RIM unleashes the BlackBerry Travel application
RIM stated that they would be announcing super apps this year at the Mobile World Congress. This is probably just the first of a few to come. The Travel application can also remind you of any upcoming trips that you have on your agenda. The app does this by checking your e-mails and your LinkedIn profile automatically.
Here are all the features that make BlackBerry Travel a super application:
-The ability to view/create/edit current & future itinerary items including flight, hotel and car rental.
-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.
-Update your LinkedIn status with your new location, share trip details with your contacts or search for contacts traveling to the same location.
-Track flights, check the current weather or use the currency converter in preparation for your upcoming trip.
