Trip Boss by Creative Algorithms is an app which allows the user to plan a variety of trips using tools such as a trip itinerary, budget, expenses, tip/split calculator, currency converter, travel time calculator as well as other modules. Enter flight into Itinerary, then add ticket cost into expenses with easily with only a couple of taps! The app allows you to set up a variety of personal settings including airport, default time zone, preferred currency, payment type and budget to name a few. The app also features an currency converter which will be especially useful to international travelers.
I used this on a recent trip to store itineraries, plan a budget and keep track of my expenses. I also used the journal module which allowed me to document our trip and helped me to label our family photos upon our return home since I knew where they were all taken. I really liked that you could get core modules and purchase additional ones as time went on. I think this app would be good for both personal and business travel since it seems flexible either way. You can also add categories to the budget and expense report to customize it based upon your individual needs. I also liked that it was really easy to export reports via email in either CSV or HTML along with printing photo receipts for different expenses. I can see this app being very helpful to a traveler who has a daily per diem that they must not exceed, it would be helpful since it calculates the amounts as they are entered allowing them to adjust budgets accordingly.
I wish this app also came in an iPad version – though I’m told it is in the works. Having an add in which would include a map would help enhance the travel time calculator and allow a person to plan their route better especially if they are unfamiliar with the area.
If you a parent planning an upcoming vacation, a business traveler or even someone who is just trying to keep better track of all of your daily tasks and budget this app may be right for you.
