This website gives readers the inside scoop on airport lounges.

» Available for: iPhone and iPad

» Cost: Free

» What it does: Details everything there is to know about airport lounges, including day-use costs and amenities, as well as photos and reviews. Includes 600 lounges at the 60 busiest airports in the world.

» What's hot: This user-friendly app goes way beyond a general list of lounges. After LoungeBuddy asks you a few simple questions about your route and current memberships, credit cards and loyalty programs, it provides you with a list of lounges best suited to your trip. You can quickly filter for lounges that are free to you, have Wi-Fi, free cocktails and showers, children's rooms and more. I found the user reviews most helpful, especially those who shared that they found fast Wi-Fi, dirty areas or quiet corners. Create a free profile with your email address to start reviewing lounges yourself.

» What's not: If pushed, I'd say that it would be nice to have a visual clue for lounges that let you invite guests for one fee and a filter that lets you know which lounges are open. Maps of terminals and lounges are coming soon.

» Worth it? It would be silly not to see which free amenities are available to you. Also worth noting: It's designed for iOS7, but I tested it in iOS6 on an iPhone 4S.
