There's an app for Vegas. Lots of 'em.

The Chicago Tribune reviews a handful of Vegas iPhone apps. Alas, however, there is no app yet for broadcasting a single, all-encompassing, cheek-rippling, bullhorn "NO THANK YOU!" to the smutter trolls who want to deliver STDs "direct to your room."

To help make your next trip to Las Vegas a winner, I tested iPhone apps (they also work on iPod Touch and iPad) that you can use to book a room, sharpen your card skills or even say, "I do." Many have an Android version that works on multiple platforms, including phones and tablets from Motorola, Samsung and Nokia.

As a longtime journalist in Southern Nevada, native Las Vegan Andrew Kiraly has served as a reporter covering topics as diverse as health, sports, politics, the gaming industry and conservation. He joined Desert Companion in 2010, where he has helped steward the magazine to become a vibrant monthly publication that has won numerous honors for its journalism, photography and design, including several Maggie Awards.
