The Daily App: WorldMate for Android3:30 PM EST Mon. Mar. 19, 2012
Whether travelling for business or pleasure, it's information that gets you there. WorldMate has been keeping that information at the fingertips of travelling Blackberry and iPhone users for years and it's now available for Android devices.
The free WorldMate app not only helps you plan and book your trips, it also updates flight information and tracks rental car, hotel, meetings and locations, weather and other travel information, in a single place. No more scrambling through luggage for printed itineraries. The tool also sends reminders, provides driving directions along the routes of all your meetings, and links with more than 900 airlines to search for alternative routes when necessary. There's even a currency converter that updates daily.
Released in February, WorldMate 5.0.22 now provides hotel price alerts, can perform express bookings and communicates with Facebook to share credentials and update trip status. The new version fixes a bug relating to storing it in an SD card, plus repairs bugs specific to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone. A $5 gold version adds alerts of flight delays, cancellations and gate changes for more than 350 airlines and provides synchronization with Google and Outlook calendars.
