Consider Abercrombie & Kent's debut iPad app, which is packed with jaw-dropping images and vivid video, an inspiration destination. Travelers can view 26 two-minute virtual visits from the outfitter's adventures to exotic places ranging from Petra, Jordan to Pushkar, India. The interactive app allows users to browse experiences by categories such as "adventure travel" and "family," or via lush photos in a fetching mosaic. The map function is one of its more appealing features. Pinpoint wish-list destinations or chronicle past trips on the personalized map, which can be exported to Google Earth for a satellite tour. Once it's installed (download time is five to 10 minutes), the new app shows off the outfitter while showcasing the world. abercrombieandkent.com/ipda-travel-apps.
