    I entered "Las Vegas" on my Google store and up came close to 100 apps! Can anyone recommend good apps for- in my case- Android phones?

    I was just saying to myself the other day while looking at cabana's at MB - these hotel websites and apps suck. Broken images, sometimes no pictures or poorly cropped pictures or no pricing, etc...

    For a city / industry almost completely based on eye candy, they don't do a very good job of conveying the look and feel of any given place. Club pages should be covered in videos and pictures, pools should have complete maps, pictures, etc...

    As a web developer, there might be some money to be made here haha.

    Best app by far used to be Viva Vegas... Reviewed evrything in vegas updated almost dailey, answered any question you had within the hour...oh do I miss it. Was retired after a sickness in the writers family.
    I use Travel Vegas, not the best. Some things haven't been updated in a while, but has coverage and reviews over most things Vegas

    Tap talk for live TR pics. It made my last TR a breeze and it was fun to do it on the go as opposed to recapping each night, or even worse, at the end of the trip. It's a great and super easy way to share pics with all the VMBers.

    Vegas Indoor Maps is outdated but still useful.

    VegasMate (iPhone only) has a number of features such as reviews, maps, taxi calculator, trip planning list etc.

    I used to have a TripAdvisor Vegas app on my old Android phone (so not sure if it is still around) that worked totally offline (including a simple map) which was good for us international travellers wanting to avoid data fees (although that is less of an issue these days).
