For vacation travel
▪ PackPoint can’t pack for you, but it is “the sage assistant you wish you could hire to help.” Tell the app your gender and where you’re heading, and name a few likely activities. It will check the weather and supply a concise recommended packing list—so you don’t have to think of every detail.
▪ Postsnap turns vacation photos into postcards—still a “far more touching” way to share your adventures than a post on social media. Provide a photo and a mailing address and the iOS app will print and mail the card anywhere in the world for $2.75.
▪ XE Currency is an “indispensable” tool for anyone adjusting to a new currency on the fly. It’ll let you know instantly if that Italian leather purse is a bargain or a splurge.
▪ Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App calculates how long you can stay in the sun each day. Just plug in your location, your skin type, and your sunscreen’s SPF level. Source: The Boston Globe ■
