If you don’t feel like staying in an expensive hotel, this is the perfect app for you. Airbnb does not directly lease and instead serves as a broker between hosts and guests by charging a commission.
You can find short-term lodging, including apartments, studio flats, hostels, all the way up to houses. Hosts set prices while prospective renters view pictures of accommodations, read reviews, and send reservation messages. Depending on the size of a property, guests can book up to 16 adults. (Be sure to check for the most recent Covid-related restrictions.)

For those who don’t speak a word of Korean, this app will be a lifesaver. Papago is a translation service, that supports six languages; including Korean and English.

Other features include a currency converter, that gives updates on exchange rates for currencies such as USD and KRW. For ambiguous words, there is a WSD (Word Sense Disambiguation) that provides images that give the word a clearer definition.
It’s no secret that losing your passport or credit cards on vacation is everyone’s worst nightmare. Fear no more, because Security Cards Widget is an app that removes the need to carry cards in your wallet.
You can simply wire money with one touch and store an unlimited amount of cards. Each card that you store comes with secure encryption and requires a passcode to unlock. In fact, users can lock the app itself to keep their information safe from prying eyes. If you aren’t comfortable with using a passcode, the app also offers fingerprint verification.
To make things even better, there’s no need to manually enter your card’s information. Users can take a picture of their cards and the app will automatically store the information.
