Although there are several GPS applications available, the Waze Social GPS might be one of the better options. Rather than rely on simple navigation information, Waze doubles as a social network, allowing users to share with others where there’s heavy traffic, an accident or even posted police officers. It’s a handy app to have when driving around in places you’re not familiar with. Plus, it’s free.

Apple’s Find My iPhone application is an important one for those who are traveling around the globe and have a tendency to forget where they placed things.

So, if you leave it at the restaurant, you’ll be able to figure out exactly where it is and go back to pick it up. It’s a very important tool.
