  • Try this app: HitList

A wayfarer's best friend, HitList keeps tabs on all the destinations you've been eying for your next vacation.

The site offers an alternative to endlessly perusing the web or waiting to book until a specific time of the week. Users select potential travel destinations, and then HitList monitors real-time flight prices and sends email notifications when rates drop.

In addition to acting like a travel agent, HitList's image-based design encourages discovery. Users can browse locations, see the best time of year to travel and compare flight times. There's also a Facebook (FB) plug-in that shares where friends have traveled (because if everyone's going somewhere, so should you).

Flights are booked through Skyscanner, one of the largest search engine databases.
