TripIt Launches Free Blackberry App

Popular Travel Service Now Available On BlackBerry, Android and iPhone Mobile Devices

SAN FRANCISCO, January 20, 2010 -- TripIt, the trip management company, today announced that TripIt is available to travelers using BlackBerryTM mobile devices. This free mobile app gives travelers access to all their travel plans right on their BlackBerry, no matter where their travel was booked.

TripIt travelers simply forward their travel confirmation emails to plans@tripit.com and TripIt automatically creates their master travel itineraries. With the TripIt for BlackBerry 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 free TripIt itinerary. TripIt for BlackBerry also supports features of the TripIt Pro premium service, including mobile flight alerts and alternate flight options.

"We've been beta testing our BlackBerry app with a group of international travelers for months and are now ready to give everyone the opportunity to use it," commented Will Aldrich, TripIt VP of Product. "We're also excited to include support to sync TripIt travel plans to the built-in BlackBerry calendar, which in turn syncs those plans to a traveler’s Outlook calendar."

The TripIt for BlackBerry Beta app is available for download now at www.tripit.com/uhp/blackberry and will be live in the BlackBerry App World soon. It supports BlackBerry operating system 4.3 or later, which includes nearly all BlackBerry devices released in the past several years.
