The New Expedia App Combines Hotel and Flight Searches

Posted by on September 9th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

OMW – On My Way: Anti-Texting While Driving App Might Just Save Your Life

Posted by on July 16th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Texting and driving is a serious problem. According to the National Safety Council, mobile use is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel with a crash occurring every 30 seconds involving texting and driving. OMW (On My Way),by Studio Tentpole, is a free iPhone app that is trying to change that. OMW believes that many of these texts are to people you’re on your way to meet.

The app allows users to connect with the people you are going to meet and then the app creates a custom webpage where invited friends can follow your distance and ETA from any phone, tablet, or computer. The page is updated in real time so there is no need to constantly text where you are and when you might arrive.

Studio Tentpole says “The idea for OMW came when cofounder Mark Tholking was picking up his wife from her office in downtown San Diego. Every day, he would text his ETA, and every day, whether he was early or late, one of them ended up waiting outside, annoyed. He decided to build an app that could let him focus on driving while giving her updates on his location until he arrived.”

In no time flat, OMW became the featured app in the Travel section of the App Store. You can pick it up for free from the App Store.

This Week at 148Apps: January 7-11

This week at 148Apps.com, we helped everyone looking to expand their iOS device’s musical footprint with a round-up of Bluetooth speakers. Site editor Rob LeFebvre says, “Bluetooth is a fantastic technology. It lets me connect my iPhone or iPad to a ton of different devices, including speakers, keyboards, other computers, headphones, and mice without wires. The latest version, 4.0, draws very little power and features an increased signal range of up to 100 feet.

148Apps received three different portable Bluetooth speakers recently, and we decided to put them all through their paces, to better understand which ones might be better for specific uses. We’ll be looking at the Braven 600, the CubeEdge, the Disco 2, and the Logitech Boombox.”

Get more of Rob’s take on these units at 148Apps.

Over at GiggleApps.com, Amy Solomon was in a traveling mood, as she reviewed Geography Drive USA, calling it, “A wonderfully engaging educational app that teaches about American geography in ways children will love.
As one can imagine, it is not uncommon for friends and family to ask me to recommend apps for their children in grade school as many apps out there are for preschool-aged children. Geography Drive USA is a title that I can easily recommend as an application that is both highly educational and a lot of fun.”

And at AndroidRundown.com, our KickStarter Spotlight of the week covered Pixel Kingdom. Joseph Bertolini writes, “Today we’re looking at a game that is the brainchild of a college sophomore from Central Florida and it is a fresh take on the game-type that was popularized by games such as Plants vs. Zombies; where waves of enemies come down set lanes, and it is up to the player to deploy defenses down each specific aisle. Named Pixel Kingdom it is a small twist on this idea is that here these defenses are actively moving down their lane in an endless battlefield against the ranks of evil. Thrown in are a handful of bosses that fill multiple lanes, such as random dragon attacks.”
