Expedia launched an all new updated mobile app today for both Android and iOS. Bringing new flight info, an updated interface to browse and search across hundreds of hotel properties and airline flights, and special mobile-only deals. The updated app is only available in the US at this time, and brings functionality closer in line with Expedia’s web-based features.
Expedia promises instant flight sorting across over 200 airlines and hotel searching across over 140,000 hotel properties as well. Flights can now be sorted by price, departure or arrival time, or duration of flight. Hotel listings now have updated visuals, and rooms can be sorted by price, deals, ratings, popularity, or distance from a specific address.
In addition, the updated mobile app has special mobile-only deals of up to 60% off the regular prices listed with the travel service.
“Travelers have millions of different flight options and theExpedia app update is the first to marry the simplicity travelers expect from mobile with the underlying intelligence and comprehensive choices they’ve come to expect from Expedia,” said John Kim, a senior vice president at Expedia. “The Expedia app puts all of that technology and big data – and the confidence it brings – in the palm of your hands with a casual simplicity that masks the underlying e-commerce power behind it.”
