There are other excellent apps available, particularly for hiking and GPS, and the CultureFrancia app relies on them to perform these functions. Here are some apps we recommend you install.
Visorando is a hiking app that allows you to discover new trails and hiking routes in France. The app allows you to follow your route in real-time, so you never get lost along the way. Read our dedicated article about Visorando.
Lens is an image recognition app developed by Google. With Lens, you can take a photo of an object, and the app will give you information about that object. For example, if you take a picture of a restaurant menu, Lens will give you information about the ingredients with links to photos. Very useful if you don’t know some items on a menu.
Google Maps is a navigation app that allows you to find your way to any destination. With Maps, you can get directions by car, public transportation, walking, or biking (if available), and you can also see scheduled departure and arrival times for public transportation. The most complete GPS app.
Waze is a GPS navigation app that helps you avoid traffic jams and delays on the road. Waze uses data provided by other users to help you find the fastest and most efficient routes to your destination. Additionally, the app alerts you to accidents, road work, and other traffic issues that could slow down your journey. A good alternative to Maps for car trips.
Uber is a ridesharing app that allows you to find local drivers to take you wherever you want to go. With Uber, you can choose your type of vehicle and get real-time fares for your trip. Additionally, you can track your driver in real-time on the map and get updates on the estimated time of arrival. Very useful when you are in a large city in France and don’t want to drive or take public transportation. This can often be the case after dinner, for example, when returning to your accommodation.
Park4Night is a motorhome app that allows users to find safe places to spend the night. Whether you are traveling in a motorhome or a converted van, Park4Night allows you to find places to spend the night based on your current location or destination. The app provides detailed information about each location, including photos and user comments, as well as information about available amenities such as toilets, showers, and access to drinking water.
We select the best locations near the places where you will spend the night during your trip : you will find them within your itinerary in our CultureFrancia app.
