Going to and fro? These federal government apps will help you get you on your way.
This app from the Transportation Safety Administration gives airport status updates and provides information on what is allowed and not allowed in carry-on luggage. The app also has a feature where people can post and compare (or check before leaving home) about how long the security lines are at the airport.
This isn’t the most handy app for, say, a trip to Dewey Beach, but if you’re traveling abroad it can be a life saver as this State Department app shows the nearest U.S. Embassy no matter where you are in the world.
This new app from the State Department lets U.S. travelers see official country information, travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, and more when planning trips abroad. Smart Traveler also provides quick access to the Department’s Consular Affairs Facebook and Twitter pages.
Going electric or at least not using gas? The Department of Energy has an alternative fuel locator app that works on any mobile Internet-ready device and allows drivers to find the five closest biodiesel, electricity, E85 (etha¬nol), hydrogen, natural gas, and propane fueling sites.
