Contract travel provides exciting opportunities to see the United States while expanding your skill base and network. But you might have some trepidation about moving somewhere that you have never been. Certainly the quicker you can acclimate to your new surroundings, the more you can concentrate on your work, and the better the overall travel contract experience. Here are five IOS apps that will help you find those small comforts of home while away from home:
Gymsurfing: Missing your workout? This iPhone only app finds gym day passes as low as $5 in most major cities in the U.S. and Canada.
Search Stores: How close is the nearest grocery, furniture or bookstore? Finds what you are looking for along with the quickest route there.
Give Me Delivery: Don’t have the time or energy to make a meal? Put in your zip code and this app gives you a list of local restaurants that deliver, complete with menus.
EventMAP: Need some entertainment? Try this app for local venues holding events and filter by city, date, time and even age group.
Dog Park Finder Plus: Your dog needs socialization too! Download this app for over 2000 dog parks throughout the country, complete with ratings about the facilities.
