Review WorldMate

Tariq Abdulla
10Best
Clean interface, see your important travel details instantly, fully-featured free version, no ads
Could use a larger widget option with more details
WorldMate for Android helps you to keep on top of (flight based) travel planning. Perhaps the coolest feature is that you can forward any travel booking emails to trips@worldmate.com, and it automatically figures out what flights, hotels, rental car you have booked for when. It will then, for example, identify any nights of accomodation that might be missing. If you like, you can even book hotels straight from within the app; which I imagine could be very handy in a pinch, or during unplanned trips.
I am impressed by the accuracy with which WorldMate interprets booking emails. I tried it out with a non-standard email from a travel agent, as well as a UK Train booking, and it worked in each case. Booking emails, especially those for flights, are oftentimes incredibly lengthy and impenetrable. Pulling out the useful bits of information just by forwarding the booking emails is a really nifty way of keeping organised.
It's a common problem for me that a travel companion, or people I am visiting, will ask what time a particular flight is leaving or arriving. It's usually impossible for me to answer these questions without digging back through my emails. But with WorldMate I can use a widget to permanently show the important details of my upcoming trips, and feel a whole lot more organised. You can also send an email summary for the whole trip, which is very, very useful; especially for letting your travel companions know what the whole plan is.
There are several enticing "gold" features, including calendar integration, and real time flight status updates, and you can unlock these either as an in-app purchase or for 3 months at a time by making a booking through the app. WorldMate has some other neat features like weather forecasts for your destinations, a map to show all the places you are going to. On the map, you can click back and forwards between your waypoints in order. I particularly like the clean and tidy look, and the way things are organised in chronological order. This app is a keeper.
