Whether you are a frequent or just an occasional flyer - BlackBerry Travel for BlackBerry 10 is a must have application to have on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. In fact I don't travel very often but there are some handy features within the app such as the currency converter and world clocks that I refer to on a regular basis.
But when it is time to fly the app really kicks into action. As you will see below there are a whole host of superb features within BlackBerry Travel. With the ability to add multiple email accounts to the app you can be sure that which ever account receives the flight details the app will pick it up.
Notifications work like a dream and you will receive plenty prior to your trip. Not only to remind you, but you will be given access to the full flight details. I've used BB Travel on older BlackBerry devices and I certainly wouldn't fly without it.
- Trip Status Sharing – It’s now even easier to post your trip updates on BBM, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. With Trip Status Sharing, you can keep your friends and colleagues up-to-date on your travel adventures immediately as they unfold.
- Flight Status Sharing – BlackBerry Travel has always kept you up-to-date with real-time flight statuses and with BlackBerry Travel for BlackBerry 10, you can share this information with your colleagues, friends and social networks. If your flight is delayed, canceled or changed terminals, you can easily and quickly inform others and make sure they know when and where to pick you up from the airport.
- Price Alerts, Change Offers and Upgrades – The new Price Alert service with BlackBerry Travel for BlackBerry 10 helps ensure you’re always getting the best hotel deal. It will put your mind at ease and automatically notify you if there’s a better price for the hotel room you booked, a comparable hotel for a cheaper price, or if there’s a much better hotel for slightly more. In many cases, you can cancel your original booking without penalty and re-book the better deal through BlackBerry Travel.
- BlackBerry ID – With BlackBerry ID, you’ll never have to login to BlackBerry Travel again. You’ll have instant access to all of its features as soon as you launch the app. Even on your first time using BlackBerry Travel, BlackBerry ID will automatically fill in the registration form for you.
BlackBerry Travel is free to download so go and grab it now. It's a real gem.
