There is a Travel App for That: Trip It Travel Organizer

Trip It Travel Organizer – you’ll never have to dig through your printed, paper itineraries and email again.
TripIt (on iTunes) can connect to your Gmail (or Google Apps) account to import trip data, or you can just forward itineraries you get from booking sites or airlines and it will organize all the departures, arrivals, and other points during the trip in sequential order. TripIt instantly recognizes reservations from 3,000+ booking sites including cruises, restaurants, concerts and more by determining and looking up the confirmation number. It also syncs with your calendar to keep all the plans up to date.
My wife usually keeps us pretty organized during trips with all the bookings, confirmations, and to-do lists stored neatly in a folder and also organized by day of travel. Though I think with the new upgrade to an iPhone, we will be planning out our next venture with this app to make it easier and to keep everyone up to date on the itinerary. I most definitely need that as there are times that I am not 100% of what is on the agenda. ...

TripIt (no ads) (a paid version of the app) offers all the tools minus the ads. TripIt Pro (a subscription service) offers additional features. It monitors your flights for potential airfare savings, and sends you status alerts and other helpful reminders while you’re traveling, and is especially helpful for frequent travelers. As part of pro membership you do not get ads within the app also

Why good to have on a trip:
- Do not need to carry around print outs of all of the reservations and confirmations
- All trip data with a confirmation # is stored and digital collated
- You can easily share trip plans with family or colleagues
- Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. Requires iPhone OS 3.2 or later.
- It's Free
