Worldmate not updating
I remember one forced upgrade that actually was a migration to a completely new app.
It cut me off from my paid gold and the support didn't care one bit.
And for those immersed in the Google ecosystem, the free Google Trips travel planner for Android and i OS automatically creates itineraries by pulling in confirmations sent to Gmail accounts.
I found that Tripcase fails horribly if you have limited or throttled connectivity while roaming.. Any travel app should function offline without any issues and sync when you get data.

comes to mind (probably fixed by now though) as one of my major disappointments.
After updating a couple of days ago the i Phone app for Tripit, now it can also do this, very similar to World Mate.I can even edit everything on the app, where worldmate had issues. I only used the booking options through worldmate on 2 occasions, so i am not really missing them. It’s great and I love it, but the app is being discontinued and I need a replacement. The free version syncs and shares your travel information in one centralized place, but the Trip It Pro edition ( a year) adds real-time flight alerts, seat-upgrade notifications and other perks.Trip Case is another well-reviewed free itinerary manager with similar tools for Android and i OS devices; it also has integration with the Alexa assistant on the Amazon Echo line of speakers. But, when I sent a return flight and a separate hotel for the same date period and same city it inserted two trips. When I sent a separate outbound and inbound flight with a separate hotel I had three trips to merge! I've been using World Mate since 2008 and it was absolutely perfect for me - it was always accurate and prompt regarding flight delays (it even showed my canceled flight even 1hr before Austrian Airlines knew and could confirm it to me over the phone) AND it did a wonderful job regarding the email forwarding import function.I never could even imagine that there can be problems afterall with this... -Trip Case - too bulky for me, could not process all the STANDARD e-tickets from Amadeus and also many other known formats -Kayak - lacks a lot of functions (airplane type etc); it messes up some airports in my reservations BUT it's a pretty app -Tripit - does not import all my e-tickets correctly; is only able to have a reservation code for the whole trip; does not display all layovers (their customer support replied that a layover more than 4hrs is not considered a layover, that's why it's not displayed when I see my timeline (World Mate had no problem in displaying these, even if it was a 24h layover) Despite all the drawbacks I'm giving Tripit PRO a try - it appears to be the only decent solution for now.
