Entertainment Tonight back with another in depth app review. This app is extremely handy and extremely user friendly for any traveler that flies, stays in hotels and rents cars frequently. It's backup by its own website which has stood as one of the premier trip planning sites for years. This week's Entertainment Tonight app of the week is...
Kayak.com is the #1 site for travel planning which includes car rental, flights, hotel stays; etc. This app compliments the actual website perfectly and allows BlackBerry users to pretty much plan everything about their trip without ever having to actually visit the website on a PC.
The interface is extremely user friendly and easy to use. The opening screen allows you to access all the main functions of the app:
- Car Rentals
- Flight Status
- Fare Trends
- Currency Converter
Finding tickets for flights is made extremely easy whether it's a one-way, round trip or multi-city flight. You can definitely tell this app was designed with the intent of helping anyone, even people that are technologically-challenged, find and purchase tickets and plan a trip.
If, for some reason, you're not sure where the nearest airport is, Kayak also includes a cool little feature that uses your BlackBerry's GPS locator to tell you what airport is the closest.
Kayak also incorporates Hotel stays as part of their complete trip planning experience. It'll scan its site for the best deals and help you finalize any deal you want.
It's pretty obvious that this app is one of the most solid ones out there. Business people absolutely love Kayak for BlackBerry and rightfully so. No app is perfect, but this one is about as close to it as it can get. Next time you need to plan a trip, give Kayak a try. It definitely will not disappoint.
