Social App that Helps Me Work
By identity on May 16, 2008
This afternoon, I completed a travel itinerary that required three separate reservations - two through the AMEX travel website and one through a direct call from a hotel. I then simply sent the three reservation emails, untouched, to tripit.com.
Voila! As if by magic, I received an email with a link to a composite itinerary complete with day-by-day weather forecasts, maps and driving directions. I easily verifed that everything was in sync printed out a combined schedule. Plus, all the individual reservations showed up on my i-cal compatible calendar and I easily accessed the itinerary via the mobile Tripit site.
In addition to this capability, Tripit.com has a social networking capability, similar to Dopplr, that allows travellers to link to each other and share travel plans. Please email me at mgd [at] sun [dot] com if you would like to connect and keep abreast of each other's travel schedule.
This, my friends, is great stuff!
