Tripcase acts as a diary for your various trips. You can store your flights, hotel name, and car reservation all in one place. As your departure time nears, the app will display your airport gate and you'll receive push and e-mail notifications in case of a delay. I used Tripcase last month when I went to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. I was very grateful to receive an alert that my outbound Lufthansa flight was delayed two and a half hours. As a result, I got some extra time at home instead of waiting at the airport.
If you enter your hotel, you'll see the address, check-in time, phone number and a general description of the facility. Other features include weather at your departure city and destination, the phone number for your airline, a list of alternate flights and an option to notify friends of your status. Another app in the iTunes Store called Trip Tracker (also free) offers similar features, though I haven't used it.
