Do you know about Hopper? It is an app available for both iPhones and Android phones, and it does a great job of finding low-priced fares and also of predicting if airfares will increase or decrease between when you researched fares and when you plan to travel. It’s not a website, though. It’s only an app.

IHG Translator App: 12 Languages, 2,000 Phrases, and 10,000 Words (Free for IHG Platinum Elite Members)
(Hat Tip to Paul for alerting me of the app)
IHG recently introduced their IHG Translator App and I spent about 30 minutes playing around with the features. I selected French from the 12 available languages and a pop-up message told me to wait approximately 3 minutes for all the French language files to download. After downloading the language files, I was able to view the various phrase categories. The categories are very realistic (such as “yes,” “no,” and “where is the bathroom?”). The app supports formal, casual, slang, and crazy phrases (such as “see you later alligator” as a crazy way to say “goodbye”). Once you see the phrase you want to say or hear, click the slow or fast speaker icon and the app will pronounce the phrase for you. If you still are unable to understand the phrase, you can click the phonetic icon and see the English pronunciation of the phrase. The app is definitely well made and very intuitive to use. I am excited to try the app next time I travel internationally. Continue reading
