Mobile apps for phones and tablets are an excellent and convenient way to discover more about the places you’re visiting.

These mobile app guides can direct you the best Split beaches, sights and attractions, accommodation, restaurants or coffee bars, nightlife spots, activities, travel agencies, tour guides, shops and services.

We have more of that information published on our website and we’re always just a quick visit away, but having all this information handy on your mobile phone can be helpful if you can’t get internet access.

I’ll give you a quick rundown of some of the best and most useful apps! Most of these apps are beneficial regardless if you’re traveling to Split or some other destination in Croatia, so I suggest you take a look at my list and see if you find something interesting.

Note that I will not be recommending apps which don’t have English language. I’ll also only list free apps that don’t require any purchases to be used.

Croatia Traffic Info – HAK

HAK stands for Hrvatski Auto Klub (Croatian Auto Club), an organization which provides roadside assistance and traffic information.

Their mobile app is extremely useful for anyone traveling in Croatia via car. It has live traffic condition reports letting you know if you should avoid certain roads due to maintenance, accidents, or just general traffic jams.

HAK mobile app also has a detailed list of nearly 700 gas stations in Croatia along with current gas prices, but also a toll calculator which will tell you how much money you need for highway tolls.

There’s also a huge database of over 15,000 points of interest, including airports, camping sites, ATMs, hospitals, hotels, kiosks, pharmacies, parking lots, banks, etc.

Jadrolinija’s Ferry Lines app will give you an overview of all ferry routes, saving you the hassle of searching for it on their not-so-mobile-friendly website. With this app, navigating Croatia’s ferry network is easy!

This app works offline as well so you can use it anytime without worrying about internet connections, but it’s still recommended to double-check current routes on Jadrolinija’s website just to be sure.

If you plan on doing any kind of ferry travel during your visit to Croatia I highly recommend trying this app.

Sadly there are no Windows or Android versions.

Google Translate

Translating Croatian to English or any other language has quite obvious benefits. You never know when you might need to know a few world of Croatian language, and this app will make it easy to quickly translate any word or phrase from English to Croatian or vice versa.

While Google Translate has its issues, it’s still definitely better than most other language translation tools. It also supports offline translations, so be sure to download language pack for Croatian to avoid unnecessary internet use.

Just in case you don’t want Google’s translator, there are plenty of other translation apps to choose from on app stores.
