How does the web app look and feel to use?

The homepage is a little overwhelming, with a significant quantity of text. There are hints of color and an easy to read logo, but the focus is definitely not on graphic design here. Think “utilitarian” with a bit more text and you have the Budget Your Trip website. Of course, the main draw here is the trip budgeting tools rather than fancy graphics or cutting edge imagery.

How does the registration process work?

The sign up page asks for only a few pieces of vital personal and trip related information. New users will be asked to enter an email address, password, display name, and a preferred currency. A short bio is requested but not a requirement for registration. The load time is a little more drawn out than most websites, but no email verification is required. As soon as the account is created, the user can immediately view their personal page and start planning their first trip budget.

What does it cost to use the application?

For the most part, Budget Your Trip offers its services for free without intrusive interruptions to foot the bill.

Who would you recommend the application to?
