In a latest report from RIM, a new app that provides BlackBerry® smartphone users with an all-in-one integrated and contextual experience as they plan, book, manage and share travel activities quickly and easily, is now available in Kenya and Nigeria.
You can download the beta version today from the Test Center category on BlackBerry App World™
The BlackBerry Travel app also brings together tools that travelers need while planning on the go, including:
- Hotel booking Currency converters
- Weather forecasts
- Local search functionality
In addition, BlackBerry smartphone users can share their travel information with colleagues, friends and family over email or through LinkedIn®, directly from the BlackBerry Travel app. The LinkedIn integration allows users to search for people in their network who will be in the same city, send messages to contacts and update their status.
Unfortunately for Nigerian users, this may not add much value. The database does not have much Nigerian contents.
Fasmicro will give Nigeria a Hotel App on Android by the end of this month. It will contain many hotels, tourist locations, top restaurants, starting from the Eastern part of the nation.
