Expedia has released a new app that now allows users to search for hotels and flights at the same time. Using a single search box you can enter a city name, landmark, or airport code and the app will find hotels and flights without having to enter dates specific details at the start. This will save travelers valuable time in trying to match up different flight and hotel offers.
The app also includes a Collections section, which presents you with vacation destinations if they are not sure where they want to go yet. Once you’re sure about your vacation locale, the Expedia Tablet App has an integrated trip planner you can use. It takes care of booking, lets you view upcoming travel details, and can share your itinerary with family and friends via email or text message.
You can pick up the Expedia Hotels & Flights on the App Store for free.

Expedia just updated its iPhone/iPod Touch app to add a digital hub called the Media Lounge.
The Media Lounge presents users hand-picked content meant to make travel easier and more enjoyable. It allows them to download premium content every month via iTunes – stuff like travel guides, wi-fi finders, and more. The first Media Lounge offering is Over, a photo-editing app (regularly $1.99) that enables travelers to personalize photos by adding text and artwork.
All this is in addition to the saving, booking, and itinerary tools already present in the app (which, outside the update, are also available to iPad users).
The Expedia app is available for free on the App Store.
