What is your favorite travel app?

I am planning a trip to England, France and Switzerland in April. I recently got an iphone4s and an ipad2, and I have downloaded some great and helpful travel apps. Including:
France by Triposo Travel-free
Rail Europe-free
Eurostar-free
SpeakEasy French-free but I upgraded to the paid version
Rick Steves'Audio Europe-free
Tripit-free
I am so excited to be sans guide books this trip! Do you have any favorite apps?
Share....

Not an answer for you, Tina, but could someone explain to me the difference between downloading an app and just adding a site to your home screen? Thanks.

MetrO which gives you the ability to calculate travel on public transportation in cities around the world. I have used it in Paris, Montreal, London, Barcelona and my husband checked it out in Bejing.

IParkedHere . . . not only to take you back to wherever you left your vehicle. Can be used to take you the most direct route back to where you started from, be it hotel, train station, whatever.

Means you can roam around a city, meander through all those interesting little winding lane ways, and not have to worry about getting back to where you started from! Di

My new favorite is TheBiddingTraveler.com it is the latest version of "what people are getting on their Priceline bids". It is a whole lot easier and intuative than the others. It will give you a quick snapshot of what hotels can cost in any city.

google map for android now let you cache larger area for offline use using a convenient zoom and pan selection window. you cannot access your custom maps offline but gives you basic map upto street names level. I load upcoming destination maps while connected to hotel wifi.
