    Thank you for the awesome app suggestions, Dee! I recently got promoted to a position at DISH that requires a ton of travel, and I have been looking for a few good apps to make life in the air a little easier. I have TripIt, but HotelsTonight and XE Currency look like they will be very helpful. I have found that bringing a little piece of home can ease the stress of traveling. I have been using the DISH Remote Access app to watch my Denver local news programs, even when I am on the other side of the world. Sometimes I can’t stream it live due to time differences but I got around that by recording the news to my DVR and watching it later. It would be a great app for your list.
