WorldMate Debuts on AT&T MEdia Mall

Today WorldMate Live joined the ranks of a select number of BlackBerry applications available for purchase on AT&T's MEdia Mall.  AT&T  Wireless is a huge wireless operator with about 80 million subscribers, so this represents an exciting new distribution channel for us and we our honored to have been selected to participate. Kudos to our Product and Engineering teams for all their hard work making this happen.

For those of you who are AT&T subscribers, you can go to MEdia Mall on your PC to purchase your WorldMate Live Gold subscription.  Even better, you can visit the "Cool Tools" section of the MEdia Mall WAP site or launch the MEdia Mall 2.0 BlackBerry app to download and purchase with with a click of a button.  The charge will be included with the rest of your monthly phone bill.  No more digging for that credit card!

If you don't have the MEdia Mall app store already on your AT&T BlackBerry, you can download it by texting MM2 to 386 and wait to receive a text message (standard messaging rates apply).

What the Critics Are Saying About WorldMate for Blackberry 3.0

Since the release of WorldMate for Blackberry 3.0, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Now you don't have to take our word for it--PC World, CNET and other sources are confirming that our Blackberry travel app is your essential business travel companion.


 In his post "Why Road Warriors Need Blackberry Travel App," Al Sacco of PC World writes,

"I've been using WorldMate to organize and manage my trip itineraries and related information for a couple of years, and I honestly can't even imagine traveling without it at this point. And with the frequent addition of valuable new features like the ones mentioned above, a great application for road warriors just got even better."


Crackberry is holding a giveaway of 10 Gold Subscriptions to WorldMate for Blackberry. Adam Zeis of Crackberry writes,

"If you have ever travelled with your BlackBerry and NOT used Worldmate, now is a great time to check it out. Worldmate has been updated to version 3.0 and brings with it a lot of changes to an already amazing application. A quick look at the changes shows just how helpful Worldmate can be and personally, I live by this app when travelling."


Jessica Dolcourt of CNET writes,

"WorldMate Live has most everything the business traveler would want or need to smooth out the logistical bumps that befall every trip...The application has become more attractive over time."
