The idea for Trip Money first came whilst on trip to Las Vegas. I had taken a currency card pre-loaded with dollars, with data roaming switched off the only way to check the current balance without a Wi-Fi hotspot was to find an ATM. I thought here's a great idea for a iPhone app, now Trip Money has evolved and does a lot more than just tell you how much balance you have left.
MyGiftCards is our free app which allows you to keep track for your gift card balances. Trip Money can do the same but with all the extra features above, simply create a new Trip and call it something like "GiftCards", then add each of your gift cards.
