TripIt launches iPad app

TripIt already has mobile apps for the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry platforms. Now they decided to dedicate some attention to the iPad users and the result is a new app that fully takes advantage of the large screen Apple’s tablet rocks.

TripIt for iPad allows users to access all their trip reservations in one place, including air, hotel, entertainment and more. Moreover, there’s a new mapping feature along with GPS-enabled driving directions, airport information, and even seat assignments, “all designed to make traveling easier.”

Apparently more than 70% of TripIt users own or plan to purchase the iPad, representing a considerable group of people.

Even if you’re not an existing TripIt user, you can become one right from within the application and instantly access all your itineraries at-a-glance and explore them on a map. While in the mentioned map view, you will be able to see airports, hotels, ground transportation, restaurants and entertainment venues. Moreover, you can check open seats and seat assignments, alternate flights, as well as airport terminal information.

Sounds worth a try, especially when you consider the cost – TripIt is available as a free download. There’s also the ad-free version of application, which could be yours for 4 bucks.
