Online travel portal MakeMyTrip has launched mobile apps for smartphones and iPhones with an aim to make travel planning fast, hassle-free and secure.
The features of the app are designed keeping in mind today's social media friendly mobile users as it allows users to share their itineraries on Facebook and Twitter, thereby enabling them to share instant travel updates. Going beyond ticketing and planning travel, the application uses the device's GPS capabilities to find nearby restaurants. Online transaction can also be made through the app, which is secure and safe and can be done by credit or debit card as well as netbanking.
Amit Somani, chief products officer, Makemytrip.com, says, "MakeMyTrip was one of the top five most-downloaded travel apps in India, with only the BlackBerry app on offer. This response encouraged us to extend our product offering to other popular mobile platforms as well. With this launch, all smartphone users will now be able to have a seamless experience through their devices."
These apps are available for free download on Google Play and Apple App Store. The online portal had earlier launched the BlackBerry app.
