WorldMate iPhone App: Trip Planner, Advisor, Travel Deals And More Rolled Into One

There are dozens (if not hundreds) of great tour planners out there on the App Store. Not every app makes the cut but those that do are the ones that people truly trust and rely on.

WorldMate is one such app which is, according to the last update from the good folks who built it, trusted by about 10 million people all over the world. Can we call it a competitor to Trip Advisor and other leading itinerary planners from the store? I don’t think so.

Note: Developer has taken down the app.

WorldMate is a class apart, and you’ll probably begin to love it right from the start. First off, it’s simple. Although my experience with travel planners is limited, one consistent characteristic I’ve noted is bloat. There are a lot of apps which have bloated features that really don’t serve a really legitimate purpose other than adding bullets to the description.

I’ve been playing around with WorldMate for quite some time but it’s been pretty crisp and clear with what it has to offer. There’s a ton of features in it, mind you, but it stays on course, distraction-free and does what it promises to do, perfectly.

The Features

Like most travel management apps, you begin your journey with using WorldMate by just forwarding your tour tickets (travel, accommodation, etc.) to a default email id. WorldMate promises to take care of the rest. Needless to say, it does a pretty good job of it because their database is pretty robust and massive.

Trips get listed in a clean, friendly and inviting way, so you don’t get lost amidst a plethora of your own schedules.

WorldMate app allows you to book accommodation and that’s one of the areas where a lot of work has been done concretely. WorldMate not only lets you find flight information for the next day on an urgent basis, but it also allows you book your accommodation from a really huge database of hotels around the world.

And this is where it gets interesting. You can pick hotels with special deals which have a separate tag/filter so you can find them faster. The app also pushes notifications of new price alerts and counter offers as and when they arrive.

And then, of course, there are these important things like local search powered by Yelp, helpful pointers like tip calculators based on a country, weather information/forecast, and even limo reservation in select cities.

WorldMate comes as a free app without any IAP. But it has two strong limitations: flight status and calendar sync. If you’re a frequent flyer and a power-user of these tools, you’re mostly looking at WorldMate Gold which will put you back by $9.99.

But considering all the features and the bloat elsewhere, I think that’s a decent price for a powerful but highly user-friendly app.
