My on-the-go clients list travel amongst their top three all time stressors. What about you? To take a bit of stress out of your travels, I asked my crowd what their favorite apps are when they're on the road. These apps made the final cut.

2. Expensify

When you travel for business, you're collecting receipts, tracking mileage, and trying to remember every tip you gave so that you can accurately report expenses.

Expensify offers a simple scanning system for receipts, a mileage tracker that you can update on the go, and a place to note every cash expense. You can even keep track of billable hours with this app. Then, with a touch of a button, Expensify creates your expense report for you.
