Is Like TripIt For Google Calendar Is Like TripIt For Google Calendar is a new calendar assistant that does for Google Calendar what TripIt does for travel planning. Send all of your appointments and events to one address, and they’ll automatically be added to your calendar and organised for you. No apps, forms to fill out, or stopping your work to manage your calendar.

The service just launched, and it really is that easy. Once you sign up, you have to give some basic permissions to your Google account (these are explained at the bottom of its FAQ) for the service to work.

If you need to set up a meeting, will understand emails that you fire off to it yourself, or even agreed-upon times buried deep in long email chains. All you have to do is add the address [email protected] to the end of that email chain or to your agreed-upon appointment, and the service will do the rest for you. In moments, you’ll have your event on your calendar.

While you could just click the “add to calendar” button in Gmail, this works for people not using webmail and eliminates the need to fill out a separate appointment. The service even adds landmarks, destinations, and other relevant information from your email to the appointment.

We should note that the service is brand new and very beta. Fellow Lifehacker writer Melanie Pinola and I have both been testing it for a while now, and while I haven’t had serious issues, Melanie has reported some quirkiness in how it adds events (sometimes all day, sometimes default time), so tread carefully. is free to use, and you can give it a whirl at the link below.
