You can say that you read only paper books, but you cannot deny the fact that taking Kindle on vacation is easier than carrying ten books in a backpack. You can download the Kindle application to your iPhone or Android.
Amazon Kindle is the most popular e-book reader in the world. First of all, because of its low price, caused by subsidizing Amazon, earning primarily on selling books for Kindle. However, thanks to its pricing policy, Kindle became popular even where the English-language library is not relevant.
Probably everyone has heard about this application, but not everyone knows that it has one great feature: translating in real time and offline. Load the language you need, and point the camera at the text you need to translate. A couple of seconds and the translation is ready.
Are you going to travel a lot and to stop at different hotels?
The new TripIt application will save all the necessary data and will remind you at the right time about the need to confirm the booking at the hotel or to register for the flight. For those, who are having a business trip, the application will become an irreplaceable assistant. You need to specify the place and date of the trip and you will get a form, where you can make a fairly detailed plan for a business trip or vacation. Filling the gaps will not take much time. If you are travelling by air, then you just need to enter the name of the airline and the flight number, and the other data (arrival /departure time, airports) would be inserted by the application automatically. If necessary, the application can show you the best way from the station/airport to your destination, counting the distance and the estimated time along the way. Further, you need to enter the data about the booked hotel: address, phone, time of registration. In addition, the service allows you to add business meetings and various entertainment activities (with a list of participants, the exact date, time and venue), articles, notes and much more. As a result, you get a detailed trip plan, which you can control directly from your mobile device.
