Pros & Cons:
- Organize your travel itineraries with tools for additional help
- Receive travel alerts with premium service
- Must have Android app for Travelers
- Difficult to sign-in using Google Apps account
TripIt Android App is an extension of the popular travel organization website TripIt.com. If you’re not familiar with TripIt, it’s a great website for travelers that conveniently organizes travel itineraries why adding a social aspect to it sharing recent travels with friends. They offer a premium service that allows you to receive alerts if your flight may be canceled or departure gate changed at the last minute.
The app however is fairly limited yet very useful for how it organizes travel itineraries in an easy to read fashion with icons versus a huge block of ugly text you typically get from your itinerary confirmation emails. Each line item can be drilled down into further detailed to give you a booking details, directions to/from your airport or hotel via Google Maps, estimated hotel check-in/check-out times, and more.
If you have friends using TripIt, you can see their shared travels as well as you can share your travels or not. The shared data consists of sharers’ name, to & from destinations and the miles racked up.

With all the hoopla that goes along with travel it’s great to have a utility that makes traveling more convenient. At least for me it eliminates fumbling around in my suitcase looking for important travel documents when I can whip out my Android phone.
Ease of Use:
The setup can be quite difficult if you’re trying to sign-in with a Google Apps account. The registration flips between the mobile website and the native app, somewhere in between the authorization token is lost. It took many attempts to register using my Google Apps account.
It’s much more of a breeze if you register for TripIt service directly.
Intended for use every time you travel.
The user interface and impeccable data organization is what gives this app value.
