I loved George Clooney in ‘Up in the Air’ what a perfect roll for him to play and it reminded me of my life. TravelTracker Pro is my personal travel assistant and is the best app I’ve found for planning out my business trips for Dish. I travel frequently so I find that Expensify is such a useful app in keeping all my records straight even linking to my credit card. In fact, all the apps listed are fantastic for the avid traveler briefcase in hand but what about stress. I usually whip out my Dish Remote Access app that I make sure is on my iPad since it gives me access to all my content at home especially my movies on my DVR. When airport delays or limited hotel TV options are an issue, this app takes care of the problem. Although I’d rather be traveling with George Clooney, I’ll keep my iPad as my travel companion on every trip.
