10 apps I downloaded for #SCMS2015

I like to prep for a trip by downloading a bunch of apps that are specific to my destination. Here’s a list of the apps I downloaded for #SCMS2015 in Montreal. I haven’t tried them in action yet, because I’m not in Montreal, but I did some scanning through them to assess whether or not they’re useful. They’re all for iPhone.

MAPS and GUIDES

There are a few different METRO maps, but this app here allows you to map routes. This “Map and Walks” app is a little dorky, but I did find some places I’d like to visit while scanning through it.

This guide has social media, but you need in-app purchases to make it fully functional. The next two are official tourism sites: official sites always have useful info.

CULTURE and LOCATIVE MEDIA

FRANCAIS

Je n’ai pas etudier le francais depuis 20 ans. So, I figured this would be handy. It cracks me up that one of the phrases it will auto-speak for you is:

“Ces drouges ne sont pas a moi!”

Add apps that you think might be useful in the comments! A bientot!
