iOS devices have fast become an essential tool for regular travellers who need to be able to work while on the move. Such devices also come in handy when in need of a way to organize future trips. One newly updated app to help people along the way is WorldMate.
WorldMate does pretty much everything anyone could need when it comes to planning a trip. There's an itinerary manager which covers flights, hotels, hire cars and meetings. It's possible to search flight schedules, book hotels (on the iPhone version), search via Yelp, view maps and directions for all itinerary items and check out the local forecast. It's also possible to check out whether LinkedIn contacts are located nearby, ideal for conferences.
The app is free but regular users can opt to upgrade to WorldMate Gold which offers pushed flight alerts, real-time flight statuses integrated into the itinerary and the ability to sync the calendar.
To celebrate the new update, WorldMate Gold is available for $2.99 for a limited time and normally priced at $9.99.
