresponding times for when you should start heading out to the airport.

Just Landed is definitely a great little app to for those airport pick ups. And it’s a total bonus that it’s currently free for a limited time.

Just Landed™ Little Details, Just Landed™ - Free

Description

Helps you pick people up at the airport on time.

★★★ Free for a limited time. ★★★

✈ Track inbound flights
✈ Reminds you when it’s time to go to the airport
✈ Uses traffic data when estimating driving time
✈ Notifies you about any flight status changes
✈ Text the person you’re picking up on arrival

Just Landed is the only app that tells you when to go to the airport to pick someone up!

★★★ Featured by Apple multiple times. ★★★

“Seamless airport pickup” – Lifehacker
“Gorgeous UI” – MacLife
“Beautifully designed” – Mashable

Just Landed™ intelligently updates itself using your current location and the latest flight and traffic information. Just go about your day and the app will tell you when it’s time to head for the airport. Never be late to pick someone up again!

*** Concerned about battery life? Read below. ***

Just Landed™ uses a form of background location monitoring called “geofencing” that was introduced in iOS 4. We do this to keep your airport reminders up to date even if you happen to move location while the app is in the background. This form of location monitoring uses dramatically less power than using your phone’s GPS. We’ve made sure that the app does not drain your battery, and if you like, you can also disable the background location monitoring via the app’s settings.

If you’ve ever searched the App Store for travel related apps, it’s likely you’ve come across FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro, two of the consistently top selling iOS apps in the travel category. The pro version ($9.99) is jam packed with features like push notification for flight updates, weather forecast for both arrival and departure airports, and Terminal maps, but the casual (and budget minded) traveller may not require all the premium extras. For those looking for a no frills and free version that provides some basic flight look up functionality, Mobiata has released just that - FlightTrack Free.

 Features of FlightTrack Free include:

  • Completely redesigned interface that integrates the flight details and flight map
  • Real-time departure & arrival info, delays, gate numbers and baggage claim info
  • Zoomable maps with satellite imagery
  • Covers more than 16,000 airports worldwide
  • Full international flight coverage with 1,400 airlines
  • Search and track a single flight at a time

Also notable is that this version has been completely re-designed with a new and attractive UI, which integrates flight details with flight maps. No doubt there are other apps that provide real time departure/ arrival info and don’t cost a cent, but FlightTrack Free is right up there among the best looking freebies I’ve seen so far. Paired with Mobiata’s other free TripDeck – Travel Itinerary Manager app, your next work/personal trip should be well covered.

Here’s a chart showing the features offered between the different versions of FlightTrack.

NAVIGON, formally known as MobileNavigator in the US (TMA Review), has just been updated to 2.0 and showcases some brand new features. Already considered by many as the top navigation app for the iPhone/iPad (myself included), NAVIGON 2.0 now boasts a “fully refined and even easier to use UI” and more importantly, the ability to download only the maps and regions that you actually need (US and North America versions). So instead of having to download/install a 1.8 GB app right off the bat, they weigh in at just 45 mb.

Better yet, the apps are now $20 off, so NAVIGON NA is on sale for $39.99, and the USA and Canada apps are only $29.99. Check out the press release and video demo for more info after the break.

The Next Generation of Onboard Navigation Apps: NAVIGON 2.0 for iPhone Lets You Download Maps by State

Map Management Capabilities Prolong Internal Phone Storage, also Includes an Option for Quarterly Map Updates and a New User Interface

Hamburg, Germany, November 17, 2011-NAVIGON GmbH, a leading provider of mobile phone onboard navigation, today launched the second generation of its award-winning iPhone navigation app, NAVIGON 2.0 for iPhone. The new version completely redefines core elements of iPhone navigation, including a new and unique map management function and an in app purchase option for quarterly map updates, both not found in any other onboard navigation app. Also included is a very simple and intuitive user interface. Existing NAVIGON for iPhone users receive the update to the new version at no cost.

“Navigation systems have become more complex over the last years. We’ve added over 30 new features to our app since it first launched, ranging from traffic and parking information to advanced lane guidance, and our challenge with this new version was to not just add new functionalities but take the overall user experience to the next level,” said Gerhard Mayr, NAVIGON vice-president of worldwide mobile phones and new markets. “We completely rethought the way the app interface is structured and as a result, NAVIGON 2.0 is more intuitive and easier to use than ever before. We’re also the first ones to solve the problem of having to save large amounts of map data on the phone to be independent of a data connection. The new version allows users to pick exactly which maps they need on their iPhone, leaving more room for other apps or photos and videos, for example.”

Map Management and Update Capabilities
NAVIGON 2.0 is the first iPhone onboard navigation app that separates the app from the maps, allowing users to choose which map regions to download to their device. Users who, for example, own the USA version can pick the states they want immediately and download additional regions at a later time[1]. This ability prolongs internal phone storage, since users save only the maps they need on their device. Separating the app and maps also simplifies future updates, as users can update the app (about 40MB) without reinstalling the maps multiple times.

NAVIGON 2.0 is also the first iPhone navigation app to offer quarterly map updates. The FreshMaps service uses trusted, field-verified, and quality-controlled map and points of interest updates from NAVTEQ® to ensure the most accurate data possible. Users can keep their maps accurate and reliable by receiving quarterly updates for a one-time fee. FreshMaps also upgrades the USA or regional versions to the full North America map. NAVIGON’s new Latest Map Guarantee provides customers the latest NAVTEQ map available when purchasing NAVIGON 2.0 for iPhone.

New User Interface
The new user interface is much easier to use, allowing to easily switch between different pages with animated menus and new multi-touch user gestures. It is now possible to access the start screen during navigation to enter a new address without having to first stop the current route. In addition, NAVIGON separated the app options into two menus, differentiating between settings and actions. The new Settings menu allows users to easily customize functions and change preferences, for example when to receive speed warnings, while the new Actions menu lets you use functions that are needed while navigating such as points of interest search and social network postings.

NAVIGON 2.0 for iPhone also has a fresh new look that displays the map in the background even when accessing menu pages. Furthermore, it is very easy to rotate and zoom maps in any direction when in 3D mode and tap points of interest on the map to instantly add them to a route.

Pricing and Availability
The NAVIGON 2.0 upgrade is available at no cost for all existing customers. NAVIGON’s North American apps and selected in app purchases are up to $25 off until November 30, 2011. The promotional offerings are below next to the regular prices.

Oink, brought to you by Kevin Rose (the man behind Digg.com), has landed for iOS. Unlike other social recommendation tools, Oink lets you rate and rank things around you. So instead of simply recommending a local burger joint to your friends, you can snap a photo of that mouth-watering hamburguesa and giving it a rating. The more items you share and rate, the more “cred” you build. This way others with similar tastes/interests will know who to trust.

What you can do with Oink:
• Rate items around you and share with your followers
• See all the cool stuff your friends and other users are Oinking
• Find the best things in town (e.g. Best “Pizza” in Denver)
• Find the items at a place (e.g., Best roller coasters at Six Flags)
• Build “cred” in your areas of interest
• Share your Oink activity on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare

Oink is free to use, though at this point it appears you’ll need to wait for that invite before you can start rating items around you. Video demo after the gap.

Ever find that the current crop of flight tracking apps (say FlightTrack) don’t quite do it for you from an interface point of view, or perhaps they boast features that you’ll never use anyway? If so, Flight Card may very well be right up your alley. Designed with simplicity in mind, Flight Card will provide you with all the pertinent flight info on one page – or basically a “Boarding Pass” as the app calls it. So your flight, terminal and gate numbers, as well as departure times are right at your finger tips. Here are the app features:

– All the info you need in just one ‘card’
– Know everything at the right moment with the help of the different colors and subtitles for each card.
– We track +90.000 flights each day, from +1500 airlines on +16.000 different airports.
– Support for spanish and english language. More to come.

Having played around with Flight Card for the last little while, I can say that it’s hands down the best looking flight tracker I’ve come across thus far. Once you enter your flight info, the boarding pass will be displayed, and it appears you can create as many as your heart desires. Tapping on the screen will toggle between takeoff and landing times/gates/terminal# (shown via up/down arrows), which is a nice touch indeed. While not perfect — the boarding pass doesn’t show date of flight and I’ve noticed that an arrival time for a particular flight that was early by 40 minutes to still being showing the scheduled landing time — Flight Card is off to a very promising start. I’d say that as long as you don’t need all the other features like weather, map routing and push notification found in similar apps, Flight Card is a splendid choice.

Enjoy traveling the world (with your iPhone)? If so, these free iOS TVtrip travel guides should interest you. Created by TVtrip.com (a unique travel website that also shows videos of the interior and exterior of hotels in multple continents), these mobile apps feature offline maps, POIs, editor picks and more.

TVtrip is the next-gen travel guide. TVtrip has selected for you the best activities, hotels and restaurants in Paris. A clear and easy to use guide, ideal for discovering Paris on the weekend! No added filler text— just the essential information and practical tips, clear and to the point!

While the TVtrip guides aren’t as fully featured as the mTrip Travel apps (easily my favorite on the iPhone), the offline maps and points of interests alone should make it worth your while, especially now that they’re free. No official reason as to why or how long these 9 destination apps will be free for, so be sure to pick them up while you still can. Links and video demo after the break…

I’ve tried plenty of travel apps on my iPhone and I keep coming back to the mTrip apps thanks to its impressive feature set. With its Trip Planner mode, users can create their own Itinerary based on trip dates, travel interests, pace intensity and more. Using these preferences, the app will create a custom schedule for you to follow. The offline map can then show you the best route to each destination, either by foot or subway (with specific station/line to take). If you do your fair share of travelling, I highly recommend you download these 11 freebies today and give them a try. Links to the 11 guides and video demo after the gap…

Cambridge, UK – Jasper Apps today is pleased to announce the release of My Vacation 1.1.2 for iPhone and iPod touch on the Apple App Store. My Vacation is an app for travellers which is packed with features, all within the app rather than simply being an interface to a website, with yet another login. Regardless of network coverage the interface makes it simple to capture the memories of a trip, rather than let them be forgotten.

Tony Short, Director of Jasper Apps explained, “The idea behind My Vacation grew during a trip to Jasper, Canada. It was a trip of a lifetime, worth treasuring. We all have fond memories of past vacations, but those memories fade away over time. Once back from vacation, despite best intentions, there is rarely the time or inclination to spend time on a computer to record what happened and to label the photos taken. My Vacation harnesses the iPhone interface, camera, and GPS to encourage users to update a journal during the vacation.

Feature Highlights:

  • Plan activities and what to pack before the vacation
  • Take photos and video during the vacation, together with captions and location data
  • Write or record audio journals for each day
  • Interactive playback of the vacation including maps, photos and journals
  • Upload photos and journals to Facebook, Twitter and email

The release date is perfectly timed for those going on vacation during Easter, or starting to plan for the Summer.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 5.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
My Vacation 1.1.2 is available at an introductory price of $2.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the Apple App Store in the Travel category.
