Can a trip planner work overtime as a travel journal and protect confidential documents too? Maybe.
Available for: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android
What it does: This app keeps all of your pertinent travel information — medical, passport, visa, flight, hotel, car rental information, photos and more — locked in a password-protected area on your Apple or Android device.
Cost: Free, for an introductory period.
What's hot: The password system worked for me, and I would feel safe leaving my information on the app. I hesitated only when I came to filling out my debit and credit card info. But it's all optional. I also liked the breadcrumbs that show your route.
What's not: I was excited about the journal aspect, but I couldn't find it. Perhaps they meant not a journal you could write in but, rather, a journal of your info. Even more frustrating was that I couldn't access all of Tripini's features. Only when I pretended to leave on a trip that started with today's date could I access the packing list and features area where I could store my tickets, lodging and car rentals info.
