SmartPhones have made many parts of life easier, including travel. Before your next trip, consider taking these apps along with you.
App in The Air
App in the Air includes features such as keeping travel of itineraries, boarding passes, and frequent flyer information, as well as up-to-date weather, alerts about delays, and currency information for major airports around the world.
We like it because it allows you track boarding times, landing times, and current wait times for check-in, security, and customs. A subscription is required.
