RIM releases BlackBerry Travel
When Research In Motion said they'd be introducing Super Apps this year at Mobile World Congress, they weren't kidding. Let me present to you BlackBerry Travel. This application automatically searches your emails & LinkedIn profile for any upcoming trips that you have. It will help you book (within the app) flights, hotels, etc.
It's seem to currently only be compatible with US, Canada & UK but there is reports of the application being compatible in Spain.
BlackBerry Travel makes it easy for you to plan, book, manage and share your travel activities. Read below for a detailed list of supported features:
Email Itinerary Management
- The ability to view/create/edit current & future itinerary items including flight, hotel and car rental.
Notifications & Alerts
- Automatic trip scanning will recognize the itineraries emailed to you and add them to the BlackBerry Travel application.
- Receive push notifications and alerts for your itineraries, such as flight reminders, flight/gate/terminal changes, flight cancellations and delays.
- Search and book hotels based on your scheduled destination or future locations, ranked by location, price, and quality.
- Search flight schedules by city, airport, and date.
- Search for local POIs such as dining, shopping and nightlife with map views, click-to-call and click-for-reviews.
