If you're often hitting the trail, en route for parts unknown, the TripIt app/service might be a thing you're familiar with. This is a way to keep your flights, reservations, and everything else straight when you're on the road. The app has just gotten a big update to make that even easier.

The updated TripIt app seems mostly designed to make it easier to access the data attached to your journey. Here's the full changelog:

  • Introducing landscape view & a refreshed dashboard design for Android phones.
  • Maps and directions now open in-app for phones and tablets.
  • TripIt can pull travel plans directly from your inbox. Auto import is even easier to set up and available for more email domains.
  • Manage your account more easily - "About" and "Settings" pages have been streamlined.
  • Past trips are now available on tablets.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • In-app maps for phones and tablets. For tablets, in-app directions, too.

There are free and pro versions of TripIt, with the latter doing away with the ads. TripIt also sells a premium subscription service with real-time flight data.

    Still feels like it was designed in Froyo.

    I have been a Tripit user for years, but with this new update I was asked to review the Permissions before it updated. When I did review I was appalled by all the things it was asking for, access to my address book, it said it would email my contacts with out my permission, and many other intrusive things. I immediately uninstalled the Trip it app
