San Francisco, CA—16 September 2011: TripIt, the leading mobile travel organizer from Concur (Nasdaq CNQR), today announced that its free Windows Phone App is available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Now, travelers with Windows Phone devices can access all their travel plans in one place, and share them with others.
TripIt makes organizing travel easier - no more frantic searches for flight numbers in the inbox. Instead, travelers have all trip details at their fingertips on their smartphone, calendar or online – for free. To get started, travelers simply forward travel confirmation emails from anywhere they book to email@example.com. TripIt automagically creates a simple, smart itinerary, combining travel plans with maps, driving directions and more - which can easily be shared with others.
The TripIt for Windows Phone app also supports TripIt Pro, the premium service which acts like a personal travel assistant while traveling. With all the benefits of TripIt - which makes it easy to organize and share travel information from one place - TripIt Pro goes much further by keeping the traveler in the know with status alerts and fare refund opportunities. The Windows Phone app provides TripIt Pro users with access to all their frequent traveler points in one place. Greater peace of mind while traveling is available for $49/year.
“Windows Phone is backed by a rich developer ecosystem that is creating a variety of quality apps and games, like TripIt, from Concur, which help users take advantage of the phone’s dynamic design,” said Todd Brix, senior director, Windows Phone Marketplace, Microsoft Corp. “TripIt is a great example of the rich applications that people will find on Windows Phone Marketplace to get the most out of their phone,” he continued.
The Windows Phone app adds to TripIt’s growing collection of smartphone and tablet-native apps, which includes iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry. Features were designed to leverage the Windows Phone platform, and includes the ability to add, edit and share trips.
