Technology and I don't always play well. My kids know more about computers than I do. Do they have computer junkies? They dowload all kinds of apps. My son just downloaded an app to get a cover for his iTouch. I feel like I am a dying breed when someone looks at me like I should know what planet I am on when I tell them my kids can do this technology thing and I don't even own a cell phone.
What I do know is that technology has rocketed to new plains of existence and that when traveling, travel apps are a must. Here are 5 really cool travel apps you can use when traveling internationally.
London Tube for iPad
Now, this promises to be very helpful as it has official subway maps, provides the best route to your destination, there is a bookmark manager to remember your subway stations and routes, and because of GPS, it provides live updates with the distance as you walk to your tube.
Now even I could not get lost with that app.

I am a stickler for keeping things, like receipts, organized. These travel apps would allow someone the same aspect, especially for business travel:
Trip it allows you to organize your itineraries such as flight, hotel, and dinner confirmations by linking to your email account. Any confirmation number will be automatically put into this app, and you can access it at any time, including any flight information as well.
