Hawaii – There’s an App for That

imageWe’ve discovered that many folks access Go Visit Hawaii via their iPhone when they are in Hawaii. So, when my friend Dave passed along this list of Hawaii- themed iPhone applications, I thought you would want to know about them.

In that app list, there’s some very useful free apps like:

Though not free, I’m impressed by this Hawaii Envi app that is designed to help you sightsee Oahu via TheBus system. The cost of that app is $1.99, which is a bargain versus renting and fueling a rental car.

I’m downloading a couple of $0.99 apps that look to be interesting — the Hawaiian Word of the Day and the iVacation Hawaii apps.

One iPhone app that’s not in that list that we routinely use in Hawaii is the free Yelp app to help us find restaurants when we’re in Hawaii as well as our other travels.

Do you have a useful travel-related iPhone application that you recommend? Please share them in the comments.

  1. Google Earth is a pretty cool way to survey your surroundings.

    The photo & video apps are a must-have. I use an app called ReelDirector to edit several video clips together. I use Photogene to correct the color of photographs and I use AutoStitch to create panoramas.

  2. Sheila, I just purchased an Ipod Touch, and BOY! are there apps for Hawaii!! There’s Free Maui, Free Kauai, Free Hawaii, Free Oahu (inexpensive things to do on each island), each just $.99, and sooo many more. Just go to the iTunes store and go to the search bar, put in Hawaii and then click on apps, and all these apps are there for you to pick from. My niece is thinking of going this year, and her daughter has an Ipod Touch, so I’m going to direct her to the apps store. I’ll get into it later too, when I start planning my next trip the the Isles.

    Aloha to you and all readers.

    1. Thanks Joanne, I’ll check it out. Sounds like there’s a bunch more. If you come across some that you think are especially good, please let us know.

  3. Neat list. Already had the Hawaii News Now app, which is great mobile version of their site.

    Still trying to find time to finish the first of my Maui photo related apps. I might have to go back for more research. 😉
