    The Skype iPhone app will have you making calls around the globe with little fuss, and without picking up the bill for high roaming charges.

    Name: TripAdvisor

    Company: TripAdvisor

    Price: $Free

    The TripAdvisor app is a popular way to save some cash, find out where the best tourist attractions and restaurants, how best to travel between place to place and to book cheap hotels and flights. The most useful feature I find to be is the forums, where you can seek honest advice about your travel plans.
