Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Summer officially started today, and in honor of that News 19 is focusing on travel apps all week for the App Of The Day.
Say the whole family loaded up really early to head to the airport in Charlotte to start your vacation. When you get there the kids are hungry, and if you've never been there how do you know what dining choices are good? There's an app for that - plus a whole lot more.
Gate Guru as named one of the top five travel apps by CNN for a good reason: it gives you every terminal inside every major airport in the u.s. at your fingertips.
It also updates you real-time if your flight has been delayed.
Gate guru lists places to eat and shop, along with terminal maps so you can get where you need to go.
It's free and available for Android and iPhones.
My second app today is a great one if you always forget where you park at the airport or mall.
MyCar Locator is a free app for Droid and iPhones, and with one push of a button you can store the location of where you parked and recall it later.
Everybody had a blast at Disney, it's been a whirlwind seven days, and everyone's exhausted when you arrive home at the airport.
Call up the app and see where you parked. It's that simple.
Not just for parking either, since it's GPS based you can use it on the lake to get back to your dock, or find a favorite fishing spot.
Use the GateGuru to navigate any airport for food, shopping, and more, and then use My Car Locator when you get back home to find your car - and more.
