    Great read! TripIt and Google Translate are two travel apps
    I swear by when I go away on business with my job at Dish! As far as the others
    go, I have not tried them out before, but definitely will before my next trip! Entertainment
    is something I must have with me on the go as well, during long wait times in
    airports and such, so another app I swear by is Dish Remote Access. I use it as
    a time killer for layovers, since it lets me view all of my favorite shows from
    back home on my phone, live or recorded, no matter where I am in the world. What
    about you, do you have any entertainment apps you would recommend?
