TripCase for iPad, Yahoo Mail Gets Tablet View
Remember when you would book a trip, and your travel agent would give you all your documents for a trip in one leather tri-fold case? FF to today…travel agents along with everyone else use QR codes and email to control our travel plans. So if you want to organize it in a digital way, TripCase is here. Put in your confirmation numbers, reservations and more into this program. You can even share with others.
However, in this mobile world, we still have an unorganized planner – most of our details are stored in a series of email addresses and text messages.
That is where TripCase – Sabre Inc. comes in. This not only allows you to plan for current trips but also allows you to put future trips into your planner even if you haven’t purchased tickets yet.
With Tripcase, you put your details in as you go – Flight plan, car info, hotel, dinner reservations, and more. You can even combine bookings from multiple sources – travel agency, hotel, more.
I have put a couple of my trips into Tripcase to keep track of things. For flight, I simply entered in my confirmation number and the info came up. I could view my seats, see which terminal or gate I am at, departure and arrival times and even the weather of the cities I am in.
The same happened with hotel reservations. I put in the confirmation number and it populated into TripCase.
With the share option, I can send my information to another person via email. I sent Jennifer my details of this upcoming trip so she knows when my plane leaves and when it arrives.
FInally, if I want to add it to my calendar, I can choose to make a snapshot of my tripcase and download it to import to a calendar. If I turn on the subscription method, I can instantly update calendars.
TripCase works with all iOS devices, Android devices and even through the web portal.
I also talk about the new version of Yahoo Mail that just came out earlier in the day – utilizing the iPad screen. With it, you can organize your mail better and even work with other Yahoo! apps.
