TripIt’s New iMessage Features Keep Everyone In The Loop

September 20, 2017 Apps No Comments Email Email

TripIt® from Concur®, the world’s highest-rated travel-organizing app, today added dynamic updates to TripIt for iMessage. These new enhancements make it easy for travelers to keep friends, family and colleagues up to date about their travel plans, even as changes happen.

“All you have to do is add your plans to TripIt and share them through TripIt for iMessage—we’ll take care of the rest,” said Jen Moyse, director of product for TripIt from Concur. “With dynamic updates, there’s no need to resend your trip details once you have booked the hotel, or added a dinner reservation.”

The new iOS 11 addition also allows TripIt Pro users to share their real-time flight status through iMessage. Anytime a TripIt Pro user’s flight changes—whether that’s a cancellation, delay or gate change—TripIt for iMessage will refresh with the latest information. This gives the person with whom the flight was shared the ability to check the flight’s current status, directly within Messages.

“Whether you’re coordinating a meetup with a colleague or trying to figure out if your friend’s flight is landing on time, TripIt for iMessage now gives you all the information you need. All you have to do is check your text messages,” continued Moyse.

How it Works

TripIt for iMessage makes sharing travel plans as easy as sending a text. It allows TripIt users to send all or part of their travel plans through iMessage with other users. TripIt refreshes those plans when something is added or changed, ensuring everyone in the conversation has the latest information.

If a TripIt Pro user shares flight information, anyone receiving that information will be able to check the current status of the flight without leaving Messages.

TripIt will pull the latest trip information when the conversation is active. Everyone must also be signed in to the TripIt app and using iOS 11 to send and receive dynamic trip plans.

A subscription to TripIt Pro ($49/year) is required to send real-time flight updates.
