App check:
TripIt [non-legal][travel]

A few times each month I highlight web or mobile apps that are useful to lawyers. Sometimes the apps are developed specifically for lawyers and other times are non-legal apps that are nevertheless useful for lawyers.

Today’s app is TripIt. TripIt is a great organizational tool for lawyers who travel frequently. This app allows you to store all of your travel information in one place and provides you with a vast array of necessary information about your trip.

So, instead of printing out your itineraries or storing your travel information in your email account, you simply forward your flight, hotel, and other confirmation emails to your TripIt account and TripIt takes it from there. The app automatically organizes the information into a single trip itinerary. Additional information is added as well, including weather data, maps and transportation information, such as driving directions.

Another nice feature is the ability to share your itineraries via email with family and friends. The app also has a social component. Using your social networks, it links you to your connection who also use TripIt and then advises you if one or more of your connections will be in the place at the same time as you.

This app is free. You can download the iPhone and iPad apps here, the Blackberry app here, the Windows Phone 7 app here, and the Android app here.
