App of the Month: Orbitz
Posted by: Christine Bulson
Orbitz just unveiled a revamped app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad which provides searching for and booking flights, hotels and rental cars. A study showed the app was twice as fast as similar apps and a test group was able to find and book a complete trip in less than seven minutes. Kayak is a competitor in the app field but the new Orbitz app does appear to be faster and has a clean, simple look. No doubt this will be a popular app since in the last year the number of consumers using a mobile device to shop for travel has doubled.
