How Smartphones Have Disrupted The Way Nigerians Travel by Revolva(m): 9:50pm On Sep 11, 2018
A smartphone is now an integral part of our lives. They've literally become ubiquitous, replacing quite a few of our day-to-day objects and bringing a whole new meaning to the term multitasking. The travel industry is not immune from this smartphone phone disruption. How has smartphone changed the way people travel? i highlight some of the interesting ways.

Planning a trip

With the aid of messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook, you can easily gather your friends to plan a getaway to any local or international destination. You simply need to create a group and share information about the getaway with friends.

Find your way around


Finding your way around a particular spot is no longer difficult, thanks to Google map. With Google map, you do not only find your way around the town or city, you can also find banks, ATM spots, taxi parks, shopping malls and other places of interest.

Travel photos

The days of the camera are numbered. This is because, with a good smartphone camera, you can take quality travel pictures and share them on social media. You do not need to employ the services of a photographer.

Booking flight & accommodation


The arrival of the smartphone has been particularly pertinent in how you book hotel accommodation. The adoption of smartphones has made travellers more spontaneous and last minute. A substantial number of bookings are now done via a mobile device. This is because it is seamless to use a smartphone.

Places to check out

To decide on a destination to visit, many travellers use their smartphone to get information about the place. There are tons of information about the destination that can help your decision making. However, ensure that you are getting the information from a trustworthy website.

Ordering room service

Most hotels still take room service orders the old-fashioned way: You thumb through the in-room menu, compile your order and place a call to the correct extension. But for some hotels, you can order room service through their app, which would ideally make the process more efficient and easier.

Smartphones have caused more harm than good.

Immediately husband and wife finish making love,they turn to the side and start browsing. No time for bonding.

Family no longer talk to themselves face to face,even if they live in the same house. They have a family chat group now.

People no longer concentrate at the work now,and spend all their time on gossip websites.

As I type this, there is a girl somewhere with her legs raised up,getting pumped and looking at the ceiling so she can buy a smartphone.

I am addicted to Google maps when I get to a new place.

It failed me terribly once though.
I tried to locate a restaurant. I trekked and trekked round the tagged spot but never saw it. grin

Not to forget too that those in long distance relationships now cheat with impunity. For sure, your partner isn't travelling from several states away to visit without informing you beforehand . cheesy
