  1. Keep a budget for the trip

    Can you help us keep track of how much the vacation is going to cost, and how to divide up the expenses between the families that are going?

      • Add/remove multiple pictures for items

        Items with pictures added from the "Save to my trip" button can have their picture changed, but items with no picture does not allow us to add one later. It's also not possible to remove a photo from an item. And it would be nice to have multiple photos on an item.

          There’s now an “Add Picture” option for items with no pictures, and “Change Picture” now has a button to delete the photo. We’re still looking into supporting multiple pictures on an item at some point in the future.

        • Android App

          Have a native Android app I can download from the Google Play store.

          • Let us upload our own photos and pictures

            and add them to items and perhaps attach them as comments to trip messages (ie post them to the news feed)

            • route planning features for road trips

              I'd like to be able to enter start and end locations, and add or remove stops inbetween. Overlayed on this I'd like to be able to see lodging, tourist stops, food, gas stations etc...

              • Show multi-day itinerary items on every day they're scheduled

                I've created a lodging entry and said I'll be staying there for 3 days, but it only shows in the itinerary on the first day. I'd like the option of showing where I will be staying for every day in the itinerary.

                • iPhone app

                  Planapple should have an iPhone app that copies my trip to my phone so I can see it when I'm out of the country.

                  • Make a to-do list

                    There are so many things to do before you travel. A to-do list with deadlines would be perfect to remember everything before you leave.

                    • get directions or route between different places in my trip

                      If we have a bunch of places we're going on one day, we'd like to get directions from our hotel to each of them and then back. Right now, we use Google Maps and have to copy each place into it. It would be nice if Planapple could somehow do this for us.

                        We’ve added something to make this a little easier. Under the map, there’s a new “Get directions on Google Maps” link. Clicking that will open Google Maps with all of the places currently showing on the map, and you can get directions between them there.

                        As a reminder, in Planapple the map shows whatever places are in the list on the left. So if you’re looking at Dining, all the restaurants will show up. (Also, places only show up on the map if Planapple knows their addresses. You can set or change an item’s address by clicking “Edit Details” on the item.)

                      • Overview map of all destinations

                        Why not have an overview of your trip available, with destinations being connected by "as the crow flies" lines. Then be able to drill down on the individual destinations to zoom in.

                        • Set both departure and arrival locations for flights, trains, etc.

                          It would be great if, for transportation, we could set two locations: one for departure and one for arrival.

                          • Reorder destinations by drag and drop

                            If I add a destination using button in left pane it is always added at bottom of list.
                            It would better to allow reordering of the list by drag and drop or initially position by itinerary dates.

                            I can use edit trip to reorder entries but it it is less obvious than dragging from main window.
                            Sometimes order of segments is not correctly reflected in left pane
                            Adding destinations from Edit trip is inconsistent with adding destinations from left pane. You have to type name first and add location afterwards while the add destination button allows name to default to…

                              Hi, just a suggestion to you to benefit your UK/European users, that if there was an option to switch the Date Formats used on the site between 12/25/13 and 25/12/13, it would gain a contribution from me

                                • Export locations as gpx (or kml) with categories

                                  I'd like to have planapple's locations on my mobile. But i'd like to use an OpenStreetMap tool like OsmAnd, because it works much better for me regarding offline navigation and self-defined favorites. So a more general export of all locations as gpx or kml would be really nice (i'd prefer gpx! :) ).

                                  My current workaround is to select "Everything" in planapple, copy the string you provide via "Get directions on Google Maps" and convert it with a python script to gpx, then i can import these as favorites in OsmAnd. Sadly, the categories get lost as they are not…

                                  • Show how far things are from my hotel or destination

                                    There are all sort of ideas that I'm gathering, but I'm not familiar with the area, so it would be nice to know how far the attractions are from my destination city or the hotel where we're staying. It would be great if this was shown in the hover box, be able to sort by distance as well.

                                    • Make it easier to set specific times for itinerary items

                                      It takes a lot of clicks now to set a time for an itinerary item. Forget the exact order but it was click on item > details > edit details > more details > finally a way to add hours which is a long list if you want to enter a pm time.

                                      • Visual Indication when new items/discussions are added

                                        Have an easy, visual way to show that something has been added/commented on when viewing the trip page. For instance, if I start a Discussion with my tripmate, perhaps show Discussion in bold or with a (1) after it to indicate that there's something new there.

                                        My tripmate doesn't always check his email, so he's not likely to see the notifications. If there was an easy way to see that there are new items (and where they are), it would be really helpful.

                                        • UI for a larger screen

                                          I really liked the app and the way it was designed, but I feel like everything is stretched to fit that fixed width and I'm underusing my 22" monitor. Would be nice to be able to have more used space in the screen (maybe a responsive layout) so I could see more details about the places I'll go and at the same time see the calendar or the map with more details as well.
