Many travelers enjoy the ability to track their flight’s progress during flight. One problem with this is that while many airliners are adding in-flight WiFi, the majority of airliners remain without connectivity while in the air. Thanks to an app called WindowSeat, travelors will be able to track their flights in-flight without needing GPS or a persistent network connection. The traveler programs in their flight while on the ground, and WindowSeat downloads flight data from the internet. Then when the flight takes off, WindowSeat provides real-time data as to where the plane is based on time and the pilot’s pre-planned flight path. The app features mapping of the plane’s course, as well as detailed information about landmarks and sights the plane flies over.
2. SayHi Translate
Have you ever been to a country where you don’t speak the native language and wished you could communicate with the locals? Well now you can with SayHi Translate for iOS. With over 100 languages supported, SayHi will not only listen in for the languages, but then translate them to English (or whichever language you specify). The only problem we found with this app is that it requires an active internet connection, so make sure when traveling there is an active internet connection via cellular or WiFi data. Additionally the app allows for manual keyed text entry if you want to translate a sign or text. Cost is $4.99. Might be a little high for some, but believe me its well worth the price.

3. Xe Currency
It is a known fact that the currency rate changes daily. Always keeping abreast of the current rate can be a challenge in itself, to add to that remembering the formula to convert exchange rate. Xe.com has developed a free, easy to use mobile app to solve this problem. The simple, intuitive interface allows you to add numerous currencies, and select a base currency for easy conversion. Therefore if we ever visit a country and want to know how much an item would cost you in US dollars, simply input the currencies and it will download the latest exchange rates and display the value in US Dollars, or whichever currency you chose. Xe Currency is available for free in the App Store.
Finding the right hotel and travel deals can be a hassle. Most times because of how time consuming it can be to find the right rate for hotels and airfares, most persons tend to give up after few hours and just goes along with whatever rate they seems to be best. We have found Kayak Mobile to be a great app for travelers as it searches not only bargain travel websites, but actual sites of many popular airlines and hotel companies, typically producing the lowest cost rates among travel sites. Users are very happy with this app and we know you will also.
The app is available for free in the App Store.

Before you make that next, make a plan with Tripomatic of what you want to see or where you want to visit, and on which days. Tripomatic has more than 40,000 attractions listed in 300 destinations. The app even syncs with the website Tripomatic.com giving you two choices, website or app. Many top destinations are available offline—maps, photos, and visitors guides (in-app purchase required). One holdback: You can’t save your mapped daily itineraries offline, making it less than ideal when you’re actually on the road. If you do use Tripomatic, pair it with an offline map app.

It has a handful of other reminders, too, like booking reservations and watering the plants before you leave home, which you can save into checklists to guide your harried soul while you’re running around your apartment like a chicken with its head cut off worried that you’ll miss your flight if you dally a moment longer. The $3 app may seem like overkill to those who have packing down to a science already, but it can be an excellent tool for parents who are packing for multiple family members before leaving on vacation.
