    This is a much better list than I have seen on other sites.
    That’s a really good idea to get the WebMD app before going abroad; you never know.
    I’d also add near2there.
    I put all of the shops, restaurants, and sights I want to visit.
    It gives me maps and directions.
    When I get nearby a place, it alerts me so I don’t forget.
    It is like a “to go” list as opposed to a “to do” list.
