Travelocity launches android app

Travelocity is launching its Android application, which has the same great features as its other mobile applications, allowing customers to access daily deals, book flights and hotels, and discover destination information.
We’ve seen huge growth in Android bookings within the past year,” said Beth Murphy, Travelocity’s vice president of product marketing. “Our customers continue to look to their mobile devices as a single place for flight and itinerary details, great travel deals and in-trip destination information. We’re excited to bring the Travelocity app to Android users.”

Along with being able to shop and book both flights and hotels directly, the Travelocity Android app gives customers the ability to:
• Access Travelocity itineraries
• Shop and book Top Secret Hotels - unpublished rates that are up to 55 percent off Travelocity’s regular rates for the same top hotels on the same day
• Shop daily deals for hotels
• Get up-to-the-minute information on flight status
• View seat maps
• Check out traffic and airport driving directions

In addition to these useful travel tools, the app offers travelers a variety of Frommer’s destination guides, with local information on popular events, activities, and restaurants.

The Android application is free to download from the Android Market. .




In Europe today, City.Mobi is celebrating the success of its new guide to London.

City.Mobi offers the most comprehensive mobile travel guides available, with over 800 cities in 200 countries listed. Each is developed by the City.Mobi team to combine into a single global travel directory.

However, each city retains its own mobile identity via a dedicated domain. Already on offer are Brussels.Mobi, Paris.Mobi, Sanfrancisco.Mobi and Sydney.Mobi.

London.Mobi is the latest in this illustrious line up, offering click to call functionality – which means no scribbling down telephone numbers.

Most entries are also linked to websites where users can quickly access more detailed information if needed.

Other key features include information on accommodation, restaurants, attractions, entertainment, nightlife, shopping, and transport.

City.Mobi guides include user reviews and traveller utilities such as a translation guide, currency converter, news and local weather guide.
