Available for: iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Blackberry & Windows Phone 7.
Review (taken from itunes): “I travel 3-4 times per week. My objective was eliminating carrying paper copies of itineraries; air, hotel, and rental car. Completely eliminated paper. The important feature works fine, when confirming route directly from hotels or airlines. However, when my travel agents make the bookings, sending directly to me work email, data entry is required. Though this is fairly straight forward and simple. I have linked the flight track to tripit, providing instant access to flight updates. At this point, I do not see the advantage of the Pro version. All in, this is my most used and useful App.”
