RIM today announced a new official BlackBerry application called BlackBerry Travel. As you might have guessed, this app is a travel companion allowing you to manage many aspects of your travel arrangements as well as sharing them.
Features of the app include:
- Stay informed on flight changes & cancellations.
- Get seamless integration with emailed itineraries – the app automatically grabs your info.
- Find the best places to eat and shop with Yelp®.
- Quickly search & book hotels right from the app.
- Get recommendations for items you may have forgotten or booked incorrectly.
- Be prepared with 5-day weather forecasts & a currency converter.
- Share your travel plans with friends, family & colleagues by email or on LinkedIn®.
This app was built in collaboration with WorldMate which is a very good app so I expect nothing less from RIM’s version. The BlackBerry Travel app is available as a free beta download for most devices running OS 5.0 or higher.
