The WorldMate FREE Android app will keep you in the know on all things travel, as well as provide you with a few extras. This application primarily lets you track trip itineraries by forwarding all your trip details to the email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. A view of the sample they provide looks really well organized, and since it is in the cloud is saved in case disaster strikes your smartphone. You can fully access your travel itineraries through www.worldmate.com. There is a bunch of other functionality in this app as well, some free and some subscription based. First, the subscription-based portion of this app revolves around the Flight Alert & Status portion of the app and will cost you $9.99 yearly. This is not that alarming since most flight tracker apps start at around $4.99, but this app does not seem to provide much more than those apps, except an extensive directory of hotel, rental car, and airlines, which I can understand, but would have to evaluate on a yearly basis to see if this cost is worth it.
The FREE features include: a currency converter, ability to make car rental and hotel reservations straight from the app (except I could not get the hotel portion to work) and the ability to access all airline flight information, but no function to make airline reservations. Also, you do get flight updates, itinerary updates, and a widget for your Android. WorldMate could be considered a must have travel app, especially for those who travel regularly; however, the yearly subscription is a bit steep in my opinion, but may actually be worth it. I suggest you test drive it to determine for yourself if its worth in usefulness is worth that yearly fee. Check out our other Android app reviews for more Android apps. Crazy Mike
