It also helps you plan itineraries and share your pretty photos on your feeds.

GyPSy Guide: Forget Spotify for your road trip through Alberta. Download this app and choose from a whack of audio guided driving tours in the province for a few bucks each. From learning about dinosaurs to bears, the app is loaded with hundreds of places, stories and tips. It’s just like having a tour guide along for the ride, but without the dad jokes. The audio is downloadable before your trip, so the app won’t burn through your data or need WiFi either.
