It's common to have some downtime while on business travel too. Road warriors often want to know what attractions are nearby for a quick visit, or that they may want to see with friends and family on a future trip. It used to be that options for such were limited to the ads printed in the hotel magazines or brochures stacked in a lobby rack.

They can also buy and change plane and train tickets and score the best rates at hotels. Here are 50 Android apps that can help you make the most of your next business trip or vacation.
