TripIt Launches Free Android App

Popular Travel Service Now Available On New Android Mobile Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, November 23, 2009 -- TripIt, the trip management company, announced today that TripIt is available to travelers using mobile devices powered by the Android mobile operating system backed by Google. This free mobile app gives travelers access to all their travel plans right on their Android device, no matter where their travel was booked.

Travelers simply forward their travel confirmation emails to plans@tripit.com and TripIt automatically creates their master travel itineraries. With the TripIt for Android app, a traveler then just clicks to check flight status on any airline, view a confirmation number from any rental car supplier, or get directions to their hotel, restaurant, meeting or anything that’s part of their TripIt itinerary. TripIt for Android also supports features of the TripIt Pro premium service, including mobile flight alerts and alternate flight options.

"We had such a great response to our iPhone app that we quickly began development of a mobile app for Android," commented Gregg Brockway, TripIt co-founder and president, "and we're excited to release this free app just in time for the holiday travel season."
