Air Canada Adds Online Booking to Mobile App

Photo by Xraijs_

Canada’s largest airline has released a new version of its iPhone app that allows mobile booking and seat selection. With Air Canada’s mobile app v3.0 you can search for and book flights, select seats, and store information and payment details, allowing for faster and easier repeat bookings.

The app’s interactive shopping feature allows flights to be sorted by price and departure and arrival time and compares fares over a period of three days. As in v2.0 of the app, flight tracking and mobile check-in are available. The app is free at the iTunes App Store and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad running iOS 3.0 and higher.

Next moves we’d like to see from the Air Canada mobile app are allowing changes to already booked flights and the extension of the v3.0 services to non-iOS smartphone users.

Hot Shopping: Double Duty for a Motorola Phone

The Motorola Atrix ($599.95) is the latest entry into the highly competitive smartphone market. This Android-based mobile packs techie-friendly specs, including up to 48 GB storage, a dual core processor, a five-megapixel camera and 24-bit colour. But what makes the Atrix a true standout is its complementing lapdock (sold separately, $329.95), which turns the phone into a laptop with access to all of your files, an MP3 player and more; available from Bell Mobility.
