2. Hotel Tonight
Why we love it: If you’ve always wanted to stay at that swank (and pricey) hotel downtown, here’s your chance to book a last-minute, romantic stay. Hotel Tonight shows users the day’s best deals for unsold hotel rooms all over the world, and you can learn all about your room and securely book your stay with just a few taps. (Caution: Looking at beautiful hotels in different countries may cause serious wanderlust — just saying.)

Why we love it: When you’re not sure if you’d prefer a casual rib joint (where it’s okay to have barbecue sauce all over your face) or an upscale rooftop tapas bar, all you need to tell Hoppit is who you’re dining with and the kind of atmosphere you’re looking for and the rest is taken care of.
