Keeping Tabs on Travel: TripIt Now Available on the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 and 7.0 Plus Travelers with New Tablets Can Organize Trips from Anywhere
SAN FRANCISCO and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- from ShowStoppers @ CES 2012 -- TripIt, the leading mobile trip organizer from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), today announced that TripIt for GALAXY TAB 10.1 and 7.0 Plus is now available on Samsung Apps, giving travelers with new tablets an easy way to organize and view trip plans. TripIt for Samsung GALAXY Tab devices introduces new itinerary-driven maps and the ability to view multiple layers of travel details - including air, car, hotel and more - all in one place.
Trip Details Organized for Flexible Viewing
Travelers have the option of exploring their itineraries in two layers at all times, which makes it easy to dive into details like confirmation numbers or seat assignments, while maintaining an eye on the full trip schedule. The other option is to view a list of all trips, alongside a single itinerary overview. Also, new with TripIt for Samsung GALAXY Tab devices is the ability to view a list of all trips in landscape or portrait mode.
Enhanced Maps Make it Easy to Navigate Trips Geographically
TripIt for Samsung GALAXY Tab devices makes it easy to dynamically view and navigate maps, directly from the itinerary. For example, when the traveler selects a flight, the airport location will light up on the map, and they can choose to get directions.
"Our travelers prefer native apps, so we're happy to add Samsung's hot new tablets to our growing family of smartphone and tablet apps," said Gregg Brockway, Executive Vice President and General Manager of TripIt. "Tablets present an opportunity to rethink how travelers engage with their travel plans, so we're excited to see our emphasis on maps take hold."
TripIt is available for Android devices, as well as iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone. For information on where to download, visit http://tripit.com/uhp/mobile.
