Apps For Traveling to Your Next Contract Assignment

Did you just take a contract position in another city you know nothing about?  Do you now have to drive hundreds of miles to a strange area to work for a few months or more?  Why not make the journey to get there a little more fun?

Instead of just getting in your car and driving, plan a little extra time and see the sights along the way, eat at some out of the way restaurant and even plan some things to do on your days off once you get there.

You no longer have to rely on roadside signs to tell you what you could eat at an upcoming exit…now there’s an app for that!  Don’t get caught in a speed trap, yep there’s an app for that too!  Want to see the world’s largest ball of yarn…you guessed it, there’s an app for that!

Below are some of the many apps out there for your smartphone to help make your trip, and destination, a little more fun then just going to work.  Download some today and start your adventure!
