Platform: BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile
Searching your e-mail for flight and hotel confirmations is not the way to travel. Instead, get organized with WorldMate Gold, which synchronizes your itinerary and meetings with your smart phone. (The BlackBerry version integrates directly with your device’s calendar.) The app features a convenient dashboard that presents info on your next flight or meeting, as well as the weather forecast. Gold subscribers get automated flight alerts for more than 175 airlines, along with suggestions for alternate flights if you need to reschedule. A new partnership with LinkedIn enables users to book meetings with colleagues or clients in cities where you have connections.
Free (Basic), $11.95 per month (Gold; BlackBerry & Windows Mobile), $14.95 (Gold; iPhone); www.worldmate.com
