I’ll be doing much more travel this year for both work and just for fun. I figured that I need some kind of way to organize my details so I gave TripIt a spin. TripIt is a trip planner where you can store all of your hotel / flight / itinerary information.
The email integration is what makes TripIt killer. Last night I booked a hotel for the conference I’m going to at the end of the month and all I needed to do to import it into TripIt was forward an email. It detected my trip dates, hotel information, etc. You can also import past emails automatically.
TripIt also has a few mobile apps. I installed the Android version for my Droid X so now I’ll be able to stay organized while I’m out too.
On a related note: I’m speaking at eTech on January 31st about BuddyPress in education. More details soon!
