Corporate-travel heavyweight Concur bought the maker of this innovative app for $120 million. Why? Tripit is an easy way to keep up with multiple flights, car rentals, and hotel reservations. Just forward all travel confirmation e-mails to plans@tripit.com and Tripit delivers a master itinerary to your phone. The basic app is free, but added features (like tracking frequent-flier miles) cost $49 a year. Available on iPhone/iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
