If you've ever tried to organize a trip, no matter how big or small, without the help of a personal assistant, you know what a hassle it can be.  I've been using a free web-based service for the past couple of years, called Tripit.com, and have been so happy with it that I upgraded last summer to the 'pro' paid version. Tripit.com will make your life easier if you travel.

TripIt is a free travel app that keeps your TripIt itineraries and trip planning information at the ready. And, now, for my friends who use BlackBerry phones, Tripit.com has just released it's new Blackberry app.  So easy to use: book a flight on Expedia or any online site, and forward the confirmation email to plans@tripit.com and within seconds you'll get an email from Tripit.com telling you your itinerary is ready!  Do the same with hotel reservations, auto reservations. Poof!  All neatly added to your personal itinerary.

You can easily add any other plans, meetings, events -- anything at all -- with their details, and your itinerary keeps it all in one tidy location. Includes the ability to upload and attach most doc types (PDF, DOC, etc).  Maps are automatically attached, for your convenience, for your hotel, your meetings, etc.

Access all this information with your browser from any computer, or from your free iPhone or BlackBerry app. I can't tell you how many times I've done a quick check on my iPhone as I'm hopping into a cab and grabbing info about the hotel I need to go to.  No more rummaging around for a paper schedule somewhere.

Give it a try. You'll love it. Highly recommended.
