WHAT: The Tripini app keeps all of your pertinent travel information -- medical, passport, visa, flight, hotel, car rental information, photos and more -- locked in a password-protected area on your Apple or Android device. It's free for an introductory period.

HITS: The password system worked for me, and I would feel safe leaving my information on the app. I hesitated only when I came to filling out my debit and credit card info. But it's all optional. I also liked the breadcrumbs that show your route.

MISSES: I couldn't access all of Tripini's features. Only when I pretended to leave on a trip that started with today's date could I access the packing list and area where I could store my tickets and lodging info. Also, if you bounce between an iPad and an iPhone, you have to enter your information on each device. You just can't store it under a member account.
