I went on a trip recently and decided to give Google Trips a shot. And I am really glad I did.
The application turned out to be a very nice surprise with a great look and feel and a lot of nice features. One of the things I really liked was the application’s ability to scan your email log and identify out of them any trip info you might have.
The application then groups the information it digs out into your various trips, giving you a very nice and organised view where you have traveled in the past or where you will travel in the future (provided you have something booked).
Along with the trip, the application brings all emails and attachments it has retrieved info from, in case you need to reference them at some point.
You might say now that this is all very nice but what happens if I don’t have an internet connection while I am travelling? Well, this is not a problem at all. With Google trips you can download on your mobile phone (or device) all of the information that the app has put together for you. The info will be available for offline viewing through the app. Nice!
On my last trip I also made some online reservations for dinner, lunch and so on. Guess what. The reservations showed up under the Reservation section of the specific trip, within the app. The emails sent to me from the reservation service were logged by the app and organised under the trip.
Other things you can check in the app are things you should know for the city you are visiting, what you can do at this place, organised day plans, etc.
The application is very nicely made and above all very useful and for sure it will serve as my trip companion from now on. I have already deleted any other travel app of this sort. No competition.
You can get the application from the Google Trips website.
