Travel itineraries made simple.

Why we like it -- WorldMate is a mobile repository for your travel plans. Forward your travel confirmation emails to trips@worldmate.com, and it creates a folder for each trip.

The app lets you search for local services (from Yelp) and hotels (from Hotels.com), and you can quickly view weather forecasts and currency conversions. You can also perform some simple edits of your itinerary from within the app and share your plans with others.

Improvements we'd like to see -- WorldMate didn’t recognize some of the travel documents we forwarded, even though they were from popular travel sites. The app needs to fully lock down this feature before it reaches must-have status.
