BlackBerry Travel, a new app that provides BlackBerry smartphone users with an all-in-one integrated tool to plan, book, manage and share travel activities is now available in Singapore.

The BlackBerry Travel app offers convenient push notifications and seamless integration of travel itineraries and flight status updates into the familiar BlackBerry Calendar. When a new booking confirmation or itinerary arrives in the users email inbox, the BlackBerry Travel app is automatically updated with the relevant itinerary details, which makes travel planning and management easier than ever.

With the BlackBerry push technology, the BlackBerry Travel app can keep users informed and in control of their itineraries by monitoring flight statuses and promptly providing notifications about changes to their flight information.

The app can even identify potential omissions or scheduling concerns with the itineraries, such as missing accommodations or timing conflicts, and provide users with suggestions.

The BlackBerry Travel app also brings together tools that travelers need while planning on the go, including:

Hotel booking
Currency converters
Weather forecasts
Local search functionality

In addition, BlackBerry smartphone users can share their travel information with colleagues, friends and family over email or through LinkedIn, directly from the BlackBerry Travel app. The LinkedIn integration allows users to search for people in their network who will be in the same city, send messages to contacts and update their status.

The BlackBerry Travel app also features a web component that allows users to book flights and car rentals, as well as print and edit itineraries, from their computer.

The BlackBerry Travel app is available as a beta download from the Test Center category on BlackBerry App World. It is free and works on select BlackBerry smartphones running the BlackBerry 5 OS (Device Software) or higher. Phones include the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Storm and BlackBerry Torch.
