Did you forget the name of the hotel you stayed at in Seattle? Or how about the flight you took to Orlando? WorldMate’s newest update for its Android app can help you with that. Right after debuting on WorldMate for iOS, past trips arrives to WorldMate for Android. Past trips feature enables you to access all of your past trips information right from within the device and find all the details about your previous flights, hotel stays and rental cars. And if you need to re-book the same hotel room or fill out an expense report, it’s now easier than ever.


In addition WorldMate is now fully optimized for devices running the Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. And last but not least, are you using a HTC and a Droid device? Then you’re in luck! The new version features UI improvements for your screen resolution.

A Successful 2012, with an Eye on the Future


2012 was a phenomenal year for WorldMate. We have been overwhelmed by the outpour of positive feedback from our customers, and the recognition from the travel industry and partners we’ve received. Because of this, we thought we’d take a moment to look back at some of the achievements from the past 12 months.

Throughout the year, we’ve been working hard to ensure all aspects of your travel needs are covered, whether it’s by extending our support to almost every travel provider out there, or by introducing our all-new hotel booking experience for iPhone and Android users. We’ve also made sure your mobile booking experience is more efficient and convenient, so you can easily spot the best hotel deals available. And to top it off, we’ve added our game-changing ‘Price Alerts’ feature that ensures you’ll never overpay for your next hotel stay. This year, we’ve introduced the highly anticipated WorldMate app for iPad, which takes full advantage of the amazing retina display, making your trip planning an even more enjoyable experience. In addition, we’ve also introduced the WorldMate app for Windows platforms.

Among the many highlights of 2012 was being awarded the prestigious Editor’s Choice Award at Google Play, featured by Apple on the ‘What’s hot’ and ‘Essential apps’ sections of the App Store and also winning the EyeForTravel Best Mobile App award.

In May, we launched the WorldMate API, enabling developers to create a virtually limitless array of applications using WorldMate’s platform with its ever-increasing knowledge. We are blown away by its immediate popularity, as well as the number of developers who eagerly rushed to join and create their own apps.

And last but not least…WorldMate reached a monumental milestone this year when we were acquired by Carlson Wagonlit Travel. This acquisition allows us to continue providing the most innovating products, faster than ever before.


Our focus on innovation and the customer experience is what contributed to an outstanding year. We’re extremely excited about upcoming releases, and are looking forward to exceeding not only our expectations for 2013, but yours as well.


Here’s to 2012! We’ve got a lot more on the way, so hang on for an extraordinary 2013!
