One of our favorite travel apps just got a whole lot better thanks to a new feature that tells you exactly when to leave for the airport to ensure you’ve got enough time to drive, park, check-in and get to the gate. Basically, Tripit is making it really hard for you to miss your flight, and for that, we’re thankful.

All that glitters… is glitter!

These days, you can make as much of a fashion statement with your iPhone as you can with your clothes and accessories. Case in point: these new Liquid Glitter iPhone cases at Casetify, which are a special Valentine’s Day treat for the tech lover in your life.
