Location: Washington, DC
One-Line Bio: The travel news/travel buzz editor at AOL’s MapQuest,
Zach previously was a freelance writer, contributing to the Wall Street
Journal, enRoute, and Eater.
Kindle: I’m trying to read more fiction. With this eBook reader and
Amazon’s library with me at all
times, I have no more excuses.
Flipboard: Its All Timelines feature
enables me to keep up with my
most important social media feeds
in one beautiful stream.
TripIt: I just for ward travel confirmation emails to TripIt and it compiles
them into an itinerary that syncs
with Calendar and is easy to share.
Horse Races Now: Five years living in Kentucky left a mark. While
I’ve yet to find an app that lets me
sip bourbon, this one does help me
Instapaper: I scan through about a
thousand headlines a day. The articles I want to read, but don't immediately have time to, end up here.
Camera+: Instagram’s filters grow
tiresome after a while. This app provides a slew of other options that
help my photos stand out.
AOL: It keeps me current on breaking stories in all areas, both via articles and videos. And, full disclosure,
I like to read my own articles.
Notability: It records while you
type. When I can’t remember a
note’s meaning, I select the text and
the app plays the audio from when
I typed it.
MapQuest: Recently redesigned, its
real-time alerts and rerouting are essential for daily battle with DC-area
traffic. It allows me to compare gas
Feedly: This RSS reader makes it
easy for me to track the 100 or so
travel-related news sites I monitor
