TripIt Upgrades iPad App With Drag & Drop Plus More
TripIt® from Concur®, the world’s highest-rated travel-organizing app, announced significant updates to the TripIt iPad app. Travelers can now find and add plans to any upcoming trip with the new iOS 11 drag and drop feature, and have the ability to search through trips without leaving the home screen of their iPad. TripIt iPad users also have a new look and feel, and additional features that make it easy to plan how they’ll get around once they arrive.
“Travel can be stressful, especially when you’re planning a trip and trying to figure out where to go—and how to get there,” said Jen Moyse, director of product for TripIt from Concur. “We’ve focused on refreshing our iPad app to adapt to the way you travel. Next time you’re on your iPad powering through emails, researching the best places to go or organizing your calendar, TripIt can help you keep track of it all.”
TripIt’s newly revamped iPad app includes an updated look and additional functionality designed to make it even easier to navigate the TripIt app. Enhancements include a new editing tool, additional ways to share your travel plans with others, the ability to store travel documents and more features (most of which were previously available on iPhone only). With this iPad update, travelers can:
Add Plans with New iOS 11 Drag-and-Drop
iPad users can now drag and drop items from Calendar, Maps, Safari, Contacts and Photos into their TripIt account. Using the iPad’s multitasking mode, travelers can search for a restaurant, hotel or other point of interest—then drag a selected item and drop it into TripIt. Calendar invites, photos, and contacts can also be instantly added to any trip.
Look Up Travel Plans with Spotlight Search
Travelers who want to look up their travel plans can now access current or past trips from Spotlight search. Spotlight search can be used to look up a hotel they visited, or check when their flight takes off, for all current and upcoming trips as well as the previous 30 trips added to their TripIt account.
Get Where They’re Going, Faster
Popular TripIt features that were once only available on mobile phones are now available on the iPad. Travelers can easily find how to get from point A to point B with the Navigator tool, and quickly find ATMs and points of interest while traveling with Nearby Places.
TripIt Pro users will be able to use Go Now, a feature that tells travelers when it’s time to leave for the airport, from their iPads. If they are using their iPad while on a trip, they’ll also receive helpful terminal and gate reminders.
iOS 9 or higher is required to access the new iPad update. To use the new drag-and-drop capabilities, users must have an iOS 11 enabled iPad that supports drag and drop.
TripIt from Concur, the world’s highest-rated travel-organizing app, instantly organizes all travel plans in one place.
