Because travel plans can be a stressful process any tool that can make it easier and faster is greatly welcomed. This iPad app does just that by helping you find hotels and flights. Where this app differs from others though is the fact it doesn't just list the cheapest flights instead it sorts them by "agony."
So what is sorting by "agony"? Well the app takes into account a number of factors such as how many stops you'll make along the flight, how long you'll be traveling, and more. These factors can greatly influence your decision just as much as price does. The flights will all show up on a timeline, which is used to help you visualize which flight is best for you. It certainly is one of the more unique flight and hotel apps out there.
When it comes to finding a hotel you'll view the results on a map so you know exactly where you'll be located, which again can greatly influence your decision.
Hipmunk Flight & Hotel Search was updated on Sept. 18, 2012 and currently has 446 customer ratings with an average rating of four and a half out of five stars.
I really enjoyed the way this app sorted the results because just as it suggested sometimes price isn’t the determining factor and giving you all the information really helps you make the best selection. Could this be be the best app to book flights for you?
