Road trip apps are an absolute must for anyone who loves to travel and who cannot simply live an hour without their Smartphone. What I love about apps is their dichotomous nature.

Use road trip apps as part of your long, painstakingly planned trip or just jump in the car and let them take on a journey of wonderment.
