Traveling for business doesn't have to be a hassle. Having your smartphone in hand and the right apps will make business travel a breeze.

Inner Circle Labs compiled a list of must-have apps to help travelers avoid holiday-season travel headaches and ensure smooth sailing. All of these apps are available for both iPhone and Android devices.

  • Check MySeatFinder before you board your plane. This app can help you snag a better seat after you've booked your ticket, even if you booked your travel plans late. After you've identified an open spot, SeatGuru automatically books the seat for you.
  • Instead of rushing across the airport to find the gate to your connecting flight, use GateGuru to guide you straight there. The app will tell you where you need to be so you can make a mad dash to the gate as soon as your plane lands.
  • When you arrive at your destination, Room77 can help you find a hotel. If your flight is delayed, the app can look for open rooms at nearby hotels if you need to spend the night , and it keeps all of your hotel-reservation information in one place.
  • Want to document your trip? InstaPlace is an app that uses GPS coordinates to stamp location information onto your photos, and can even turn your pictures into fun postcard designs. Meanwhile, InstaWeather will stamp weather-report information onto your photos to give friends and family members a better idea of what it's like to be where you are.
