TripIt Brings First All-in-One Travel Organizer to Google Glass Trip Details and Flight Status Displayed When They're Needed Most, Helping Travelers Focus on the World Around Them
SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TripIt from Concur (Nasdaq: CNQR), the world's highest-rated travel organizing app with more than 10 million users, today ushered in a new way for travelers to access all their travel plans on Glass and get timely trip information at eye level when faced with gate changes, flight delays and cancellations. TripIt was selected to bring its all-in-one travel organizer to Glass along with an exclusive group of travel partners.
A prominent addition to TripIt's suite of native apps, Glassware makes it even easier for travelers to engage with the world around them. TripIt users now have the option to keep their smartphone tucked away, while all the information needed to make their journey as smooth as possible is in sight. Flight details are displayed conveniently upon arrival at the airport, followed by a car rental, hotel, and any other travel reservations previously forwarded to email@example.com.
For TripIt Pro users, TripIt Glassware presents real-time flight status notifications at the right moment throughout the trip, including: check-in reminders, gate changes, flight delays, and more. In one tap, a traveler can view alternate flights to find a faster way home or squeeze in a few extra hours in a favorite destination.
"TripIt and Google share a common goal to organize information and create technology to make people's lives better," said Rich Adams, Head of Mobile for TripIt. "With TripIt, we're always thinking about how traveling should work in pursuit of 'The Perfect Trip.' Imagine being able to simultaneously enjoy a cup of coffee, carry your luggage through the airport and stay informed of changes. All your flight status updates are presented in plain view, freeing up your hands and making it easier to stay engaged with the world around you."
TripIt Glassware is now available for download in Google Play. While TripIt organizes travel plans in one place for free, a subscription to TripIt Pro is required for flight status alerts and notifications ($49/year). A free 30-day trial of TripIt Pro is available at http://tripit.com/pro.
