    I highly recommend an app called TripList which is a packing organizer app — helped me many times packing for all of my trips.

    Your best travel app is still your travel agent.

    Thanks for the sharing. I had 8 apps on 9!
    But there is another app that is very useful for travel planning: SunnyLife App (Full Ed), the only “Best Time to Visit” iPhone app on the AppStore, with average climates of 250 most visited destinations in the world.
