One of the app categories where I think Windows Phone still needs some work is in the travel category. We have Kayak and Travelocity, but even those two apps are limited in what they can do, so it’s nice to see a travel planning app come to the platform. TripIt is a popular travel planning service that allows users to turn all of their flight, hotel and car rental information into one easy itinerary. Read the marketplace description below for the full details:
TripIt organizes your travel plans in one place. Simply forward confirmations to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do the rest. Access all your flights, hotels, car rentals, activities, maps and more on your WP7.
Upgrade to TripIt Pro for peace of mind from check-in to baggage claim. Like a personal travel assistant, we’ll monitor and send you alerts for flight or fare changes. Plus, you can access all your reward accounts in one place and get additional travel perks.
While i’d still like to see more official airline and travel apps (Hotwire, Orbitz, Priceline…), the arrival of TripIt shows that the travel category is still growing and should fill out very soon. You can download the free ap by searching for “TripIt” on the Zune PC software or on your WIndows Phone.
