Mobil Passport is a great app that stores all passport info for your party which you then send to USBP upon arrival in US airports which allows you to bypass customs lines when arriving by air. You basically fill out your customs cards electronically and they send you a confirmation code saying your approved to enter.

Oh man I wish I read this prior. I wonder how much time I've wasted in these lines.

Also translator apps, if possible that work offline, to translate English to whatever country you're visiting.

Some of my faves:

Hoteltonight: For booking a last minute hotel nearby (Say your flight got cancelled and want to quickly book something around the airport)
SeatGuru: For looking for the best seats on an aircraft
Mr Border: Border information and wait times for land crossings.
