TripIt is an app for anyone who travels – whether extensively or occasionally. It helps you organise all your travel plans into one app.
All you have to do is link your email account to the app and forward on any airline reservation – hotel confirmation, hotel directions, car rental confirmation and even your restaurant reservations – to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then all you have to do is sit back and relax as all the information is stored in one place with separate itineraries for every destination. If you wish to make any amendments or include notes, recommendations, weather forecasts or links, there is an ‘add plans’ option you can use.
You can access the details from your tablet, smartphone (even without an Internet connection) or the TripIt website and sync it with your calendar.
There is also an option for you to share the trip details with family or friends and post your destinations on Facebook or LinkedIn.
TripIt Pro is available for $49 per year which includes ad-free usage, on-the-go flight alerts, status updates and more. This app was reviewed on a HTC Velocity 4G.
Pros: Consolidates all your travel plans into one app.
Cons: Added features are available at a cost.
Verdict: A must try app even if you travel once a year. Get it here: appmeister, Patrick Budmar, your review or the name of the app you would like to see reviewed.
