Designing apps that cater to distinct needs, Blackberry has now come up with its new Travel app. This app is touted to be an integrated tool which enables users to plan, book, manage and share travel activities with ease.
The app renders flawless push notifications and a perfect integration of travel itineraries and flight status updates into the familiar BlackBerry Calendar. When the user’s e-mail inbox receives a new booking confirmation or itinerary, the BlackBerry Travel app will be intuitively updated with all the necessary itinerary details.
Besides BlackBerry push technology, this new solution can proficiently recognize potential omissions or scheduling concerns with the itineraries, like missing accommodations or timing conflicts. The app includes imperative travel tool such as hotel, booking, currency converters, weather forecasts and local search functionality.
Users can share their travel information through e-mail or LinkedIn. The LinkedIn integration helps users locate individuals, send messages to contacts and update their status. The app comes along with a web component that permits users to book flights and car rentals, and print and edit itineraries, from their PC. The app was developed in collaboration with WorldMate.
The BlackBerry Travel app can be downloaded from the BlackBerry App World for free. It lends support to BlackBerry smartphones running the BlackBerry 5 OS or above.
