Editors' review

WorldMate Live has most everything the business traveler would want or need to smooth out the logistical bumps that befall every trip. The application itself is free, and so are the world clock, weather service, currency converter, and mapping functions, which sync in real time between the device and WorldMate's servers. Users will have to upgrade their subscription, however, to take advantage of the true trip-saving qualities: flight alerts and meeting reminders that are pushed to the phone, directions, a travel directory, and anytime customer support.

The application has become more attractive over time. The same can't be said of WorldMate's Web site, where you'll enter the bulk of your itinerary information to sync to your mobile app. Its antiquated feel and limited look-up ability make it the weakest link in the system. However, the functionality of WorldMate's online portal won't hold you back.

Casual users with sufficient storage space can benefit from having WorldMate Live's go-to interface for quickly organizing and referencing important travel details and adding new items as they come up, even if they stick with the free version. It sure beats scouring your e-mail in-box for separate messages containing your flight plans, hotel arrangements, and meeting details.

    "I use it every week."

    June 05, 2011   |   By mdicar0

    Version: WorldMate Live for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    Forward emails to it and it builds itineraries
    Adds items to my blackberry calendar
    Warns me when flight info changes
    Allows me to quickly search for alternate flights

    Cons

    If your flight itinerary is updated (like if you get a message from delta) it doesn't automatically change your worldmate itinerary.

    Summary

    Totally worth it to get the pro version. I travel a lot for work and I find that if I just route 1 or two hotel reservations through worldmate every other month then I get the pro version for free.

    "Best product on my Blackberry Storm"

    July 30, 2010   |   By kevinrhodes5

    Version: WorldMate Live (BlackBerry) 1

    Pros

    Complete management of my trips, automatic notification of delays and cancellations, ability to automatically fnd alternate flights.

    Cons

    Does not put my rental car times in correctly.

    Summary

    This is the best BB app i own. The newest feature, Trip Catch, intercepts my email from the travel department, sends it to Worldmate and within 60 seconds, my trip is in Worldmate. I don't even have to send the email any longer. I travel almost every week and would be lost without this.

    "Organization and simplicity"

    April 05, 2010   |   By bgivey

    Version: WorldMate Live for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    1) Easily syncs my trips to my BB
    2) Great flight alerts and up to the minute updates
    3) OGA Guide access let's me see all the travel options real-time
    4) Real-time weather for cities I'm traveling to during the week

    Cons

    1) Some iternaries sync better than others
    2) Flight look-up interface could be better and have multi-city capability

    Summary

    I travel almost every week and use WorldMate(WM) on almost a daily basis have been using the application for a couple of years (first on a Palm and now on a BB). The application keeps getting better - I recommend it for anyone who travels more than a couple of times a year. The only thing I dislike about the application is it now has some partners (i.e. Hotels.com) included in the software that cannot be suppressed. Don't let that hold you back from trying the software! I had the free version for a long time before I paid for the real-time updates. The udpates have saved me from a couple of horrible airline re-routes.
    Overall 4 out of 5 - keep it up WorldMate!

    "Love it, love it, love it"

    July 25, 2008   |   By mabelsc

    Version: WorldMate Live (BlackBerry) 1

    Pros

    The feature to simply forward email confirmations to WMLive, which will automatically enter all pertinent information plus sync with my BB calendar, which syncs automatically with my work calendar and manually with my home calendar, has got to be one of the best innovations since sliced bread.

    Cons

    Information such as reservation/confirmation number and seat assignment don't get synced.
