Best apps for traveling smart

One app sets up a daily itinerary and another offers advice about airport services during a layover.

mTrip plans your daily itinerary when you tell it what city you’re visiting, where you’re staying, and what you hope to fit in. There’s a $6 app for each of the 28 cities the service covers, but no roaming charges apply. An “augmented reality” feature uses your phone’s camera to highlight points of interest you might’ve overlooked. (Android, iPhone)

Telicost-Lite helps you avoid overage charges while traveling. It monitors your phone use and alerts you when you’re being charged for roaming or approaching your plan’s monthly limits. (Android, BlackBerry, iPhone)

iFly edges out GateGuru to remain the best available airport guide. When you’re trying to make the most of a layover, it’ll offer useful advice, “whether you’re looking for dinner, a manicure, or a quick tour of your locale.” (Android, iPhone, iPad)
