Explore The World With This Awesome Apps For Android and iOS Users

Traveling abroad is awesome, don't you think? Seeing new places, meeting new people, learning about a nation's customs – there's nothing quite like it! There's one not-so-minor problem, however. Few of us have the time and/or resources to embark on a journey to a foreign country. 
Thankfully, there's quite a lot that out mobile gadgets can do. They can't teleport us across the ocean, of course, but they can take us on a trip across the world, albeit a virtual one. Below are 10 apps that lets you explore distant lands in a snap of your fingers.

10 Great Apps To Explore The World

1. Trover

Trover's goal is to deliver "The best of everywhere" with its mobile app, designed for on-the-go discovery. Use it to explore beautiful places from all over the world, photographed by the passionate Throver community. You're free to check out what's worth seeing nearby, or to browse images taken at a place of interest on the other side of the planet.

 2. Triposo

Triposo is built to serve as a travel guide to the world. You just pick a country or a major city and a detailed, illustrated guide will be downloaded straight to your device, with places worth seeing pin-pointed on a map. In addition, Triposo provides information on a nation's festivities, culture, staple dishes, and more. One of the app's advantages is that it works offline – useful for travelers with no internet access when abroad.

3. Findery

Browsing photos of distant locations is one thing, and reading a story about them is another. Finder is made for the latter – members of the community leave notes around the world, telling stories about the places they've found on their journeys. Notes are accompanied by images and can be seen by anyone when set to public.

6. Google Earth

Google Earth is one of those must-try applications. It lets you fly around the planet with a swipe of a finger and explore pretty much every mile of it.

Select cities, including San Francisco, Boston, Rome, and others, are recreated in 3D for a stunning "flyover" view.
