Even with the Internet making it possible to telecommute anywhere in the world from the comfort of your own home, most business people are still going to be taking physical business trips for the foreseeable future. There are a lot of companies that haven't seen the light yet, and a lot of business interactions that will always need to be done in person.

That's a problem because unlike vacationers who have room for error, business travelers often find themselves with tight travel deadlines, last-minute scrambles and plenty of stress. While technology can't get you out of a trip, it can make it smoother, plus save you some money.

Let's take a look at 5 great apps every business traveler should have in their phone.

When you're in a strange city, hopping online isn't as easy as it should be. Sure there are Wi-Fi hotpots everywhere, but if you're in a rush you don't have time to guess.

WifiMapper (Android, Apple; Free) lists all free and pay-to-use Wi-Fi spots near you so you don't have to do that panicked march around an unfamiliar neighborhood or city block. Instead, you will know exactly where to go and how far it is from you.
