  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.

        • Show items in categories sorted by itinerary schedule

          In a notebook category view, be able to view the attractions (or whatever) ordered by when they're scheduled in the itinerary.

            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...

              • See which items are scheduled or not (added to itinerary)

                It would be convenient to know which items are already added to the itinerary. So that by simply looking at the list you could see which items you have scheduled and which are unscheduled. Even a simple mark near the item icon could be sufficient. Being able to filter the list to scheduled/unscheduled would be even better.

                • 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.

                      to be able to schedule items more easily, please add an option to view a scheduler like Microsoft outlook shows in it's calendar. I would like to see 1 day or 1 week view, be able to drag items between days and be able to set start & end times in the scheduler

                        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

                        • More control over what prints

                          At the moment, when I print the itinerary absolutely everything is included. I'd like to be able to pick. So maybe just an itinerary of lodgings and attractions, but not all the notes and extras.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.)

                              • 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.

                                  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.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Re-arrange categories within a notebook

                                        I like being able to create custom categories for my trips; however, utility of this feature is limited by the fact that there is no way to move or sort the categories other than the order in which they were created. Drag and drop would be the most convenient method of re-ordering, but a fallback option would be to permit (though not require) categories to be sorted in alphabetical order -- it's easy enough to play with the names so they show up in the order I want.

                                        • 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.
