    Whether you’re traveling for business or vacationing with your family, it’s essential to keep tabs on flight times, rental car pickups, and hotel reservations. In the past, staying organized meant printing out a handful of pages before you hit the road. Now you can use a few smartphone apps and online services to keep your trip stress-free.

    Once your travel details are on the books, keep all of your information organized with Worldmate, which is available on the Web and as an app for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Send reservations with major hotels, airlines, and car rental brands to trips@worldmate.com, and then use Worldmate to organize your itinerary and travel confirmation numbers. You can even get turn-by-turn directions.

    The app also features a “personal travel assistant” that alerts you to impending flights, as well as the day’s weather at your destination.

    Speaking of personal assistants, you should give Google Now a whirl if you already have an Android device running Android 4.1 or newer—the feature is baked into your gadget. The search giant’s digital personal assistant gives you “just in time” information drawn from services such as Calendar, Gmail, and Google search.

    Big fan of Google Now! While there are still some kinks to be worked out, it's a great help, and has now been brought to the desktop browser!
