One day, we’ll need more travel apps like TripIt.com, yet so far, they rank high on our list with their assistance in our organisation needs. Not everyone is able to whip up a travel plan based solely on their travel confirmation emails, but TripIt will automatically create a master itinerary plan for you when you can’t, by using the information – travel confirmation email – you send to them via firstname.lastname@example.org or which you import from your Gmail, Google Apps, Outlook.com, or Yahoo! mail inbox. You can share this master plan with anyone and it’ll sync with the rest of the events on your own calendar, and displays maps and driving directions to your destination.
