TripIt: Travel Organizer

Tripit is one of my favorite Travel Organizers for air travel.  As soon as you book a flight, hotel, car or other reservation, simply forward it to plans@tripit.com and your plans will be instantly added to your master itinerary. 

All your important details like flight timings, confirmation no., seat no. are in one place. No more frantically searching through your inbox for them.  Important details like when your flight gets in, or your confirmation number will all be in one place.  You can get to them instantly in TripIt, even when you’re offline. Plus, it is very easy to send travel plans to your calendar, or to anyone you choose. You can even update your meetings, hotel bookings and local conveyance bookings, to give you a complete picture of your visit in one place.

Manage all your plans for free with TripIt, or, for about the price of checking your bags, upgrade to Tripit Pro to get stress-free travel all year long. When you upgrade, you get additional features like choosing the best seat, receive real-time flight alerts, get terminal and gate reminders, track your frequent-flyer miles and much more.

An essential for Air Travel – undoubtedly!

www.Cam-Recorder.com

Cam-Recorder is a simple tool to create videos online or even offline. Just click on the Record button and start recording. It uses your microphone and  webcam to create the recording. (Remember to give permission to your camera and microphone before you start.) It uses native recording capabilities of your browser, so you do not need anything else.

The recording takes place locally. So, after the recording is over, you can save it on your local hard disk. After saving it, you could send it to any recipients via email, Whatsapp or any other mode of sharing.

Your recording is never transferred to any remote system unless you choose to. You can upload it, if you so desire, and mark it as public or private or unlisted. It also gives you an option to automatically upload it to Youtube.

All in all, a very simple Video Recording tool.

Be My Eyes – Helping the blind

Lend your eyes to a blind person in need through a live video connection or be assisted by the network of sighted users. Be My Eyes is all about contributing and benefiting from small acts of kindness, so hop on board and get involved!

Blind or visually impaired users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who will be notified on their phone. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request for help, a live audio-video connection will be set up between the two parts. The sighted helper can now assist the blind or visually impaired, through the video connection from the blind or visually impaired user’s rear-facing camera.

The blind or visually impaired person can need help with anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk, to making sure that their clothes match.
