I must say that I have become an Apple fanboy -- I am a huge fan of the iPhone and iPad. I feel like Batman accessing a virtual array of applications to help me on my journey of being a entrepreneurial crime fighter. Here are my personal picks for must have applications for CEOs and entrepreneurial road warriors.

2. TripIt - My buddy Greg Brockway runs this fantastic company. Its a free application and perfect for the road warrior. You can create kick ass efficient itineraries3. FlightTrack Pro - ths cost is $4.99 and $9.99 Pro. I love this application because it is your personal travel agent which includes a graphical tracker of your flight. I have actually used this application while I have been in the air over my Alaska Air wifi connection.
4. Take Me To My Car is a fantastic application. It does exactly what it says -- it helps you find your car. I am constantly lost in parking garages.
