    Great list, Alexander! I travel a lot for my job at DISH, and most of these apps have come in handy at one point or another. Another app that has come in handy during my travels is called DISH Remote Access. It streams live TV and recordings from my DVR at home, to my phone, tablet, or PC; it works over 3g, 4g, or WIFI. I have been in countless flight delays and layovers, and nothing has helped pass the time better than watching my favorite show or movie.
