Apps you should be using now: TripIt
TripIt mobile is one of my favorite apps or all time, this app is so good it almost seems too good to to be true. Seriously, if you travel, you should be using it. Instead of having to carry copies of your reservations, important addresses, contact info, and itineraries, you can keep all of that info in the palm of your hand accessible anytime.
When I get a travel confirmation email from my airline, hotel or rental car company, I just forward it them to firstname.lastname@example.org and TripIt adds maps, directions, route, weather, and more then sends a custom itinerary to my phone. When I am on the road I can check my trip info in seconds instead of taking time to dig into my bag for the reservation paperwork. The app will also provide gate info, flight status and even seat details from inside the app. Find out more about the TripIt app: http://www.tripit.com/
Just click the Orange TripIt app icon and the upcoming trip screen will open as shown on the right.
Tapping a trip opens the trip itinerary as shown on the left and tapping on the flight icon takes you to the flight info page with time, date, flight locator, seat assignments, gate info, weather and even seat details all in the TripIt app.
