When I first signed on, I plugged in my flight numbers and it automatically filled in the details — departure and arrival times, gate numbers, etc. It was nice to see all that on one device instead of constantly checking my paper printouts from the electronic tickets.
I then added times of our tours — the Library of Congress, the U.S. Capitol, the National Archives, etc. — and included confirmation numbers, addresses and other details. It was an easy way to keep track of where we were headed next.
The more you travel, the more extensive and helpful I think you'll find TripIt. It's the highest grossing travel app on the iTunes store, and recent updates show that TripIt creators pay close attention to the needs of the travelers who use it.
