Social integration & price alerts
We admit it. Registering and logging into an app with an email address and password is a pain. The good news is that we’ve just integrated WorldMate 2.5 for iPhone with Facebook, so that you can now register and log-in to WorldMate with your Facebook credentials. It’s fast, easy, and no more “what was my password for this app?” again!
In keeping with the social theme, it’s now even easier to post your trip updates on Facebook. For those of you with iPhone OS5, you can tweet your travel adventures from WorldMate as your trip unfolds.
One last thing- Do you ever wonder if the hotel room you booked is really a good deal? With our new Price Alert service, we’ll put your mind at ease by notifying you if there’s a better price for that hotel room, 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 then re-book the better deal through us.
Traveling keeps getting better and easier
WorldMate has done it again, making traveling better and easier. With new and improved travel services making travel easier and more enjoyable, we not only have the Android Market’s “Editors Choice” award, but we’re also an Android Market “Staff Picks”.
So, what’s new in 5.0?
Price Alerts: Did you get the best hotel deal? WorldMate now automatically helps you save with our Price Alerts service.
