  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Allow me to share my trip plan with others (read-only)

        I'd love to be able to share a link with my friends so they could see a read-only view of the trip I'm planning. (Right now, I can only invite friends to join the trip in a way that lets them edit everything in it.)

        • Colored Labels in Calendar

          Would like to have the ability to assign different colors in the calendar. This is useful for differentiating activities such as hotel stays, entertainment bookings and other such events.

          • Easier way to add flight information

            Not at all clear on how you add a flight to Planapple. Should be able to just email the itinerary or at the very least have a simple look-up based on Flight #, airline, and date. It is not at all clear how you add transportation currently.

            • 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.

              • Import calendar entries from Kayak calendar

                Kayak offers a similar service to Tripit for sending them booking confirmation emails and having them added to a calendar which is available as a calendar feed.

                Sometimes Kayak can recognize email formats that Tripit cant (and vice versa) so it would be nice if Planapple would accept any calendar feed as an import source for itinerary entries

                • Add more than one link (bookmark) to an item

                  I would like to ad more links (bookmarks) to an item. Sometimes you have the homepage of a restaurant for example and want to keep a forum post about that restaurant for reference.

                    You can actually do this now, but only through the Planapple Save Button. There’s not yet any way to add additional bookmarks from within Planapple itself. (We’ll treat votes for this suggestion as a vote for that feature.)

                    When you’re using the Save Button, there are two tabs at the top: “New Item” and “Update”. Use the “Update” tab to add the page you’re saving to an existing item in your trip.

                  • Have draggable map markers

                    Not everything is known to google. Most rural or "secret" attractions can't be found by address but only coordinates. Having draggable map markers wourl really improve usability.

                    • Map where tripmates are traveling from

                      It would be nice if there was a way to post up a map where everyone could edit where there are coming from for this event.

                      • Search within my trip

                        I would like to be able to search my entire trip - at least the title and description fields, if not everything. I don't see any possibility to search everything at the moment.

                        • Allow us to label while importing

                          It would be great if there was a way to apply a label to an imported item using only the "Save To Planapple" button. You can edit almost any other field, why can't you add labels to things as well?

                          • Add the travel distance in the itinerary

                            Adding the estimated distance between locations by travel time or km could help on designing itinerary. Including the travel cost and means could also help.

                            • Include short notes in the summary printed itinerary

                              I would add things like confirmation #s and keep a printout with us when traveling as a safety net should electronics be lost or unusable. Printing the long version of a trip report is not practical.

                              • Show basic description for Notebook items without going to Details

                                Show at least part of a description without having to view details. My tripmate has never been in the area we're going to. I added various attractions that I'm familiar with, but my tripmate isn't. If you're just glancing through at the names, it's hard to tell what some of them are. It'd be nice to have at least part of the description showing on the list so there's an idea of what the attraction is. Right now the only thing that shows is who created it, when, possibly a rating, and comments.

                                      • German Version

                                        Well, I'm just missing the german/european version of this tool.

                                        Germans are the world champions of travel. Each employee has 28-34 days of vacation per year and believe me they utilize it. So might be an idea to expand to Germany?

                                        • Sync Planapple plans back out to TripIt

                                          Planapple can import (and update) plans from TripIt into the Planapple itinerary, but I'd also like to sync the opposite direction, so my Planapple itinerary shows up in TripIt.
