The TripIt travel itinerary app has received an update that makes it significantly more useful during bouts of intermittent Internet connectivity. Version 3.6 brings in the ability to make edits while offline. The app will then sync changes automatically once you reconnect.

This feature tops the change log, but it's not what TripIt highlighted when I fired up the app. No, that was the new Enhanced Point Tracker feature that will notify you whenever your rewards points are about to expire. Can't have that happen, now can we?

This release also slips in the power to add or remove travelers, viewers, and planners on trips. Here's the list of changes for regular users of the service.

What's new:

  • Offline editing now lets you make and sync changes at any time.
  • Easily add and remove travelers, viewers, and planners so trip participants stay up-to-date.
  • Enhanced Point Tracker features for TripIt Pro. New enhancements alert you when your reward programs points are close to expiring and allow you to manually add unsupported rewards programs so everything can be tracked in one place.
  • Better organize trips by editing unfiled items on the Android phone and tablet.
  • Various bug fixes.
