Tripsy Automation: Forward your reservations emails to Tripsy

We are very excited to share with you something we’ve been working for quite a while now, and many of our users have been requested for us: Tripsy Automation.

With Tripsy Automation, users can forward reservation emails to Tripsy, and Tripsy will automatically create and manage the activities in the app. It works with flights, hotels, trains, buses, restaurants, transfers, car rentals, meetings, and more!

This is the first step we are doing on automating the trip management, and all of this was only possible with our lovely users’ feedback, and our beta testers, so thank you very much!

Tripsy Automation starts supporting over 520 providers, with over 10.000 different email templates and 42 languages. This list will keep growing every day with new websites as we move forward and see what providers are more requested.

Getting started on Tripsy Automation is super easy, and we created a few guides to help you:

Tripsy 2.0 – More personal, powerful and integrated into iOS 13

We are very excited to share with you everything about our newest update into iOS, version 2 of Tripsy. This is an update exclusive to iOS 13+ users that come with lots of great news things we're going to be detailing in this post.

Let's get started.

Documents

Everyone that travels needs to carry documents. Flight tickets, hotel reservations, concert tickets, photos about important information that we cannot forget, like the guide in our Airbnb and much more!

That's why we developed this so that you can save any document into your trip. You can take a photo, choose a PDF, a video from your library, or even write a note to keep it always easy to get.

And the best part is that this is all shared with your guests, so if you're traveling with family and friends, they all have access to the documents and can add new ones. Isn't that awesome?! 😎

Access all documents from anywhere, and share with your guests

A new experience for adding activities

Adding information about each location can be painful and hard, sometimes we want quickly save a place with as much information as possible and look at it later. In our previous version, we realized the process was too much work, so we used our 🧠 to find the quickest way to add and organize your activities on Tripsy. Check it out:

Adding new activities on your trip is easier than ever on Tripsy 2.0!

Isn't that fast?! You search for it, find it and save. If you want, you can choose the date and time, but you can leave that empty, because sometimes we don't want to have a strict schedule, right? 🏖

Activities Lists

Want to check out all of the restaurants you saved and choose one for today's dinner? Now on the trip dashboard, there's a button to each major category of activities, so you can simply tap on it to see all of the activities that are related to that category. Useful as well to remember the great places you visited during your stay and the ones you missed to come back another time. 😏

Contextual Information

Have a flight on the next 48 hours? Tripsy will show you a big button with recent information about it on your dashboard, so you can tap on it to see more details.

The app also presents you information about your staying place, so you can quickly access it to get detailed information such as room number, check-in and check-out time and also the address to trace a route using your favorite app.

Personalization

Every trip is unique, it's personal, and you must be able to express your own style and personality on it. So now you can choose an image or a gradient color to put as the background of your trip. You can choose any of the more than 1.2 million free images hosted on Unsplash right from the app. All high-quality photos for your trip look great and inspiring, enjoy! 📸

New languages

We've added 9 new languages into the app: Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Russian, and Malay.

Japanese, Russian and Chinese.

Dark Mode

As some of you know, iOS 13 includes a dark mode visualization for those who don't want that super bright screen on their face at night or even during the day. If you are one of those users, we've got you. The whole app now supports Dark Mode integrated with the system.

Apple Sign-In

Doesn't feel like typing your email and password to login or create a new account in our cloud? You can now use Apple Sign-In, another new feature on iOS 13. This feature will use your Apple ID information to create a new account in our cloud system. You can read more about Sign in with Apple here.

You can choose to sign in with Apple on Tripsy 2.0

Siri Event Suggestions

With Siri Event Suggestions, when you add a new flight, hotel, train or restaurant, Siri will try to understand this activity and send you reminders when appropriated and will also suggest you a calendar event in some cases, that you can add or not if you don't want to. For example, Siri might remind you about your time to leave to the airport, or the train station, or give you the directions to your hotel.

iPadOS multi-window support

On iPadOS, you can now have multiple windows of Tripsy running, so you can keep one eye for example, on the list of restaurants while changing the activities you want to go later, or focus on one activity at the time, you choose. 🕺

Drag & Drop from Maps, Safari, and others

You can now drag and drop places and links from other apps into your itinerary or activities list. This feature is available on iPadOS only.

You can also try dragging links from Safari or other apps

New Website

We have now a new website to show how the app works, and it looks gorgeous: https://tripsy.app. It also works in dark mode with some unique interactions. 😎
