Flight Radar 24 Pro

Live out your air traffic control fantasies with this app. It turns your iPhone or iPad into an air traffic radar device. Some wonder how this is allowed in a terrorist-fearing world but somehow it accurately tracks a plane's movements in real time. If you want to see your loved one's whereabouts over Asia (or just confirm that your 5am wake up is justified, not delayed) this is the app to have. It has been the most popular travel app in more than 50 countries.

Hear Planet

Like an all-knowing travel companion, this is a talking travel guide on your phone and in your pocket. Difference is, you can pause or rewind if need be. Covering more than 300,000 attractions all over the world from landmarks to historical sites to places to eat and drink. It uses your location services to work out where you are and what you are near. Try it on your local area – you may look at your neighbourhood in a new light. 

Packing Pro

Be reminded to take your brolly to London and your mosquito repellent to Tanzania with this nanny-like app. Based on destination criteria such as temperature, washing machine availability and who will be making food, this phone tool develops a suitcase list you can tick off as well as customise and build your own. This highly rated app is no friend to the weigh-in luggage scales but it will ensure you are never without a toothbrush.
