Who's it for: Frequent travelers who could use a little help getting organized
Yes, a second Google app gets a mention here. (What can we say, Google had a good year!) Trips is a super-smart and handy travel app, and the easiest way to organize all the intel, documents, and itineraries you need for upcoming trips. Not only does it pull together all of your reservation info (airline, hotel, train, etc.) into one place for easy offline access, but it makes it incredibly easy to create a custom half- or full-day itinerary incorporating spots you already know you'd like to see as well as attractions, bars, and restaurants it recommends. Though, let's be real, Thrillist Maps does a pretty damn good job finding great places to eat and drink in a whole bunch of cities, too.
