Name your current lineup of travel apps if you use an iOS device...
SPG, ITA, HILTON, AWARD WALLET, Airport Ace, Google Translate
iCenter, Narita Intl, TripTracker, iBART, GateGuru, FlightCaster, FlightBoard
I'm a fan of lower cost hotels so I use the booking.com app the most.
AWARD WALLET <Thumbs up>
My flights, LH, Negotiator, Swiss,
When travelling to Napa: NapaWineries
FizzWeather has got to count too. I add and use cities all the time when travelling.
and Lipton i love your tagline!
FlightTrack Pro is good for me, though all those apps appear to be infinitely more useful in the US.
Oh and though not strictly travel-related, a great app on a long flight is Instapaper. Queue up articles to read off the web (using a bookmarklet) and it'll store them in a stripped-down readable format for offline viewing (just make sure you load them all before you leave). Also integrates with many Twitter clients. Basically an “I want to read this later” repository.
Tube Exits for the London Underground, Hop Stop for a variety of US and Int'l transit systems, itrail to figure out how far I've walked. Urban Spoon for food help, and Yelp.
AA, Kayak, ITA, SPG and Avis
(although the AVIS app is pretty close to completely useless, it is not integrated with your Avis.com profile, so to find reservations you need "last name" and "confirmation number" -- the only reason I keep it on my iPhone is in the hope Avis will actually upgrade the app and make it useful)
I'll have to try out a couple of the other ones listed -- thanks.
TripIt (pro), ITA, SPG, Continental
Another one that's not exactly a travel app but hugely useful is Simplenote. It syncs text notes with a web app and desktop apps (that are separately developed). It means I can take notes and they'll always be accessible from different devices (iPad too). I use this to store FF numbers, passport details, addresses, and other info that might come in handy while travelling.
I love Xe Currency:
The one app that I couldn't live without...both at home and on the road is...Pageonce. It will warn you of seat changes...many times before I catch them in my itineraries on .bomb. Not to mention it keeps me on track with all my bills when I'm on the road!
The Awardwallet app is good. I only wish it was able to batch update all my accounts from the app - similar to how it does via the website.
One plus on the Awardwallet app: you could earn miles for your donation. The app features in-app purchase of AwardWallet Plus. If you buy a iTunes gift card through a mileage earning portal beforehand, you can then use that for your upgrade to a plus account.
I use Xe Currency, I am too thick to work exchange rates without it. Flighttrack pro is also quite handy.
I like Flightboard, mainly because it looks so good on the ipad. I have plenty of other travel apps most of which
I don't use but at the time they seemed like a good idea.
I use Kayak most for travel planning, and carrier apps depending on who I'm flying. Just starting to use AwardWallet and I'm anxious to see if it's valuable.
Not so much an app as a bookmark in the browser...http://www.fly.faa.gov/flyfaa/ (Flight Delay Information - Air Traffic Control System Command Center). Used frequently to get an overview on how to think about rebooking when system wide problems strike
Allsubway HD is a good app for the ipad.... subway maps in most cities (i have needed).
I love gate guru.... i wish there were more contributers.
Air France, KLM, BA, LH, SPG, PriorityClub, Aeroweather, Voyages-SNCF, Voyages-SNCF Compagnon, ITA, Skyteam, Amex Travel, TWC, ADP "My Airport", Michelin Traffic, Translator
Oooh, also BiteSMS so I can send very cheap SMS's anywhere and from anywhere over the data link. It's a real money saver for international travel.
