WorldMate and RIM Partner for the BlackBerry Travel App


Both WorldMate and RIM let us know about a new partnership to create the BlackBerry Travel app. In an email from WorldMate, the company states: “WorldMate and BlackBerry have partnered to evolve your travel experience with the new BlackBerry Travel app – available now in US, Canada, UK and Spain. More countries & languages will be available throughout 2011.”

The app is an all-in-one travel service that allows you to search for travel options; plan and manage flight itineraries; book hotels, transportation and other activities; and tap into your social networks by connecting with friends and family while traveling. Features include:

  • Itinerary Management – View, create, and edit current and future itinerary items including flight, hotel, car rental, meetings, public transportation and more.
  • Automatic Trip Catch – Never manually enter an itinerary! BlackBerry Travel automatically acknowledges email itineraries sent to your BlackBerry email address and populates the details into the BlackBerry travel app
  • Social Sharing – Easily view, search and connect with LinkedIn contacts traveling to the same location
  • Notifications & Alerts – Receive push-based notifications and alerts for itinerary updates, flight reminders/alerts and connections information
  • Flight Schedules – Find flight schedules by city, airport and date
  • Hotel Search & Book – Search and book hotels, and rank results based on location, price and quality
  • Local Search – Search for local dining, shopping, nightlife and more, with access to maps, reviews and click-to-call via a Yelp-powered local search tool
  • Tools – Easily access world clocks, currency converters, weather, flight status updates and maps from one app!

The BlackBerry Travel app is available as a beta download beginning today from the Test Center category on BlackBerry App World.

    Installed and registered fine on my torch but it doesn’t work.. I try to sign in and it always comes back with connection failed.. Tested using the connection wizard and the connection is fine. Not a good start.

    If you travel frequently I would highly recommend. Just the fligjt status updates makes it an invaluable tool.
