San Francisco and New York, May 19 2014:   The world's highest-rated travel organizing app with more than 10 million users --  TripIt from Concur --  is now one of the first applications to be available for Google Glass.
It ushers in a new way for travelers to access all their travel plans  and get timely trip information at eye level when faced with gate changes, flight delays and cancellations. TripIt was selected to bring its all-in-one travel organizer to Glass along with an exclusive group of travel partners.
Glassware makes it even easier for travelers to engage with the world around them. TripIt users now have the option to keep their smartphone tucked away, while all the information needed to make their journey as smooth as possible is in sight. Flight details are displayed conveniently upon arrival at the airport, followed by a car rental, hotel, and any other travel reservations previously forwarded to plans@tripit.com.   
For TripIt Pro users, TripIt Glassware presents real-time flight status notifications at the right moment throughout the trip, including: check-in reminders, gate changes, flight delays, and more. In one tap, a traveler can view alternate flights to find a faster way home or squeeze in a few extra hours in a favorite destination.
TripIt Glassware is now available for download in Google Play. While TripIt organizes travel plans in one place for free, a subscription to TripIt Pro is required for flight status alerts and notifications ($49/year). A free 30-day trial of TripIt Pro is available at http://tripit.com/pro.
