A travel organizer app gets even better. TripIt.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, June 5, 2013

A travel organizer app gets even better.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Here comes vacation season and the folks at TripIt have been busy making improvements to make vacation or any kind of travel a little easier.   Brand new in the pro version of the app is a feature called Seat Tracker.   Edith Harbaugh is the head of product strategy…

“So what you do is you tell TripIt, I want an exit row, I want an aisle, I want a window.  Or if you’re with a family, you want three seats together.  Basically the idea is knowledge is power.  If we can let you know that a seat you want is available you can grab it and suddenly your flight is so much better.   So that’s part of our premium service, TripIt Pro, which is 49 dollars a year.

There are tons of other features and benefits and there is also a basic version of the app which is free.   TripIt is available on both iPhone and Android.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
