WorldMate Inc. today announced the release of WorldMate Live v3.0 for BlackBerry.

WorldMate is known as an industry leader in mobile travel services with over 3 million active customers worldwide. With a reputation like that, this app has to rock! Here are the updates/changes in version 3.0:

  • Yelp Local Search Services
    Find restaurants, shopping, night-clubs and other businesses wherever you go. Make the most of your time while traveling. Use Yelp to provide you information and reviews for hundreds of thousands of businesses in North America and the UK. Click-thru to reserve a restaurant table, get a map to the shopping mall or compare reviews for night-clubs.
  • Calendar Sync Changes
    WorldMate synchronizes your travel itinerary with your calendar. Get your flights in Outlook / Notes. Get your meetings in the itinerary at the correct time-zone – automatically!
  • Hotel Booking Improvements (Smart Hotel Search)
    WorldMate’s Hotel booking service was already available for both free and Gold users. In the improved version, hotels now appear in a list layout with thumbnail images and include special offer notifications. The hotel list is arranged according to the WorldMate optimization engine, which takes into consideration all of the user’s preferences, as well as the distance from the selected landmarks. The user can also sort hotels by specific criteria: Price, distance, star rating.
  • Rail Support in Automatic Itinerary Generation
    WorldMate’s parsing system now supports rail booking confirmations. Users can forward confirmation emails from Amtrak, Eurostar, TheTrainLine and others and have these bookings automatically integrated in their itineraries – just like flight, hotels and car rentals.
  • Map & Directions
    The “Map & Directions” feature opens the BB map service instead of a static map.

WorldMate Live is available for free at m.worldmate.com or as a premium Gold version available in the store for a yearly subscription of $99.95 with a free trial available.

The Gold version includes everything the free version has plus customized flight-update alerts, flight status, flight schedules, a travel directory and eligibility for customer support.
