It features the ability to translate virtually any language into almost any other language. In addition to that, there is a camera feature that lets you point your phone at a sign or a menu to get an instant translation. But most useful of all are Translate’s cue cards: tap out a phrase in your language, hit translate, turn the phone sideways and it will display a full-screen translation for someone to read.

Uber and other ride sharing apps 

Don’t be that guy who hires a car before he even leaves his country or home. Each country has a hailing app and Uber is now popular across the world hence making it easy for tourists to move around. Countries that have their own ride services, they are usually reasonably priced although surge charging does make things worse sometimes. People all over the world use these services and most of them require a background check before hiring drivers.
