I have always found the act of traveling to be a hassle. You have to keep track of all your
transportation, reservations and
receipts. It's just a pain.  That's why I am in love with TripIt!

For those of you who travel for business or pleasure and want a hassle free way to keep track of all the details Tripit has applications that do all of that and more. Tripit collects all those pesky little details and puts it into an easy-to-use master itinerary.  Not only that, Tripit throws in maps, some local attraction suggestions, a few weather reports. You can access this itinerary online or from a mobile device, so keeping track of it couldn't be easier.

It also connects to your social networks to let people you are connected to thorough facebook, twitter and linkedin know that your traveling.  There is also a bit of a gaming side to this app as well pushed through a travel ranking system. One of my favorite features is when you plan a public trip to a city that you have friends in it sends them an alert and lets them plan a date with you.

Don't plan a trip again without Tripit.  http://www.tripit.com
