After the success of its official iOS client in the iTunes App Store, the popular online flight and hotel search service, iXiGO, has released an Android variant of the app in the Android Market. Just like its iOS counterpart, the official Android client of iXiGO vows to help you search for the best available travel facilities in terms of price and accessibility. Whether you wish to search for cheap flights, track flight status and delays, call your preferred airline services, locate worldwide hotels, travel sites and airports on map, compare various hotels by amenities, fares and distance, or make online bookings, iXiGO provides you with all the information you need, right on your mobile device.
Not only does the app provide you with comprehensive flight searching and filtering options for your trips, but also keeps track of your search history. All you need to do is tap Search Flights, specify your location of arrival and departure, date(s) when you would prefer to travel, number of travellers, the direction of journey (one-way or return), and hit the search button to get a list of all available flights that fit your criteria. The result list can be sorted/filtered according to arrival/departure time, number of stops, duration or air fares.
As mentioned earlier, various flight details such as airline service, phone numbers, airport maps (and Wikipedia links) et al can be viewed from within the app whereas the booking procedure itself can be carried out via the corresponding service’s website.
The flight tracking feature provided by iXiGO is quite commendable too. This particular feature of the app provides you with various filters that you can choose to track your flights according to Flight #, Route, Take-off or Landing information.
Last but not the least, the app’s comprehensive hotel searching, booking and filtering features, complete with star ratings, URL to the hotel’s website, email address, amenities, photo galleries, maps, directions, check-in/out dates, number of guests/rooms, and expense information are worth admiring too. Just feed in your preferred location, specific the required facilities, and let the app find the best and cheapest available options for you.
From the app’s settings screen (Preferences), you can specify the default currency units, metric system and the iXiGO website as per your location.
Despite sporting this many useful features, the app is available in the Android Market absolutely free of cost. The link provided below will take you to iXiGO for Android’s Market page.
