It is most useful application it tells you were you are and you can mark your destination so between two marks it will give you complete map, you can even share your current location with your friends and family member. e.g. if you are going for a meeting and you are travelling by road and your colleague wants to know your location so from that location that can get your estimated time of arrival, this facility in google maps is called Google Latitude.

2. Triplt

Travel Management is made easy with this application you can keep the record of everything like flight confirmation number, hotel confirmation numbers.
