Tripadvisor
Nothing gives as much comfort when booking a holiday as getting opinions and insights from other travellers. As one of the most established travel review services online, chances are that if it’s out there, it will have a review on Tripadvisor.
This app lets you browse 75 million something reviews, view photos and find hotels and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended.

XE Currency Converter

This app shouldn’t need much introduction. With over 180 currencies (and metals) to choose from with historical rates, price conversion and the ability to track 10 different currencies at the same time you will never do those dreaded guesstimations again.

Evernote

The world’s most popular notetaking app also provides indispensable functionality for travellers. Save your itineraries, web bookmarks and photos of things you will need to remember and quickly re-locate them with Evernote’s brilliant search function.
But perhaps the best feature is the optical character recognition function, letting you search text in scanned travel articles and guidebooks while you’re on the road.

Now, maybe that title was a bit too chicken little (remember, he thought the sky was falling), because obviously the World Wide Web is still going strong; however, the points the story made about why apps are redefining how we use and will use the Internet in the future were spot on, with the biggest reason being that apps are faster and uncluttered, making the information super highway look more like a New Jersey Turnpike at rush hour.
