    Great list of apps, but you missed my new favourite app. It's called Simply Declare and it tracks what I have to declare to customs when I get home. Super easy to use, keeps my purchases in real time currency rates, take a picture of the receipts, makes a list and keeps me on budget so I never have to pay duty when I get back to the states. Your list is great, but everyone knows about your picks, time to find great apps which really help to reduce travel stresses.

    Awesome list of apps, shame there weren't many about language apps other then google translate, which isn't the best, my fav would definitely have to be VidaLingua which has some great multilingual dictionary apps for French, Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese. Cool thing is you can add stuff to dictionary entries like slang, or a an expression in a dialect of the language. Check them out at http://vidalingua.com

    Great list!
    I recently found a new one: TravelEchoes (only for iOS). It has a great guide to Spain and France by some amateur guys, but the info is really helpful and detailes. It was very useful for me when visiting Spain last month.
