Every day I take a look at what I am doing and ask myself, is there a better way to do this? Technology is allowing improvements in our everyday life, it just takes a little time upfront to find and use these improvements effectively and efficiently. One of the more common current technological advances that if used appropriately and consistently are various apps available on smart phones. Please do not confuse time savings discussed below with the time sucking apps also available, such as Angry Birds and other popular games! 🙂 As I have mentioned in my first blog, if you can find efficiencies in one part of your life, it will leave time for other interests you may have (like finding out how to beat level 1 of Carnival Upheaval in Angry Birds Rio, one of my most time sucking apps, but hey its FUN!)
This blog is a continuation of a blog I wrote earlier in January 2012. I came across a great travel app that I wanted to expand upon. It is the app called TripIt and is one of the easiest ways to not only build your travel itinerary, but to have all your information at the click of a button. TripIt makes it easy to organize trip details and build travel itineraries across multiple travel sites. It also automatically includes tools to get maps, directions, and weather as well as options to book restaurants, theatre tickets, activities, and more through the travel itinerary.
Below is a brief video overview of how TripIt works and how it can help you have a successful, rewarding, and more relaxing trip.
Another great thing is you can currently get TripIt for FREE, TripIt Pro for $39/year, $ TripIt Business for $29/month. It is available on Apple, Android, and Desktop. For more information on TripIt please visit www.tripit.com!
I will continue in the future to pass on any additional items that I either stumble across or are referred to that will help you create an effective and efficient life! If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for future topics, please send me a comment below! 🙂
