As the name suggests, this app lets you monitor your flight—if it’s on time, and gives you ample warning about possible delays. This enables you to adjust your schedule, make changes to your booking and inform the people expecting you about the delay. Oh, wait, FlightTrack also lets other people keep track of your plane’s progress, so no need to worry about informing them beforehand.

Almost all travel guides will advise you to create an itinerary. Trip Journal takes this to a whole new level because you can use it to create trips, track, record, and document your journey. What’s even better is that you can use it to share the exciting moments of your vacation quickly and easily.

Wi-Fi Finder

This is another essential app that you should not travel without. Unless you’re traveling remote, you need a wireless connection to help you stay connected. This is where Wi-Fi Finder can help you spot Wi-Fi spots, so you can view and send your email or log on to social media sites and brag about your trip. With everyone developing apps of various kinds, expect to find plenty of travel-related software that you can use on your computer or phone. Just make sure to use the most user-friendly of them all.
