Here's an Early Look at Expedia on the Apple Watch

Posted by Jessica Fisher on March 10th, 2015

With its release just around the corner, Expedia has shared some details about their app designed for the new Apple Watch.  The Expedia app gives you all the information you need for travel with actionable notifications for flight status, gate changes, hotel check-in and check-out, and more.

Expedia also uses Glances, which lets you swipe up on the watch face to scroll through the most relevant information. The app saves you time and aggravation by keeping track of all the details, itineraries, departure and arrival times, gate numbers, terminals, check-in and check-out times, maps, directions, and phone numbers.

Expedia will be available alongside the Apple Watch on April 24.

The New Expedia App Combines Hotel and Flight Searches

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

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.

Flight Unlimited is One Pretty Urban Flight Sim

Posted by Rob Rich on December 2nd, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Flight simulators have been extremely popular within certain circles, especially the PC crowd. Hundreds of thousands of logged flight time, tons of mods, even elaborate homemade rigs... It's one of those things that's just insanely popular among a specific set of people.

With that rabid fanbase in mind, TAS Games is preparing to release Flight Unlimited - a less expansive but no less impressive single-aircraft simulation. Players can freely explore the immense city and parts of the surrounding suburbs in their adorable little Cesna. Exploration is the key element here, as there don't seem to be any official tasks or missions to complete. It's just the player, the plane, and a city full of things to buzz, land on and crash into. And it sure looks pretty.

Flight Unlimited is available on the App Store now for $2.99. iPhone 3GS users and below need not apply. It's currently only planned for the iPad (1 and 2) and the iPhone 4 (and 4S).

Take to the Skies and Aim for First Place in Ikaro Racing HD

Posted by Rob Rich on October 19th, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

NuOxygen has just released "The Racing 3D Flight Simulator," Ikaro Racing HD for iOS devices, and it's looking pretty neat. Players will race through a diverse set of environments (and 22 tracks), from sprawling cities to winding canyons, jockeying for first place. It won't be easy, but it makes winning that much more satisfying.

The game is designed to steadily increase in difficulty, so that players adjust naturally to the curve. It's meant to be more pleasant than panic-inducing, with cameras that highlight the beauty of the landscape or the details of the planes so that the visuals can truly be appreciated. Of course, spending too much time drinking in the details are a good way to end up face-planting into an obstacle. A danger that becomes even more real when the dynamic weather system opts to replace those clears skies with a thunderstorm.

Ikaro Racing HD was designed with the iPad 2 in mind, but it's also available for most other iOS devices. It just requires some tweaking in the options menu first. Aspiring air jockeys can grab it off of the App Store right now for free.
