Frommer's travel tools provides nine handy iPhone apps in one

Frommer's just released their newest iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch application - Frommer's Travel Tools. Their previous applications were mobile versions of their guidebooks, but this newest application acts as a 9-in-1 travel companion.

The app offers the following tools:
  • Tip calculator
  • Packing list
  • Postcards
  • Currency converter
  • Unit converter
  • Time translator
  • Travel trivia
  • City guides Flashlight
  • "Apps we love"
The best part of the application is the price - $0. Unlike some other travel companion apps, the Frommers app is surprisingly comprehensive. The tip calculator lets you split the check, and select the required tip level. The currency calculator can download the latest rate charts, and the postcard feature lets you pick images from a large collection of Frommer's photos.

All in all, a great little tool to have on your phone. You'll find the Frommer's Travel Tools in the App store, or on the Frommer's Mobile app site.
