I’m racking up the frequent flyer miles in 2010. Las Vegas in January, San Francisco in May, and New York in August, and there are a few more flight times and hotel confirmations to track. That’s why TripIt has become a must-have app for me.
TripIt is the official Android app for TripIt.com, a useful tool for managing your travel plans. Forward the confirmation email from your airline/hotel and all accommodations will become available in an easy-to-manage itinerary. Rather than constantly search through your bag to review flight information, TripIt shows departure times, hotel address, and reminders about when you to check-in/out depending on your flight time. You can also share travel plans with others.
You can also manually add activities, so the app will then keep track of your meetings, dinners, events, and daily itinerary. For frequent travelers and scatterbrained individuals (guilty), TripIt simplifies the travel experience.
Price: Free, requires TripIt.com account (TripIt.com Pro account adds features for $69)
