When you are planning to visit Armenia and spend there some days, it would be good to have some apps on your phone that will help you quickly take care of your needs.
If your phone number does not have roaming, then you would be locked somehow from the rest of the world. At the armenian airports of Zvartnots and Gyumri, the Wi-Fi internet access is free of charge, but when you go out of the airport, you would not be able to get access till you get to the hotel or apartment of you destination.
To stay connected you'd better take a local phone number at the airport, near the exit gates, where the mobile operators give them away to tourists. Once you are connected, take some minutes to connect to the Whi-Fi internet of the airport and download the following apps that will may need.
