|Getting the Most Out
of Trip Boss
Boss travel manager is unique because you can add on extra
modules through in-app purchase, putting all your travel management and
coordination into one convenient app.
In addition, the apps work together. For example, enter your
plane itinerary into the itinerary module and then add the expense, right from within itinerary.
All common data transfers and the expense shows up in the expense
module. No need for double entry.
The apps have dual navigation--view by Trips and quickly switch between
all the enabled modules. Or, enter via the specific module and
view special summary data, such as status of all submitted expense
Four versions of Trip Boss are offered on the AppStore. Pick one
that interests you, try it out, then add-on more modules within each
app, via in-app purchase, to customize to a feature-rich travel app.

File Sharing for Extra Backup
peace of mind when upgrading to iOS5
apps have iTunes File Sharing enabled. The benefit of File
Sharing is that you can make an extra backup of the database files to
your PC or Mac. So, if a restore doesn't work properly or you
accidentally delete the app off your device (which will also delete all
data), you have a backup, specific to the app, that's been saved to the
side that can be put back onto your device. Sometimes doing
upgrades to the iOS can be daunting, but with File Sharing, that extra
backup can give you the comfort that your data is extra safe.
In addition, if you have the same app on other devices, you can use
File Sharing to move the data to the other device. Just be careful, because it will
completely overwrite any existing data, so be sure you have not added
any new data to the app on the device you are copying the backup to.
not a data sync, but an overwrite.
Apple has a good tutorial
on their website, which is applicable to both iPad and iPhone apps.
As always, data backups are only as good as your last sync with iTunes,
so we recommend syncing often, or after you've entered a lot of new
|Tip for Changing
in Journal Module
You can designate your home Time Zone in the
Trip Boss settings. This zone is where all your time stamps
start, unless you edit them in the entries. Journal is unique
because you may travel between time zones throughout the same day's
entry. For example, when we've traveled cross-country by train
across the US, we quickly moved though time zones.
When the bonus keyboard row comes up,
there is a "time" button to enter a time stamp in your journal entry.
The time stamp starts with your default time zone you have set in
Settings. To change it, just tap on the date (i.e. Sun 29 May
shown above). A picker screen appears where you can change the
date and the time zone. After you change the zone, the "time"
button will use the new zone until you change it again, or start a
brand new trip.
Journal for Trip
Boss is available on the AppStore, or as an add-on in any Trip Boss
app via in-app purchase.
