The touches of technology can make everything smooth and travel is no exception. The development of Apps knows no end, to make living app-propriate! So, if you are a travel enthusiast and using a smart phone, there are several apps to support you during a trip. No more you need to fret about booking tickets, finding accommodation, getting roadmap or availing a tour guide. With some wonderful apps on your smart phone, you can sort out any issue within a second. In this article, we discuss five such apps and we are sure, you would love them!


Here we enlist the apps based on the purposes. So, actually there are more than five apps and you can pick up any five depending upon your purpose.


  1. Travel Guide

India Travel Guide by Triposo is an amazing creation for the travelers, as it is the best replacement for a heavy travel guide book. Here you can find minute details about your destination like the places to visit, transport, hotels, restaurants, shopping places and what not! The most interesting fact is that this app keeps functioning even when you are offline, i.e., it will keep giving you updates when your data is off.


For specific information about restaurants, shops, medical or other emergency services within a city, you must use the Justdial app to access the greatest information directory within India. If you are a foodie, download the Zomato app for specific guidance about restaurants and food services.


  1. Booking a Ticket

Whenever you finalize a trip, the first step to confirm it is booking travel tickets. It becomes difficult when you decide a trip within a very short time. The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Connect app is available for the Android phones. It relieves you of the tension of rail ticket booking. It preserves your data so you do not need to fill up all the details each time you go for a booking. It has a good rating on Google Play.


Air India has its mobile app for domestic and international flight booking. There are also the Make My Trip and Cleartrip apps for flight booking.


There are Ola Cab, Uber Cab and Meru Cab apps for booking cabs and traveling within the cities. The RedBus app is available for android and i-phone. For long distance journeys booking a cab is not always affordable and safe. The RedBus offers several bus service facilities and easy booking options for you.


  1. Weather Forecast

India is a land of diversity. With mountains, seas, rivers, desert, forests and more geographical variations within a single land, you will find a variation in climate also. And when you are traveling to a place, it is very important to know the weather to make a smooth trip. Keeping this in mind, the Weather Pro app has been developed. It gives you the details of altitude, air pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, snowfall and every possible detail of the weather/ climate of a certain place. Now you can precisely decide how many woolens to carry or whether to keep a raincoat with you; isn’t that wonderful?


  1. Travel Packages

Avoid the hassle of Googling and use the ‘Hello Travel Packages’ app to find the best travel packages. Whatever be your motto of traveling—holidaying, pilgrimage or adventure, you will get specific guidance from this app. You will find several packages matching your budget.


  1. Combo Apps

There are apps like Make My Trip, Cleartrip or Goibibo, that offers you various facilities of traveling. These apps precisely give you a complete support when traveling is concerned. Hotel booking, travel package, ticket booking—you can find everything on a single platform. So, choose such an app depending on the type of the device you are using—i-phone or Android.

Repeat a portrait eight times so it can be cut out from a 6″x4″ photo and used for visa or passport photos

Yes, You could do it in the GIMP or even use Inkscape to auto-align the clones, but the command line is so much easier.

NOTE: The +clone and -clone options are just to shorten the command line instead of typing the same filename eight times. It might also speed up the montage by only processing the image once, but I’m not sure. “+clone” duplicates the previous image, the following two “-clone”s duplicate the first two and then the first four images.

NOTE2: The -frame option is just so that I have some lines to cut along.

BUG: I haven’t bothered to calculate the exact geometry (width and height) of each image since that was not critical for the visa photos I need. If it matters for you, it should be easy enough to set using the -geometry flag near the end of the command. For example, if you have your DPI set to 600, you could use “-geometry 800×1200!” to make each subimage 1? x 2 inches. You may want to use ImageMagick‘s “-density 600” option to put a flag in the JPEG file cuing the printer that it is a 600 DPI image.

BUG2: ImageMagick does not autorotate images based on the EXIF information. Since the portrait photo was taken with the camera sideways, I made the JPEG rotate using jhead like so: jhead -autorot 2007-08-25-3685.jpg
