Smartphones are a traveling necessity unless of course you are going commando in the jungle.  I prefer to be well connected when I travel.  There are so many apps available for both iPhones and Androids that you can have tons of information at your fingertips.

Smartphone apps for travelers can save your bacon in a pinch.  They can help you find your way, get a rental car, a hotel room or find a great restaurant.  They even have apps that will convert currency and translate a foreign language.

Here are some of my favorites:

booking capability and maps.  Perfect for multi-city

navigate, and the reviews are easy to read.

everywhere with me.
