Every so often, I peruse the App Store on my iPhone in search of cool new apps. I usually try them out for a few minutes, and if I don’t see the purpose right away, I’ll delete it to save room on my device. (For photos, of course!) When an app catches my eye, it stays a while. This was the case with Hitlist, a new app that helps you plan your vacations based on airfare prices.
Hitlist helps you plan your next vacation — but it does so in a kind-of backwards way. Normally, you’d pick the days and a place to go, then you’re shown a hefty price tag.
With the Hitlist app, you tell it where you want to go on your next trip and Hitlist will send you an alert whenever there are good airfare deals available. Over time, you’ll cultivate your own ‘hitlist’ of cities you’d like to hit up someday.
Hitlist pairs each destination with beautiful photography from Flickr, worsening my incessant wanderlust tenfold. Connect it to your Facebook to see which friends live in or have visited the cities on your list. How helpful is that for planning a trip? And great for reconnecting, too!
If you’re looking for a drool-worthy travel app or one that helps you find better deals on airfare, then you should definitely check this one out! // susannah
