This App Keeps You From Missing Your Flight

If you consistently find yourself scrambling to get out the door in time for a flight, a new digital service has your name written all over it.

Travel-organizing app TripIt has introduced new features designed with the scatterbrained traveler in mind.

Go Now is one of those features. Travelers using the Go Now feature are alerted 24 hours before any U.S. domestic flight with information about when and how to get to the airport based on their location, current flight status and local traffic conditions.  The feature also has a countdown timer that begins two hours before your flight, along with notifications that let users know when they have 10 minutes before they need to leave the house.

“Even for the most seasoned travelers, finding the right time to leave for the airport can be tricky, especially in an unfamiliar city,” said Jen Moyse, TripIt’s director of product.

“Add in a flight delay or cancelation, and suddenly your day is ruined; with Go Now, we’ll take all of that into consideration so you don’t have to.”

The app’s other new feature, TripIt Navigator, shows users which transportation options are available, their estimated costs and their projected arrival times.

The app itself costs $49 a year, but for the absent-minded adventurer, it could prove priceless.

For cannabis enthusiasts living in adult use states, long gone are the days of sneaking around with a dime bag in a coat pocket and worrying about whether the neighbors know you’ve got weed. But the sad truth is that, for millions of Americans living in prohibition or restrictive medical-only states, accessing safe and regulated cannabis is still a problem. But does that mean that those living without access to the regulated market are abstaining from cannabis altogether?

Can we see some ID please?
