Track your travel itineraries with the TripIt Android app

by Kate Currin

If you are a forgetful tourist or frazzled business voyager who tends to stress out about traveling for fear of losing your pertinent travel information, like hotel reservations and flight details, then the free TripIt - Travel Organizer app is an ideal mobile travel companion for you. The premise of the app is straightforward. Simply send your travel confirmation information via email to plans@tripit.com, and the app computes your travel itinerary in one handy place.

This is perfect if you like to hunt for deals from various travel websites. You can book your stay with hotels.com, and your flight with orbitz.com, and TripIt will store your information in one handy app on your Android phone. And even more convenient, if you use Gmail or Google apps, you can set TripIt to automatically grab your travel information. The app also backs up to tripit.com, so if your phone is lost or stolen, you can find the nearest computer to access your travel information.

The layout of the app is very easy to use with three handy tabs: "Trips," "Points" and "Network." Trips lets you organize business from personal travel. Points is an upgrade option for TripIt Pro that allows frequent travelers to earn reward points. And last, but not least, the Network section allows you to share travel plans with co-workers and leisurely travel companions.

Overall, it's a travel timesaver when you can access all your documents in one place, versus hunting through your already overflowing email inbox for several travel itineraries.
