Make your PDA go with a Fizz
Rather than carrying around a well-thumbed travel guide when you go abroad, you could store all the information you might need on your PDA or smartphone if you install Fizz Traveller.
It doesn’t tell you the friendliest bars or the best places to eat, but it does offer up all the essential travel information you might need to hand. For example, you’ll have time and weather information for over 58,000 cities worldwide. You can choose your six favourite cities to automatically receive time and weather information, including minimum and maximum temperatures, percentage precipitation, forecast and satellite maps, as well as 5 day and 2 day forecasts. Traveller also gives details of airport delays for the closest airports to your chosen city – where the delays are caused by weather.
In addition, there’s daily updated currency rates and conversions capabilities, including weight, length, area and speed, as well as clothing and shoes sizes. Ansd there’s alarm functionality and the ability to compile to-do lists and add notes on the go.
Traveller supports all screen resolutions (QVGA, square screen devices and landscape/portrait on Pocket PCs) and provides Windows 5 mobile support.
It’s available now for around $20 (around £11).
