Travel iPhone Apps :: TripIt

tripitRecently I wrote about the art of consolidating guidebooks, travel docs and maps using apps; and boy-oh-boy, does this next app make the iPhone indispensable!  Forget the multi-page travel folders with hotel, flight, train and car rental confirmations, now there's an app that combines and gathers all your travel plans into one nicely packaged "app-tinerary." TripIt organizes your trips and saves trees. How green! This helpful app follows in the footsteps of, a travel itinerary generating site launched in 2007.  And here's a bit of travel trivia for you, guess who is one of the company's executives: Hotwire co-founder Gregg Brockway.  Hum, this guy seems to know a thing or two about spotting great business ideas.

I'm using the TripIt app for my upcoming trips to Eastern Canada and Cali (and hopefully Australia) and I couldn't be happier with the result.  After I took 1-minute to set up my account, all I did was forward my flight, hotel and car confirmation emails to and voila, customized travel itinerary all in one place, with included maps. Genius. How did I travel without it?
