Must-Have Apps for Android
FlightStats: incredibly easy to use, with all the information I need. Fast app, worth the couple of bucks you have to pay for it. Works for airports & flights outside of the U S as well.
HotelsByMe: find and book hotel properties worldwide from your android phone. Hotels.com/Expedia affiliate network partner
Places Directory: Even better than a yellowpages phonebook: wherever I am it lists the closest banks/atms, gas stations, parking garages, taxis, shopping areas, attractions, restaurants, hotels, drugstores and more What I love about it is that not just it gives you very complete lists of places, but also includes reviews about each location from tripadvisor, zagat and other review websites.
Zagat-NRU (near you): shows Zagat ratings and cost estimates for the nearest restaurants, nightspots and shops in over 75 cities around the world, based on your location. Very simple application, doesn’t have any reviews or additional information about the places, but serves the purpose when you’re wandering in an unknown neighborhood and want to find a close-by place to eat or shop that is recommended by Zagat.
cab4me: lists cab companies, phone numbers and information about them based on your location. May not be as valuable in cities like NY, Boston or Washington DC, where you can easily get cabs in the street, but very helpful to have some numbers at hand, specially if stuck in a remote location….
Tip Calc: easy-to-use calculator for tips. you can choose the percentage of tip you want to give and how many people are in your party, and it does all the calculations for you.
