I love a good “Best of” list. Smart phones, iPads, and iPods can be a great resource when travelling. Below are links to some of the “Best of” lists on the web.
And for those of you who don’t want to click through all the lists, here’s the apps that made several of them:
- TripIt: Helps organize and store itineraries
- Google Translate: Both written and oral communications can be translated
- Currency Converter : A simple interface to help with those tricky currency conversions

Recommendations for iPad Apps including Hg2 - I just downloaded it for some upcoming International travel.
