Appy-Picking Month: TripIt

TripIt (Free) is an app I have praised before. It's relevant here because hopefully a number of you are planning to go to the ASHA Convention in Atlanta next month, and I figured I would give it a shout-out again. TripIt is a free web-based service that keeps track of all aspects of your travel itinerary: flights, hotels, rental cars, etc. Once you download the app and create an account (in-app or on the web), each time you receive a travel confirmation email (use the same email for your bookings and TripIt), you simply forward the email to plans@tripit.com, and TripIt builds your itinerary.

Interestingly, I am convinced I have a language (or executive function? Sarah Ward, please chime in) issue related to temporal concepts. Before TripIt, I have arrived in Irish cities only to realize that I made a lodging reservation for the following night. I need to check calendars many, many times. My reference to days of the week during discussions is inevitably problematic. It is good that I can check travel plans many, many times, all in one place, TripIt. I would literally be lost without it.
