Hopper is the traveler's friend. Among the 17 gazillion travel apps/sites out there, a recent commercial reveals that we look at about 7 of them before we book. First of all, that's too few -- we'll surely miss something. But even worse, that's too much. Time is finite -- we can't be spending all ours poking around endlessly for deals. In fact, that's one of the problems -- we have to look at the apps/sites, instead of them looking out for us.
Hopper, a free app, reverses that equation a little. Hopper does a lot of data crunching beyond the regulation "comparison" sites. You give the app data -- like what beach you want to sit on -- and it returns actionable information like when best to go and what the best day to book is for the cheapest deal. Try it. It can be addictive.
