Thanks to augmented reality the app uses your camera and translates words live which are on products in the supermarket or on menus in the restaurant. I’m sure there are endless more use cases where the app may help you.

Google Maps: Store maps offline and use navigation even you are offline. Once stored offline, the most important sightseeings and hotels etc. are also availible offline. In some countries like Iran Google Maps works much better then maps.me

Maps.me: Store all maps (the whole world) offline and plan routes offline. But the app hasn’t as much points of interest as Google maps has.

Your brain needs a break from time to time – use AirBnB to rent a room or flat. Imho AirBnb is much better then booking.com. But of course an other possibility would be to just ask for apartments on-site or use local platforms (may be cheaper).
