    Awesome variety in your detailed list Kelly, thank you for the helpful information. I can certainly agree that I have found amazing peace of mind, with TripIt by my side. Although sometimes I wonder where the technological age will lead humanity, I love having apps for my iPad, on my business trips for Dish. I use two apps everywhere I go, and they are fantastic as helpful tools of the trade. Yelp is amazing; sometimes a city is bigger than I can wrap my mind around. Dish Remote Access is a relaxing way to handle stressful situations; airport malfunctions with a movie on my iPad is a blessing (bye reality…) I have definitely benefited from using apps; I have had time to play on my off hours as well.

    I have Photosynth in my phone. I used it once for combining panoramic pictures. It’s almost the same as using photoshop.
