Knapsack2.2.2

08 July 2011

Plan, organize, and relive your travel adventures.

Overview

Knapsack, the personal travel planner for Mac OS X Leopard.

Knapsack's new world map let's you view your trip's destinations at any level of detail. You can get an overview of your entire trip across countries and continents or zoom in to street level to see all the parking lots near your hotel.

The new Map Search feature in Knapsack 2 helps you quickly find places, addresses, and even points of interest anywhere in the world. You can now locate cities, hotels, museums, airports, and more. Map Search uses an extensive online geographic database that is constantly improving.

Knapsack gives you the tools to plan, organize, and relive their travel adventures with many user-friendly features including map pins with location postcards, a flexible itinerary planner, trip checklists, convenient printed itineraries, and iCal syncing.

Stick a pin on the map - Just as you might stick a pin on a map to mark a spot that you've visited, you can use the map in Knapsack to place pins that represent locations from your trips. Click on any pin to see a postcard from that location.

Create an itinerary for your next trip - With the flexible itinerary planner you can build an itinerary with as much or as little detail as you need. Shuffle activities between days or even rearrange entire days. When you return from your trip, add notes about what you liked or didn't like to create a memory of your trip.

Use checklists to store all of your to do items - As you plan your trip, use checklists to keep track of all your unfinished business. Create packing lists, shopping lists, or lists of all the things that you need to do before you leave. Check each item off as you complete it to track your progress. Never forget your toothbrush or camera again.

Sync your itinerary and checklists with iCal - Sync your trip with a new or existing iCal calendar. Update your activities or to do items in iCal or Knapsack and the changes are immediately synchronized. Take your trip with you on your iPhone or other PDA and make changes while you're traveling. When you return and sync with iCal, your changes are automatically made in Knapsack. Alternatively, publish your trip to iCal with a one-way export.

Print your itinerary and go - Print a professional-looking itinerary to take with you. While you're at it, print a copy to leave behind for family and friends. You can even email your itinerary to anybody around the world.

Well. After several more hours of working with this program, my original comment stands. I really like the idea, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired and the price is way too high for what you get, IMO. Spend a bit extra and buy iWork ‘09. Numbers has a nice little template for travel information that is way easier to navigate. You can always add whatever notes and journal information you desire. If you want map info, you can add url links to your favorite map site. It prints up much nicer than Knapsack, too, where the notes come out in gray and difficult to read... Plus, if you buy iWork, you get Pages and Keynote! I'll keep an eye on this app, hoping that they'll release something that is more intuitive and with a nicer, more navigable mapping system like Google Earth. But for now, I'll take a pass.

It is sad this program died off. It had so much potential to be a really great app especially if it could connect to a iOS app for when you were out on your trip. If they don't want to develop for it anymore I wonder why they don't sell it to another company at least?

I thought Knapsack was what I was looking for as far as a trip planner AND recorder. However, being able to add only one picture (as a postcard), isn’t sufficient. I would like a program that would let me include all the stuff Knapsack does, but add a bunch of photos for each day as a true record.

PIK80's notion to have the ability to attach files is a great idea. I hope Chris can work this in sometime very soon. In any event Knapsack is still a lot of fun to work with, while being useful as well. Slightly O/T tip: I do realize piracy is a scourge for developers AND customers, but I must say I was surprised at a three-hundred and ninety-seven character serial. My little password manager wouldn't take a copy/paste for some reason. In case other customers hit this snag: I was able to DRAG the text into the field successfully!

Pretty nice idea but I would like the ability to attach files to a particular trip. For an example I recently camped out at a three day concert. It would have really been nice to have the ability to link the 3 tickets to the concert and the ticket to the camping space to that trip. Being able to enter in directions to where you are going and save that information would be important. There is an area of "unscheduled events" but no area for "scheduled events"! That would be something obvious to include. And perhaps the most obvious thing to include would be to sync the information to your device so that you could take it on your trip with you.

Glad to see the new mapping feature, but I'd really like to have the ability to see the satellite and bird's eye views that Google offers without having to switch to my browser. When I plan trips, I like to look at the overall topography of the area and search out interesting places to visit. Having a plain "road map" doesn't allow for this and having to switch back and forth to Google Maps in my browser adds another couple of steps I'd rather not have to take. Perhaps it's just me, though. The other features of Knapsack are good, it's just that the mapping feature is a really big deal for me.

Another comment after trying this again, now that there is a new version and a new developer: Until this app is able to show detail in its maps, using Google Maps without pixelation, this will remain a so-so application. Everything else is good and I would love to buy it, but I refuse to when the map section is so extremely bad.

Just a very quick review after using for only a couple of hours. I really like the concept and believe this has great potential however a few things are a bit maddening to me: 1) No detail in the closest zoom of maps (everything is too pixelated) making pin placement very arbitrary. I have to search the exact coordinates of each place in order to make sure the pin is placed correctly. It would be very nice if this feature used Google Earth technology to make pin placement much quicker and easier. Even having a search function of map coordinates would be better than what is currently in place. 2) Adding notes to itinerary items can be confusing in that a carriage return is not as simple as hitting “return” but you have to enter “control-return”. Trial and error gave me that one. Plus I can only see one line at a time when adding notes. Why is this? 3) The price seems a bit steep to me. The GUI is nice and all that, but some of the input methods are just not all that Mac-intuitive to me. I'm not sure I'll buy this. I am currently planning a trip overseas and will see how well this does it.

I know this is covered in the FAQ, but I was curious as to what DC yelpers felt made a good review. These things are, after all, largely subjective, and I find myself trying to find a balance between cataloging places I've been and providing something useful for others. At the same time, I find myself sometimes frustrated with the brevity or lack of detail in other reviews - what made a place so spectacular? why was your food so delicious or awful? --------------- sanjeet Try the TripChill iPhone travel assistant the next time you travel.

1. Good interface, Looks like it will work for what I want it to. 2. Expensive. 3. I have had a couple of blowups already but it is a new release of something that doesn't exist anywhere else to my knowledge so I am more willing to put up with it. 4. Web site doesn't have a forum. It needs one for proper feedback. Blogs are ok for announcing info but a forum makes or breaks it.

I am one that likes to plan out trips well in advance, and also revisit past trips, so this program caught my eye when I first saw it. I've been playing around with this for the past couple of days, and though fun and easy to use, there are a couple of things I think (though I am not a developer) the developers might want to consider. Firstly, the map used in Knapsack looks awful when you zoom all the way in. I'd prefer them to use Google Maps instead (though there is a link that takes you to Google Maps), or something more detailed. There were multiple activities I pinned in Paris, and it's not possible to pick specific activities from the map without having to click the horde of pins multiple times until you find the activity you're looking for. It'd be nice if you could get in closer to specific areas (ala Google Maps) on the map so you can plan or access more specific memories. Also, since the pins ask you for longitudinal and latitudinal positions, it'd be swell if you could search for specific places (cities, restaurants, etc.) within Knapsack, instead of having to find the information somewhere else. Secondly, I wish you could add photographs for each activity in the itinerary. It would also be nice if you could add multimedia to activities as well. For example, I have a short video I made of the Eiffel Tower lighting up and would love to be able to access it from the itinerary. This would help "re-live" old trips. Those are the two major things that come to mind. I'll keep playing with it during the trial period, and then I'll decide whether to buy it or not.
