nodconcept has announced a major new version of its flagship travel itinerary application, Travel Assistant Pro for iPhone and iPod touch. The new version adds full support for TripIt's new TripIt Pro service and implements a variety of new features available in iPhone OS 3.0.

Travel Assistant Pro 3.0 builds on its extensive list of features by fully integrating support for TripIt Pro, TripIt's itinerary monitoring and travel alerts service. Travel Assistant Pro is the first and only app to implement support for TripIt Pro. Using TripIt in Travel Assistant Pro is as easy as emailing your travel itineraries and launching Travel Assistant Pro. The app will automatically download your itinerary, so it is with you everywhere you go.

Taking advantage of the devices' accelerometer, users can update itineraries in Travel Assistant Pro by simply shaking the device. This allows you to reload the full itinerary or individual events, so you can monitor and check the status of any upcoming flights or travel plans, giving you status changes, estimated departure and arrival times, gate assignments and baggage claim locations.

"We are really excited to see the Travel Assistant Pro App supporting our TripIt Pro service," said Scott Hintz, VP Business Development for TripIt. "Travel Assistant Pro is a simple and easy way for travelers to take advantage of services like flight monitoring and mobile travel alerts."

Travel Assistant Pro stores Rewards accounts and balances for multiple people, as well as providing a Travel Log for users to store information. Travelers also have the convenience of having a built-in Lists tab for to-do's, packing lists and more.

In addition, Travel Assistant Pro 3.0 adds a host of features enabled by iPhone OS 3.0:
* Share itineraries with other people via in-app email
* Add current location to Travel Log entries using location services and integrated map technology
* Shake device to clear checked items in the app's Lists tab
* Double-tap list items to disable/re-enable the item
* Data detectors automatically turn phone numbers and URLs into tappable links in itinerary notes fields and Travel Log items
* Shake device to sync with TripIt, shake again to cancel

Pricing and Availability:
Travel Assistant Pro 3.0 is available immediately as a free update for existing users and $9.99 (USD) for new users from the iTunes App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
