We love Las Vegas
, and anything that helps us save money in Sin City is good in our books. That's why we love the new TravelVegas app
. Made by the same team that launched TravelVegas.com, a great site for Las Vegas Discounts, the free app is full of coupons and useful information.
"By simplifying an overwhelming amount of information in an iPhone app, we are able to help travelers find their way around the city, all while saving them money," said Brandon Schenecker, TravelVegas CEO.
While we like the idea of discounts, we're probably not the clientele for the $5 steak and egg breakfast special. Instead, we prefer to use the app for planning, saving things we plan to do in the "favorites" tab and then using the map feature to plan out our itinerary.
The app is also useful while strolling the strip. Travelers can explore the city on a multifaceted map that allows the user to sort, filter and search for just about anything. Lost, as we so often happen to be? Users can make a phone call, get directions, or view an indoor hotel map.
You can also use the app to view a menu and set up dining reservations, buy discounted tickets, or book a hotel room, something that is notoriously difficult to do on Vegas hotel's flashy but less-than-easy-to-navigate hotel websites.
