    Thank you for the list of helpful travel apps! It’s nice to
    know I don’t have to stress as much traveling for my job at Dish, since I know
    these apps will have my back. You can’t forget about having entertainment on
    the go either, so do you have any fun recommendations? For entertainment
    purposes, I always have my Dish Remote Access app on my Android ready to go. In
    addition to a few other games I play, it helps kill the time by allowing me to
    watch my favorite shows, live or recorded, while I’m the go. Because of my
    Android and all of the wonderful travel apps that go along with it, I’m happy
    to say I haven’t had a stressful trip in months! :)
