Kayak: iPhone users buy travel online, Android not so much
Paul English, co-founder and chief technology officer of Kayak, says that people who have iPhones actually buy travel online and people who have Androids don’t really.
If you want to reach mobile consumers who’ll actually buy travel online, should your company put resources into iOS apps or is Android the better way to go?
Actually you need both, but consider the experiences of travel metasearch site Kayak.
Kayak has attracted more than 10 million downloads of its mobile apps for iPhone/iPad, Android, Blackberry, Nokia, Windows Phone 7 and HP Touchpad, with iPhone and Android notching first and second place, respectively, in terms of apps which have scored the most downloads, says Paul English, co-founder and chief technology officer.
