Trying TripIt

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!
