Following the massive success of Skyscanner’s iPhone and Android apps, the flight comparison site now launches on iPad.
Skyscanner’s mobile apps have received over four million downloads since their launch earlier this year and the much anticipated iPad app is set to see this popularity soar.
The update features brand new functionality with a fully interactive globe (pictured right) allowing users to browse flight prices by mapping them across the world. By rotating the globe, users can browse flight prices to any country, or select a country and zoom in to see prices of flights to cities within that country.
The new feature joins the already popular price chart which shows users flight prices each day across a whole month, or even year, allowing them to find the lowest fares.
Barry Smith, Director of Global Data Services and Mobile commented:
“Because Skyscanner allows you to search for the cheapest flights without entering specific dates, or even destinations, it’s always been extremely popular for inspiring travel.
“The new ‘explore’ globe function takes that to the next level; the iPad is the ideal medium for this which makes searching and browsing for flights interactive, easier and fun.”
