It is certainly not your average city guide.

Gogobot also connects you with your friends and offers up travel advice and links to real-time maps, pictures, pricing and descriptions. Available on: Android, iOS
While traveling, nothing says, “thinking-of-you” like a post card for your family and friends. At the intersection of technology and tradition is Postagram, a mobile app that turns your photos into postcards you can mail from your phone! Available on: Android, iOS
In Taipei, most people speak Mandarin Chinese so having a pocket-size interpretation tool like Google Translate is a necessity. The app rapidly translates entire paragraphs of spoken word. Say a phrase in English and Google Translate will help you communicate when you are on the go. Available on: Android, iOS

Thankfully a colleague introduced me to WayGo, a visual translation too
From menus at restaurants to appliances WayGo can make life a heck of a lot easier when travelling abroad.
Wi-Fi Finder is a must-have app, reviewers at CNET concluded.
Quickly and easily find both free and paid Wi-Fi when you travel with the JiWire Wi-Fi Finder app.
