Traveling or just moving from one place to another can be very fun, but very tiring also. Especially when you go to a completely different place from home. You don’t know where to eat, what to drink, what parks are near you, what museums, shops or hotels. And if you have an emergency, you might find yourself traveling all across town for a hospital, just because you didn’t know there was one just around the corner. But all these problems can now be easily fixed with one app. This is PlaceBox, and you can purchase it from the AppStore today.
