I hate packing, don’t you? I usually end up putting it off until literally an hour or two before I’m due to leave, run around the house frantically dumping items into a suitcase, and spend the first part of my trip worrying that I have forgotten something.

This year, I am determined to be more organized, and have enlisted the help of Packing Pro to ensure that I do not forget my passport, toothbrush, or anything else for that matter. Hit the jump to read more.


It’s that time of year. When we say goodbye to four years of hard work and newfound friends and forge ahead to “make something of ourselves.” But how can you be expected to make it in the “real world” without a solid collection of apps for this new season of life?

That’s why I’ve put together a list of the top 10 iPad apps recent graduates need. This list covers everything from finding a job to getting a new apartment to dropping the freshman 15 (that hung on long past freshman year). So let’s get started!


With the recent trend in the App Store it is surprising to see a weather app which is not following the bandwagon by making the simplest one possible. Seasonality Go breaks this trend by trying to become your weather power station. Instead of finding simple colors with a sliver of weather data and no real grasp of weather predictability, Seasonality Go provides a complete weather solution showcasing weather prediction with current weather conditions. When looking at weather apps there are always questions such as the reliability of the app and its weather data. Keep reading on to see how Seasonality Go stacked up in these crucial features.

Hipmunk is a young start-up specializing in the travel industry. The company launched in 2010 and has been concentrating on building Web and Mobile applications to help its users find and book flights and hotels. Hipmunk offers a pretty solid web platform, but also applications for iOS and Android.

The start-up has recently raised $15 million in a series B round of funding, which rises its total amount of funding to $20 million. Its CEO, Adam Goldstein, wants to focus the company efforts on building tools and products related to the travel industry.

Hipmunk is free to use. The company makes money once you book a flight or a night in a hotel. In this post, we’ll go through a deep review of Hipmunk for the iPad and learn how to use it. (more…)

When I married a woman who is an incredible cook and loves to bake, I knew I had hit the jackpot. Unfortunately, what I didn’t realize is that also meant I was now obligated to watch hours of programming on the Food Network. In the last five years I’ve seen so much Paula Deen my arteries are clogged just from watching, and I’ve learned that you can make literally anything into a food competition with ingredients I’ve never even heard of (what exactly is “jaggery” anyway?).

Well, if you’re a foodie like my wife who loves watching the Food Network then you might interested in their new app, Food Network On the Road. The question now is does it live up to the promise of helping you find all the places where the stars eat when you’re on the road? Read on to find out. (more…)

Flying can be a stressful experience, with the potential for disrupted travel due to delays and/or cancellations and incredibly busy airports don’t help to ease the experience. Fortunately, if you’re travelling with an iPad in tow, you can utilise it with the fantastic app we’re going to cover today.

Flight+ is a beautiful flight tracking application that puts a whole world (quite literally) of airline and airport information into your hands, tracking flights in real time and offering up information on both airlines and airports. You can even utilise iCloud to automatically synchronise flight information between multiple devices, so you’re always up-to-date on whatever device you’re using.


Perhaps it’s a little early to put this question to the fine readers of iPad.AppStorm, but the sun is shining in England and it certainly feels like summer is upon us.

I’d like to know whether you’re intending to take your trusty iPad on holiday with you?

In my opinion the iPad is a superb travelling companion and I certainly wouldn’t leave home without it stocked full of movies and interesting articles to read, but perhaps you’re of a different persuasion. I can certainly see how certain holidays might make the iPad less useful – it’s powers are lessened if you’re on the beach a lot and it might be a bit risky to take it back-packing…

Nonetheless, I can see the merits of taking the iPad along for travelling time alone – some airlines have started giving fully-stocked iPads out to first-class passengers to use instead of the built-in multimedia system!

What kind of holiday will you be taking this year, and where will the iPad fit in? Let me know in the comments!

The internet provides an amazing way to communicate with people all over the world, for any purpose that you’d like. Sometimes that’s easy to forget when you spend so much time doing other stuff like watching cat videos. Take traveling as an example, doing a quick search on the web about a foreign strange place that you’d like to visit will give you a ton of useful information that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

The iPad is a particularly amazing device to travel with, because of its portability and all the things it can do, like have worldwide internet connectivity with 3G and give you access to updated maps all over the world. That’s why today we’re bringing you an app that can help you connect with locals from all over the world and get questions answered regarding their area, right on your iPad. It’s called Ask A Nomad. Are you interested?


There are many ways to explore the world. Some folks prefer to go by plane, while others would rather to take cruises or stowaway on ships. These are usually the desired means of transportation for if you wish to travel across the pond, so to speak.

On the other hand, if you want to visit majestic places in your own homeland, you’ll usually take a plane, car, bus, or train to get there. The one element of the travel equation that’s missing is the map. All explorers carry a map with them, but things have changed a lot since the days of paper and compasses. In this day and age explorers prefer to take along a smartphone that has all of the tools they’ll need. The only problem with this solution is the device’s small screen, which poses a limitation if you’re looking to use it as a replacement for your map. This is where the new iPad app Stuck on Earth enters the scene.

Stuck in Earth is a free app invented by the renowned HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff. The app’s name is modeled on his photography blog, Stuck in Customs. Ratcliff designed the app to help photographers and explorers find the prime spot to take a photo while on their travels. It works like a traditional map, except with community involvement and photo sharing that spreads the word if there’s a great spot somewhere near where you’ll be traveling. If you love to explore the great abyss and take photos while doing so, then read on to discover an app that will assist you with your endeavors.
