Useful Smartphone Traveler Apps

While you want to decide on your own wether you need/want a smartphone while traveling or not here is a list of Apps I personally find very useful:

Currency a simple tool that converts any given sum into the corresponding value of other currencies of your choice. It only needs Internet access for downloading exchange rates, but works pretty fine off the grid, as long as the currency is not extremely volatile (which never happened to me).

Skobbler An inexpensive Navigation App, that works ok offline with GPS data and based on  openstreetmap. I bought all maps of the world for 12.- Euro.  And seriously  when was your last opportunity purchase the world at this price? I tried it out in Turkey and while it does not provide what you might expect from a fancy build in GPS it´s ok compared to what you might pay for a TomTom in a rental car every day.
