When an airline bumps us from a flight or delays us for hours on end, most of us accept our meager meal vouchers and swallow our pride. A bold few might actually file a claim for compensation, but when an airline either fails to answer the claim or rejects it outright, those passengers usually give up, too.
TechCrunch
Few things are more dreadful than dealing with airline customer service. Fortunately, there's a startup that wants to make those calls for you. For hassle-free travel, is raising $12 million in Series A funding from a group of investors, including Khosla Ventures and Evan Williams .

Don't get me wrong: I'm all about buying American. In fact, I'll go out of my way to search for items made in the USA and will even pay more for American-made products. But when it comes to buying airfare to foreign destinations, I think twice.

Hipmunk has a great interface, and their proprietary sorting mechanism (I think it's called Grief) is well done.

Hipmunk is my go-to starting point for any flight research. Beyond sorting by agony, it has one of the better interfaces for figuring out optimal dates to adjust flexible travel schedules. E.g., I can move my departure one day in advance and save $300.

I've been a long-time Hipmunk fan, not just for the cute mascot. Enter your flight details and Hipmunk presents a calendar-like view of flights across numerous airlines, sorted by "agony" which is a combination of price + layovers + time of the day.

This is the best app I've found so far for managing favorite restaurants, shops, hotels, and spots in the cities you visit or frequent all over the world. You can organize by tags and share with friends. It's made a huge difference for my wife and I as we travel for both business and vacation purposes. Quite a lovely design too.

Great UX and gorgeous design. Easy and fast to add a new place. I use it to keep track of restaurants & bars people tell me about with a wishlist tag. Love the fact that you can only describe the place in 140char (I usually use 5 words), avoids the "infinitely-long yelp review effect".

All those moments when friends said they tried a new restaurant/café/... and I just said "sounds cool! I'll try it" and forgot... All those moments when I'm searching for a new place, but Yelp reviews don't help... For me Mapstr solves both those pain points: I created a wishlist tag, and now I'm never short of new places to try. Plus the overall UX and int… See more

Meet Mapstr, a hybrid map and note taking app that lets you easily bookmark your favorite restaurants, bars and more. It reminds me of the old Del.icio.us, but this time it's for places. There are already many ways to keep track of places.

Mapstr is an interesting app, a sort of bookmarking service, but for places. It's a great way to bookmark your favorite restaurants, bars and shops. When I first reviewed the app, it was still a beta. Mapstr is now back with version 1.0 and a bunch of interesting features that make it more useful.

When I traveled to India for 3 weeks, I used Tripomatic (now called Sygic Travel) to plan each day. I got quite a few recommendations on what to go see when I started planning. It's really helpful with the map feature, and you can organize your trip however you want. The route mapping is really helpful, and it can help you decide how many things you should d… See more
