Jose Iniguez is TakePart Live's Interactive Producer. Prior to Pivot: MTV and RYOT News.

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 recommendations -- as featured on the Wednesday, Nov. 27 episode of TakePart Live -- were handpicked by our special guest expert, Urbanism editor at Gizmodo Alissa Walker.

  • Just Landed – helps you perfectly time an airport pick-up with family and friends.

  • TripIt – Builds an itinerary for you by forwarding it confirmation emails for flights, car rentals, hotels, etc.

  • TravelNerd – a comprehensive app on airport information and amenities.
