Each week Apple selects a paid App Store app and makes it totally free. CultCast listeners may know this already, but I’m a huge fan of Kayak for creating trip itineraries and ordering plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc.
There’s a free version of Kayak in the App Store that runs on the iPhone and iPad, but there’s also a pro version with additional features that normally sells for $1.
App Store description:
The #1 Mobile Travel App. Includes flight and car search, hotel search and booking, flight tracker and My Trips, so you have your full itinerary at your fingertips.
– Compare flight, hotel and car rental deals
– Book your hotel, right in the app. Just choose KAYAK as your booking option
– Track your flight status
– View and manage your trip itinerary
– Look up baggage fees
– Access airline numbers and airport info
– NEW feature exclusive to Pro version: Airport terminal maps for over 100 airports
You can get all this awesomeness for free this week. I’ve saved a lot of money using Kayak, and I’m sure you will too. The service’s website also offers all of the above features for free. Create an account and your info will be synced automatically across apps and the web. Booyah.
