All flights-Skyscanner launches in the Windows Phone Marketplace

Skyscanner

Here's a nice treat for those who travel a lot, Skyscanner is now available for free in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Based off of the site, the app is wildly popular on the iPhone and Android and now has been brought over to our OS by Distinction, the team behind Cocktail Flow and AppFlow--so you know it has to be good. From the press release:

"In addition to allowing users to search millions of routes on over 1000 airlines to find the cheapest flights in seconds, the app also lets users track prices of selected flights with the unique ‘Live Tile’ function of Windows Phones. Users can pin selected flights to their start screen and the prices automatically update every hour. "

Skyscanner

Awesome. We just launched it ourselves and it sure makes us want to fly somewhere--smooth and elegant is what this app has. Plus it just feels kind of smart the way the UI is laid out. So for you frequent fliers out there, you'll definitely want to try this one out. Pick it up here in the Marketplace.

Skyscanner launches app for Windows Phone

Monday 12 December 2011

The free app will be available to download across all Windows Phones, including the new Nokia Lumia 800.

In addition to allowing users to search millions of routes on over 1000 airlines to find the cheapest flights in seconds, the app also lets users track prices of selected flights with the unique ‘Live Tile’ function of Windows Phones. Users can pin selected flights to their start screen and the prices automatically update every hour.

Barry Smith, Skyscanner Director of Mobile commented:

“With almost 5 million downloads across iPhone and Android devices, the Skyscanner app has been extremely popular with mobile users and we’re very excited to be bringing it to the Windows Phone platform.

“The unique ‘Live Tile’ feature, which is exclusive to the Windows Phone app, is expected to prove very popular in allowing users to pick a flight and monitor the price as it automatically updates.”

Nick Hedderman, Head of Consumer Marketing for Windows Phone UK at Microsoft commented:

“I am delighted to see Skyscanner on Windows Phone. Not only is this yet another great brand within our Marketplace, the team at Skyscanner have built the app to take advantage of the unique features of Windows Phone, such as using a Live Tile. Consumers will find using the Skyscanner service effortless.”

Keith Varty, Head of EDX from Nokia added:

“Skyscanner is a fantastic addition to the ever growing range of apps hitting Nokia Lumia smartphones - a welcome consumer favourite that saves time, money and effort for our users.”

The Skyscanner app is available free from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Am I missing something or is the live tile functionality not included yet? Doesnt work for me, definitely cant see a way to pin multiple flights.

Once you select a particular flight/round trip option, you'll find the pin button at the bottom of the screen. I haven't booked any trips using it yet, but I'm sure it will be very handy next time I travel.
