BlackBerry app of the week: WorldMate

By David Flynn, December 16 2010

Here's an app which will streamline all of your business trips for the coming year!

The old way to manage your travel involves plugging your itinerary details into your calendar and keeping track of assorted booking reference numbers. The new way is to use the WorldMate service and avoid all those time-consuming chores.

After creating a free account at WorldMate.com all you need to do is forward any booking confirmation emails you get to a WorldMate email address and they'll be added to your personal WorldMate itinerary.

The WorldMate for BlackBerry app then automatically syncs with the website to provide full access to your airline, car, hotel and other transport bookings in one place. It also has handy info like weather forecasts for your destinations, live currency converter and more in the app.

We suggest setting a forwarding rule in your email client to forward any emails you get from your regular travel providers to WorldMate for zero-hassle itinerary importing.

WorldMate is a free download from BlackBerry App World.
