Booking.com Launches New Android Application

Jul 13, 2015

Booking.com has just released a new Android port for its services; the new app allows users to research, book and manage reservations right from their mobile devices.

Details (per the press release) are below:

· Booking Now can be tailored to each user’s unique profile filtering by personal preferences

· Automatically generates accommodations suggestions based on location

· Geo-location technology provides step-by-step directions to the door of each property

· Includes over 670,000 properties in more than 79,000 unique destinations

Booking.com Principal Designer Stuart Frisby cites the need for quick results with regards to mobile-empowered travelers. “We know there is a growing demand for instantaneous and on-the-move travel with almost half of worldwide reservations made within 48 hours being booked on a mobile device, a significant portion of these being on an Android,” he says. “We aim to really empower our consumers through technology, enabling them to book accommodation that’s just right for them, no matter the screen or device. Booking Now for Android really is the ideal on-the-go solution and travel ‘buddy’ for all Android users.”

The app is available for free on Google Play

Can I Eat That 2

Although this app is intended for a very small market, maybe it’s exactly what some people need. It’s a very simple idea. The user inserts all the food they are allergic to, then they inserts the country they are currently in, and the app translates all of their limitations in the language of this country, so it would be easy to order food in the restaurants. The app can be downloaded for free from here: Can I Eat That? On Google Play.

Google Maps for Android Updated – Location History and more…

Google Maps for Android Updated – Location History and more…

Apr 5, 2011

Google Maps for Android received another “Latitude” update bringing it to version 5.3. This updated version brings users a “Location History Dashboard,” “Home Check-In,” and personalized aspects to the places rating system. These social centric features seem to be dominating the Google Maps updates as of late, which I find a tad disappointing. Especially when I’m waiting on features such as multiple destination routing, speed limits, and other “travel” related items. Am I asking too much? Probably.
