TinyPlanet on Wednesday introduced Knapsack 1.0, a “personal travel organizer” for Mac OS X v10.5. The software costs $39.95, and a 30-day demo is available for download.
Knapsack includes tools to help you plan, organize and catalog your travel experience. You can view a world map and stick pins on it to mark the places you’ve been. Clicking on a pin lets you see postcards from that location; clicking on the postcard opens up a Google map of that place in the world.
You can use Knapsack to maintain travel itineraries, copy and paste activities and checklists, and simply your planning for your trip. Once you’re back Knapsack can be used to add notes to what you liked or didn’t like about where you’ve been. You can rate trips using a five-star rating system, then sort your trip library by favorites.
Knapsack lets you import or export PDF data, create “trip groups” and “smart groups,” includes sample trips so you can get started easily, and features built-in help.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.5 or later, G4/1GHz or faster processor, 64MB VRAM, 512MB RAM and 20MB hard disk space.
