TRAVELING WITH APPS - Dubai

Dubai – not the run of the mill tourist destination

Dubai isn't on everyone's vacation list. Unless you happen to be a multi-millionaire, it's a place most of us will only ever see on the TV. And yet, Dubai has over 15,000 visitors a year. Many go there on business as the emirate is a major business center for the Middle East but many others go there for the…..shopping! For many people in the area, and even from as far away as Japan and Australia, Dubai is known as the \\"Shopping Capital\\" of the Middle East where you can buy anything from a copper plate to a diamond studded toothbrush.

Anyway, we had a stopover in Dubai on our way from Italy to Australia and for once I didn't get any apps for my IPad. Big mistake as I soon discovered when we landed and cleared passport control. It may be small, but there's a lot packed into this place – for one thing it Dubai City has ever 70 shopping malls! But thanks to the wonder of the internet, I went online to 10TravelApps.com and looked at their recommendations for good Dubai apps.

Straight away I downloaded the \\"Definitely Dubai\\" app. Apart from being free (maybe the only thing that is free in this place) it had a load of info on Dubai: shops, hotels, restaurants, even architectural landmarks. Even more important, the \\"Definitely Dubai\\" app has a currency converter, useful Arabic phrases and the AR feature and the \\"Near Me\\" feature are great ways of finding out what's around you and letting you know about bargains at one of the shops (I was looking for a really cheap diamond bracelet…)

Look but don't buy

The \\"Definitely Dubai\\" app was a really nifty way to find our way around the city. One thing I have to say, even the bargains can be very, very, very expensive. For example, when I pointed my IPhone at a Ferrari, the Dubai app quickly told me that just around the corner I could get a 2011 599 Ferrari GTB Fiorano with a discount of 10% for cash – I wonder if it'll fit in my suitcase?

Have you ever seen those t-shirts: \\"My dad went to New York and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt\\"? My kids won't even be getting that.
