Nowadays, you can negotiate most practical tasks from the comfort of your smartphone, thanks to the wonderful world of apps. In today's burgeoning market of hi-tech innovation, these tools aren't merely useful - they're also slick, beautifully designed and fulfil a purpose you didn't even realise could be negotiated via smartphones and tablets; repelling insects, say, or locating where exactly the sun's rays will fall throughout the day.

We've summarised our favourite travel apps out there right now, from established classics like Skyscanner and HotelTonight to moneysavers such as Free Wi-Fi Finder and exciting newbies on the block. Flex your fingertips and get jet set in style with our selection of clever tools, covering everything from photographic language translation to virtual postcards and jet lag reduction, below:
