Google Jumps into the Trip Management Game with Google Trips

If you travel a lot your phone is your friend. It keeps track of your flight, your hotel, and more but it’s either via e-mail or an app like Google Keep or something else. Well, Google has brought together everything in one beautiful app called Google Trips!

Google Trips promises automatic trip organization. If you have a trip and you used your gmail account to set it up, it will look in your mail for those reservations and then create a trip automatically. Once in the trip, you see a nice pic of the destination, places to go, places to eat. It’s pretty bare bones at the moment but it’s really beautiful. It even picked up stuff in my gmail from my past trips too. Unfortunately this one is for Android only and there does not seem to be a web interface yet.

To Google: Please add Keep Integration and let me add a packing list right from Trips! Also let me add things to the list as well that AREN’T automatic.  Do those and I see no reason to use any other trip management app.
