Best Facebook travel apps

There are now almost 300 travel-related Facebook applications - some very good, some very bizarre.

But as Facebook is all about sharing information, experiences, videos and photos, rather like what people do when they return from holiday, this is probably a low number considering there is a grand total of nearly 10,150.

The current top five apps in terms of most active use are:

Petrolhead - 295,000 (12% use every day)
What City Should You Live In? - 23,000 (11% use every day)
Local Picks? - 19,000 (5%)
Traveler IQ Challenge - 52,000 (4%)
Cities I've Visited - 132,000 (3%)

Incidentally, the final three of that list were developed by TripAdvisor or one of its subsidiaries.

But which are the best out of the 300? [We don't have time to go through them all, so thought it would handy to ask you lot...]

You mean there are other travel apps besides ours? :)

To clarify, this is not the perfect app for Facebook and we know it. It's too tedious for most of the users there. If you do take the time to set it up, it looks awesome though in canvas view :) There's some things that we could do that we know of to make it more suitable for FB, but hey, only so many hours in a day!
