Three Must-Have Travel Apps, From Joanna Stern (VIDEO)

When it comes to must-have travel applications for your smartphone, Wall Street Journal Personal Technology Columnist Joanna Stern had some great suggestions.

TripIt is a simple program that organizes your itinerary from your emails. If you have details for an upcoming trip like a car or hotel reservation or a flight itinerary, TripIt combs through those details and bring them into one organized space. “It becomes your assistant!” Joanna laughed.

Joanna loves an application called Waze. This is a great GPS navigation application that gathers information from other drivers on the road to help combat traffic and congestion.

Joanna also recommends Guru, an application that helps travelers navigate airports. Guru tells passengers what stores and restaurants are near your gate to save time and energy, making your trip much smoother.
