Get from the airport to the city with no drama.

Why we like it -- Filled with advice on transportation options for 460 airports around the world, this app does a great job of balancing comprehensiveness with simplicity. Find an airport with a quick scan of the alphabetized listings, and see how to get to different points of a city.

The app also tells you how frequently trains and shuttles run and when they operate, and it lists the going rates for cab rides to different locations, as well as acceptable tip amounts.

Improvements we'd like to see -- The airport listings, while deep, include some puzzling misses. (It ignores Hawaii's Kona International Airport, the Big Island's primary airport, but includes Hilo.) Android and BlackBerry versions would greatly improve this app's usefulness, as would tips for spotting the proper transportation signs in that city's home language.
