I am an avid iPhone user. I began traveling extensively for my job in April (flying weekly from Atlanta to Chicago) and I needed something that could track my flights and hotels and put those flights on my iCal calendar which syncs to my iPhone. I found the perfect application, but you don't need an iPhone to use it, the Trip Case web application can be used stand alone.
TRIPCASE is a service that allows you to load all of your travel information into one spot and provides companion support for iCal, iPhone, iPad, iTouch, and e-mail alerts. By logging on their website at www.tripcase.com and creating a user account you can load your travel information or even try and have it load it for you from several popular travel sites such as Expedia (although I never really got it to work, maybe I wasn’t patient enough for the information to be available).
Better yet, if you own an iPhone, or an IPad with 3G (iTouch will also work but you must be in WiFi) you can enter your travel plans via the very easy to use iPhone application, which is FREE (and free is good).
Download the application to your iPhone or iPad Simply enter your flight information (airline, flight number, date, confirmation number (optional) into the application instead of using the website.
Regardless whether you entered your travel information via the web or the iPhone application Trip Case will prove you up to date information about the flight departure/arrival times, and gate information (regardless of airline) via alerts to your e-mail address of record. Merely set this up on their website.
The best thing I like about this service is that it will interface all your travel details into iCal automatically. Merely log onto the website and select the SETTINGS tab and set up the iCal interface.
Create an automatic refresh in iCal or manually refresh the subscribed calendar after you add new trip information into Trip Case.
Now go travel and stay informed! I simply can’t travel without this application.
