Looking to beef up your iPhone or iPad for your next big trip? Well why not start with these three extremely helpful apps
Tripshare: Designed for the "Type A" traveler obsessed with planning every vacation detail, Tripshare guarantees you'll leave nothing to chance by letting you use your iPad to map out the entire adventure -- from flight times and hotel stays, to museum visits and restaurant reservations -- and then easily share them with your group before booking
GateGuru: Recently overhauled and relaunched with a fresh look and even more functionality, GG's your "day-of travel assistant" and does everything from providing real-time flight/gate info, to locating the Chick-fil-A in Hartsfield Airport (hint: Concourse A!), to now even helping you book a cheap rental car on the fly, "in just two taps!
Desti: Turning your iPad into a "personal travel concierge", Desti uses Siri-like artificial intelligence to answer almost any travel-planning question you can throw at it -- from where to stay in Manhattan Beach for under $200, to the best hiking in Oahu, to which restaurants in Seattle will let your terrier dine with you -- allowing you to build, share, and book trips without scouring the entirety of the Internet.
