As the sun sets on summer, families across the country are trying to squeeze in one last rendezvous before the season officially comes to a close. For many, that means one last backyard bash, one last dip in the pool and one last family vacation before it’s back to school for the kids and back to carpools for their parents. In fact, August is the second most popular month for summer travel, according to the Office of Travel and Tourism; and popular destinations like Disney World and Disneyland name this month their busiest.
For those in need of a getaway, there is a great, easy-to-use product that will help with planning a final summer vacation. Microsoft OneNote helps organize links, maps, travel arrangements and documents in one location so nothing gets lost and no attraction gets missed. So, when a quick search on Bing turns up a list of must-see places - like the famous local rib joint or tucked away beach, you can keep track of all the details with ease.
Best of all, OneNote travels with you through a handy app that’s available on the most popular smartphones. Dreaming of a camping trip where there’s no phone service or Wi-fi? No problem. OneNote lets you access all your maps, notes and other important details without the need for smoke signals. Or, if you're using a browser, just open the OneNote Web App to find your vacation hot spots in an instant.
And if you’re booking a trip with friends out-of-state, don’t worry. All your notes are automatically saved online on SkyDrive, so you can send your friends a single, private link to access the latest trip details.
After the trip of a lifetime you can insert pictures, videos and highlights right into your notes. With OneNote, who needs a travel agent? For more information on OneNote, be sure to visit here.
