TripIt Releases Apps for Blackberry & Android

TripIt Releases Apps for Blackberry & Android

The TripIt app for iPhone was so popular, the travel website decided to develop apps for other platforms. Now, TripIt is available for both the Blackberry and the Android phones. The apps are free, but you do have to sign up for an account at (don't worry, the account is free, too).

The app lets you access your travel plans on the go, from your phone. Sure, lots of apps do this, but some say it's a lot more organized, particularly for a free app, than lots of the ones out there. It allows one-click access to your hotel, airline and other locations from your itinerary whenever you have a question or problem. Simply forward your confirmation emails from any airline or hotel and the app will organize your plans into one simple itinerary that lets you access and share your information with the click of a button. Also, the app sends you alerts and information about potential travel delays.

At the website,, a blogger talks about how a friend of hers used the app and received a flight cancellation notice from the app about half an hour before the airline notified her. She was able to get another flight to the same destination at the last minute before the other passengers from her trip attempted to do the same.
