Every week we show you some apps, sites, and services that do more than monitor your favorite YouTube cat videos -- they give you high-tech solutions for real life problems. We call it the "Tech Affect."

This week's smartphone apps -- as featured on the Wednesday, Oct. 16 episode of 'TakePart Live' -- help you get the most out of your travel, whether that's reducing your carbon footprint or donating to charity while on foot.

  • Green Travel Choice - Helps you choose modes of transport wisely and track and report emissions and routes.
  • Charity Miles - Earn money for charity when you walk, run, or bike.
  • History Here - An interactive travel guide to thousands of historic locations across the United States.

What are some of your favorite apps? Tweet @TakePartLive with the hashtag #TechAffect. We'll use them in an upcoming segment!
