Google Trips app for Android and iOS goes official

It's been several months since the first rumors about Google's Trips application emerged online. Today, the search giant announced Google Trips is available for both the Android and iOS platforms.

With Google Trips, users will be able to centralize the information about their past or future trips, including reservations, things to do, food & drink, or even day plans and how to get around in a city.

This is basically a personalized tour guide in your pocket. Since each trip needs key categories of information, like day plans, reservations, and more, you will be able to access it in just one place.

Google Trips reads you Gmail emails, so every time you make a reservation, if you received confirmation on that email account, then it will show up in the Google Trips app under “Reservations” category. The same goes for flights reserved, or restaurant reservations.

Furthermore, the application ca be used online once you tap the “Download” button under each trip to save all the information directly on the phone.

The application enables users to choose their own adventures much easily since it shows a wide range of day plans featuring the most popular daily itineraries. Additionally, the developers have included the most popular sights, attractions, and local gems into a full day's tour.

Most of the information included in the application is based on historic visits by other travelers. This will allow users to plan their vacations accordingly.

Google Trips seems to be available worldwide since developers did not announce anything in this regard. You can find it either on Google Play or App Store, depending on what smartphone you're rocking.

I tried it last night and was sorely disappointed. I only tried one location, Yosemite, but it wouldn't allow me. I haven't tinkered too much with it since then, but it looks to me like it's only relevant for a small number of destination locations.

I just tried it. It works fine here in New Delhi.

It's a good app. I will probably use it when I take Christmas leave.

I tried this for a week... It's like Wikipedia searches in tile for a place... it's not user-friendly, it doesn't give me all info I need, it's bugged. I think asking questions to the locals and the good old map from my travel planner (tigsee. com) provide would work better.
