Find a flight,
hotel, or car rental

With its stripped-down interface, Kayak is easy to use,
making it our favorite way to look up airfares, as well as hotel rooms and
rental cars. For flights, you can sort your results by price, trip length, and
even departure and arrival times using Kayak’s signature sliders. One hitch:
you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version to get first- and business-class fare
quotes.

Cost: Free; $1.99 for the Pro version.

Runs On: Android, BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Windows
Mobile.

Runners-up: TripAssist by Expedia (free;
iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch), Travelocity (free; Android, iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch).

Manage your
vacation right from your phone

Forward all your travel confirmations to Worldmate and it
automatically updates an online profile, keeps track of flight delays and gate
changes, and even reminds you to check in on time. You also get weather
forecasts, a currency converter, a tip calculator, world clocks, local
restaurant and shopping listings (with directions), and the ability to make
hotel and flight reservations.

Cost: Free; $14.99 for the Gold version, which gives you faster
updates.

Runs On: BlackBerry, iPhone/iPod Touch, Symbian, Windows
Mobile.

your trip
