Flight and Destination Info
While booking travel may be Travelocity for Android's big draw, the application does have a few additional features. The "Flight Info" button will take you to an interface where you can check flight schedules, arrival gates and times, security line wait times and general airport delays. While this all sounds pretty good, unfortunately the polish of the booking area didn't make its way over to this area of the app. The application has no feedback when you make a selection, which, combined with a delay between making a selection and the app changing screen, leaves you wondering if the app recognized your selection. Very frustrating when you are trying to quickly move through the interface. On top of that, not all of the information is very good. To look up gates and arrival times, you'll need the flight number, which someone who is picking up a loved one at the airport may not know. Additionally, the security wait times can be several days old, making them less than useless.
The Travelocity app also gives you the option to explore things to do at your destination. This area of the app gives you a long list of cities to choose from, and then provides nightlife, dining, events and general information about each city. While there are a number on cities on the list, unfortunately quite a few of them have little or no information, making me wonder why the city is even listed in the first place. However, for large destination cities like New York or Las Vegas, the app has a wealth of information.
Finally, the app includes a section to help you find gas in your area. Unfortunately, I live in an area where the app didn't list any gas stations, so I was unable to verify if the prices were even close. The interface, however, is fairly nice and intuitive.
