LOMAP Tip of the Week

LOMAP Tip of the Week: Your Monthly App Review for the Mobile Lawyer

Do you travel a lot? Do you hate trying to locate the paper confirmation for your flight or hotel in your bag as your standing at the counter? Or are you the one that hates thumbing through your email to locate the confirmation? Whether you travel for work or for your own personal vacation, TripIt may be the app for you. This app allows you to have access to all your travel information right on your mobile device. Just forward your confirmation emails to TripIt at and TripIt will instantly create an itinerary for you. Your flight information, hotel, and rental car reservations are all in one accessible spot. You can customize the itinerary with maps and directions, and you can also share your itinerary with someone via email. I recently used the app on a trip and found that it is easy to use and convenient. This app is available for free on iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Window Phone 7.
