I am on an app kick lately and today’s app was inspired by my post, 35 Apps for Meeting and Event Planners.
Shortly after the post, I got an email that said I should check out TripCase as an alternative to the travel app TripIt….. Now, I have to be honest and tell you that I had never heard of TripCase but since I am the curious sort, I figured I should dive right in and check it out because travel apps were never my thing…. I was thinking that maybe this was because I had just never found one that I liked.
Maybe this one would finally change my mind.
So, What is TripCase
TripCase allows you to organize and keep track of all of your upcoming travel stuff. What kind of stuff? Stuff like everything. All of your itineraries, flights, directions, contacts, rental car info and more. TripCase is even an award winner.

The Bottom Line
So, what do I think? Am I using the app? Yes. I am using it and yes, I actually like it (whoo hoo!)….From adding others to my plans so they are notified and getting real time flight updates, TripCase is really handy and might be a better option than just saving everything to Evernote or DropBox.
