Time to get the charger out, your smartphone has been busy! Today we announced that overall mobile usage has doubled – and Android usage in particular has tripled – in one year among TripIt users.
Also, Android 1.9 is now available for download in the Marketplace. The design changes will help you find important trip information quickly. Other highlights:
- Links and phone numbers in your notes are now fully clickable, so you can quickly make a call, right from the app.
- You now have more options to preserve memory when you’re not running the app.
- TripIt Pro users can customize reward point expiration alerts.
“It’s exciting to watch mobile adoption take off this year, as innovation in the industry heats up,” said Gregg Brockway, Executive Vice President and General Manager of TripIt. “Each generation of smartphone provides even more opportunities for us to improve life on the road for travelers. The idea of a personal assistant in the palm of your hand – one that organizes important trip details, or sends helpful reminders and alerts – is becoming a reality.”
What do you think of the Android app’s new look?
