If you have ever travelled with your BlackBerry and NOT used Worldmate, now is a great time to check it out. Worldmate has been updated to version 3.0 and brings with it a lot of changes to an already amazing application. A quick look at the changes shows just how helpful Worldmate can be and personally, I live by this app when travelling. New additions include:
- Yelp Local Search Services - Find restaurants, shopping, night-clubs and other businesses wherever you go.
- Calendar Sync Changes - WorldMate synchronizes your travel itinerary with your calendar automatically!
- Hotel Booking Improvements (Smart Hotel Search) - In the improved version, hotels now appear in a list layout with thumbnail images and include special offer notifications.
- Rail Support in Automatic Itinerary Generation - WorldMate’s parsing system now supports rail booking confirmations. Users can forward confirmation emails from Amtrak, Eurostar, TheTrainLine and others and have these bookings automatically integrated in their itineraries – just like flight, hotels and car rentals.
- Map & Directions -The “Map & Directions” feature opens the BB map service instead of a static map
Worldmate is currently available with a free trial to check out the full Gold package services. If you do wish to keep the Gold package after the trial it does come in at $99.95 per year, but for someone who does a lot of travelling it is well worth the cost.
