Go Offline for Your Mapping, Navigation

Offline Maps & Navigation is a useful app for anyone who knows he or she won't have access to the Web for an extended period. The app provides full access to roads and other information around a particular area, and will deliver navigation instructions. It's a handy app to have when driving around town and away from a WiFi or other wireless signal.

A Little Help With Understanding Everyone

As international business travelers know all too well, the language barrier can sometimes be difficult to overcome. That's where Voice Translator comes in. The app translates the user's voice and plays it for those around him or her. The app also works when communicating via text with someone else.

Plan Your Trip With Flights

Flights is a simple but critical app for anyone planning a trip, as it lets users search different airlines for the best prices. Unlike some other apps, such as Expedia, the app doesn't handle processing itself. Instead, it will simply find the best, cheapest combination of flights for users and then direct them to the offering site of their choosing. Think of Flights as the Google of flight shopping.

Track Those Flights With FlightAware

When it's time to take the flight, it's also time to turn to FlightAware. The app tracks all of the flights in the air, but more importantly, it informs users on the status of their flight, how far along in their trip they are and much more. FlightAware is a must-have flight tracker for any business traveler.

Kayak Does a Little Bit of Everything

Kayak is arguably one of the most full-featured applications in this roundup, providing users with flight, hotel and car shopping. Plus, it comes with the ability to explore points of interest around a particular location and alerts users when prices come down. It even has a flight tracker and trip-itinerary feature built-in.

WorldMate Takes Control Over All Aspects of the Trip

WorldMate is designed for those who want to have a single repository in which they can manage all aspects of their trip. The app lets users manage their flights, find out where their gates are, store the confirmation numbers for cars and hotels, and much more. It's like having a personal travel assistant in a smartphone.

Uber Is There if You Need a Car

Well-known car-hailing service Uber makes it easy for users to request a car, pay through the app with a credit card and get to their destination without any trouble. While Uber is only available in select cities, in those hundreds of cities where it is available, it's a vital app for any business traveler. Image 7: Please use this image:

Planner Helps You Stay on Track

Planner isn't a dedicated traveling app, but it certainly works well as one. The app has a built-in calendar and organizer and is an ideal way for users to keep track of where they need to be once they get to their destination. Planner includes support for notes, events and tasks, and lets users look at the week ahead. It's like Google Calendar, but with some extra features tossed in.

Zagat Offers Up Restaurant Reviews

When it's time to bring a client to lunch or dinner, finding the best place to go is paramount. That's where Zagat comes in. The free app provides restaurant reviews, so users can see which restaurants in town are best, based on everything from food quality to service. There's even a tab so users can find options based on their desired price range.

Order Your Food Through GrubHub

For those who would rather eat in, GrubHub is a valuable app. It provides a list of restaurants around a particular location. Once users find what they want, they can either order from within the app and have the food delivered, or request take-out. Either way, GrubHub is a handy app when users are in a new town and just want to get some good food and relax.
