It’s always nice if you return the favour and update fuel prices to help the next traveller. Doing so could also score you some freebies -  there's a chance to win a $25 fuel voucher every second day!

Well, WeatherPro will stop this from happening again. It offers weather reports for more than two million geographical locations, and even includes wind speed and humidity. This app is particularly helpful for outdoor and adventurous activities, which are weather-dependent.

Restaurant Finder Australia, the USA, Canada, Europe and Malaysia are just some of the countries where users can access Restaurant Finder. The app uses your current location to suggest restaurants nearby. It also features extensive reviews for each restaurant. It will even alert you to nearby grocery stores if there aren’t any bars or restaurants nearby.

Kayak Kayak compares hundreds of travel sites to find the best deals on hotels, flights and hire cars. The app also has an itinerary management feature and a flight tracker. Kayak also has a feature that allows you to look up airport information, baggage fees and airline numbers. However, perhaps the best and most cost-saving feature is the price alert feature, which alerts you when the flights to your destination suddenly drop in price.
