    I downloaded this app thinking that with Google’s exhaustive database of maps and other information, I could put together a detailed “daily plan” of sites-to-see and places to stay for my upcoming trip, but it just falls short. Maybe 15-30 minutes into the app and I’ve already noticed... PROS - It gathers travel information (flights, accommodations, etc.) from your emails for you and consolidates it into a single “trip” - Using the Search, you can find detailed information about specific sites, including hours of operation, reviews, etc. - You can save these things-to-do for future reference CONS - Day Plan uses a “magic wand” button to put together a -random- itinerary of places to see and you have basically can’t choose where you’re going - Doesn’t allow you to create a plan from your own personal points of interest, e.g. you can’t choose a hotel as your start point or some other landmark as your next destination - Just not user-friendly or intuitive I’m normally a fan of Google products/services, and this app has a great database and means of consolidating your personal travel info, but without the ability to create and customize your own personal itineraries from this information, you really can’t “plan” anything. You’re better off “Googling” places and planning the rest of your trip on travel apps like Sygic or TripIt. I wanna give it to you Google, but I just can’t (I will if you can fix it)!
  • Worst app

    I cannot figure how to choose my own day trips when they keep suggesting the ones I don’t want. There are no directions on anything that is useful except just some for basics. It would be easier to do this on the computer first then have it transferred to the mobile. It would t accept anything useful for me
  • Handy tool

    Incorporates airfare and hotel information. Days plans are amazing as well for discovering what to do!
  • Can’t make own itinerary

    If I can’t make my own itinerary and day plan and not what google recommends than this app is useless.
  • Please add option to add events

    Great app and extremely useful, but would be so helpful to have the option to add events such as concerts to my trip
  • Extremely basic.

    Could do better on google maps
  • Would prefer better Flight tools

    This is a great idea but really falls short. You can’t browse or track flights which is one of googles strongest trip tools. The most worthwhile features are definitely watered down Google Maps tools so if you’re trying to plan out routes or search for things to do, creating your own maps is better or using an app like FourSquare. This trips app feels more like a poorly disguised advertising tool.
  • So much potential

    This could be a lifesaver, if only there was a way to create a custom itinerary, and not have to use the suggested ones. I know what sites I want to see and would love to add them in a schedule myself. Add that feature and it would be amazing!
  • Not very flexible

    Downloaded the App and was excited. Tried it out with a trip, but could not set my days up without suggestions getting in the way. Spent about and hour working with the app. Want to do Tokyo Disneyland for a full day, but suggestions kept getting in the way. It created its own day rather than the day I create and then another day was automatically created with Disneyland plus other suggestions. I deleted everything, saved, still had the suggestions hanging around. Deleted the entire trip and started again and ran into the same problem. This made me feel more stress than I need while planning a fun trip. Tried everything another day, same frustration. I am tech savvy, but this became a hassle that I didn’t want. Sorry. Deleted the App.
