50 FREE travel apps, that’s a lot of apps! Our personal favorites are WAZE, which allowed a Nashville Geek to navigate through LA traffic like she was a local, Bookit, for their amazing vacation deals that saved us money for extra shopping, and Foursquare, which lets every Geek know what’s best on the menu.
