TripIt.com Gets “iPadified” with New Map View

By Aaron Friedman, Product Manager at TripIt

We’re always looking for new, smarter ways to organize all your travel plans in one place, and bring minute-by-minute details of your trip to your fingertips.

But we realize that sometimes the “where” matters more than the “when” – especially when you’re in a new place.

Inspired by TripIt’s iPad app, the new itinerary map view let’s you interact with your entire trip geographically. You can get the “lay of the land” and quickly create directions between your activities.
