What did we ever do without smart phones? I love no longer having to pack a separate phone, camera, flashlight, MP3 player, etc. Here are some apps I actually use:
Evernote (for collecting travel info, ideas, and confirmation emails)
Dropbox (for automatically uploading smart phone photos to the cloud)
Audible (for listening to audiobooks)
Pandora (for listening to music)
Google Maps (I like to use Street View for virtually scoping out an area where I will be staying.)
TripIt is an app I have not used, but it seems very popular and I might try it next time.
There are any number of other apps that people use for, say, road trips. Apps for navigating, locating hotels and roadside attractions, monitoring gas usage, and star-gazing. But, well, when you start from Albuquerque most of your drive time is in the middle of nowhere, without a signal.
