TripIt’s New Card View for iPhone Displays Travelers’ Relevant Information at the Right Time During the Trip
Flatter design now presents active itinerary items upfront, offers an improved TripIt Pro alerts center, and uses Google Maps for directions
SAN FRANCISCO, 16 September 2013 – TripIt, the leading mobile travel organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), now features a new, card-centric design for its iPhone app, which displays the most relevant trip information right when travelers need it.
Upgraded with a flatter design, the new TripIt for iPhone allows travelers to view itinerary items by swiping fluidly between cards, and to jump back to the main TripIt dashboard with just one click.
Additional updates to TripIt for iPhone include Google Maps as the default client for maps and directions, and streamlined, easier-to-read notifications in the TripIt Pro alerts center. A pairing with the iPhone’s gyroscope also introduces playful touches like gently drifting clouds that respond when the device is tilted.
“The new card view layers on a more contextual experience for travelers,” says Rich Adams, head of mobile for TripIt. “Open the TripIt app, and you’ll see flight and gate details to guide you in the airport; hotel directions and rental car confirmation then appear after landing. By anticipating what information a user needs to access, TripIt is now even more helpful to travelers.”
To experience the new TripIt card view, update or download TripIt’s iPhone app from the App Store. To get started as a new user, simply forward any flight, hotel, car rental or travel confirmation email to email@example.com to have TripIt organize your travel plans for you.
