TripAdvisor modifies mobile app to bring extras for iPad users
TripAdvisor has upgraded its existing smartphone application.
TripAdvisor has upgraded its existing smartphone application for the iPhone to include features especially for users of the sister iPad tablet.
Until now the iPad app has run with the same functionality as the mobile version – user lists, hotel search, reviews, etc – but TripAdvisor has released a new version today to specifically take advantage of the iPad’s larger screen size and format.
Central to the new app is a large map-based search system, similar to the well-received map search on the Kayak iPad app which Steven Hafner has admitted is better than the metasearch’s version on the iPhone.
