The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (requires iOS 4.0 or later). Smart Traveler provides easy access to frequently updated official country information, travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, U.S. embassy locations, and more. Travelers can also set up customized e-tineraries to keep track of arrival and departure dates and make notes about upcoming trips. Additionally, the app provides a link for travelers to enroll in the Department's free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) so the State Department can better assist them in an emergency.

Information for the app comes from content that is also posted to www.state.gov and http://travel.state.gov. Please visit those websites for even more information on international travel, foreign policy, and the work of the U.S. Department of State.
