TripRider Review: Meet the Cadillac of Travel Apps (+ Free Promo Codes!).
For years, I’ve wanted a moleskin notebook. That sleek black cover with its rounded corners and elastic closure calls to me every time we start planning a new trip.
But time and time again I resisted the urge. See I realized a long time ago that I don’t like journaling–in the traditional sense that is; I have always preferred typing to writing, unless I’m reporting on a story. And as much as I’d like to think I would use my moleskine for deep thoughts, notes and sketches, the truth is I knew in my heart that I never would–my handwriting is awful and my drawing skills are even worse. Plus, I’ve become hooked on using my iPhone to capture our travel stories. It has streamlined the process and there is no better example of this than TripRider [4.99/Free].
Over the past couple of years I tried a lot of different apps for chronicling our trips and I can say with confidence that TripRider is the most complete travel notebook app I have ever used–it is the Swiss Army Knife of travel apps. In the past to get the functionality that I get with TripRider, I would have had to use a multitude of apps to organize, manage and share my trip.
Beyond travel management tools and notebook functions, like Diary, Quick Notes, TripRider features an arrary of travel planning solutions, including Packing List and Expense sections as well as a Wallet to securely store important information–documents, credit cards and tickets, and a Maps sections to organize and add photos of all the essential maps for your journey, which can be accessed without an internet connection. In fact, one of my favorite things about TripRider is that it plays so well offline.
Other designs characteristics that I really enjoy about TripRider is its stylish vintage look and the fact that it takes up minimal space–216 mb–on your device. It’s truly a beautiful app. Additionally, the app’s Photo Album does a great job of organizing your photos into trip folders when you export them into “Photo” app. And I love that you can create and export a Trip Book to iBooks that can be easily shared with your family and friends.
