Brand new feature available in your app (Android and iPhone): book an hotel!

Posté dans In english le novembre 15th, 2013 par wipolo – Commentaires fermés sur Brand new feature available in your app (Android and iPhone): book an hotel!

Wipolo  iPhone and Android updates are available on the stores! THE brand new feature of these versions is: the hotel booking with 3 clicks! Now let us tell you why you’ll love it!

Our leitmotiv in the Wipolo team is to simplify your traveler life and make you save time! We designed this booking hotels feature with that goal in mind.

Concretely, how does it work? We preset hotels in your destination for you, and you can book one of them within 2 minutes (not more, we counted).

You save time because you don’t need to fill the dates and city field: the hotel search is based on your trip plans needing an accommodation. And they are quality hotels: located in the city-centre, high-score rated, the wifi is included (we are connected travelers, don’t we?!)… Of course the best available rate is guaranteed, by Booking.com.

In your application, you can discover your hotel selection in the “booking” button available everywhere in the app. All your plans needing an accommodation are listed here with the hotel selection linked to.

You can also book your hotel directly in your trip itinerary. A fake hotel plan appears in your trip (only if you need an accommodation) between two transportation plans.

Your opinion matters. Share with us what you think of this brand new feature, and help us to improve it! Please leave a comment below or drop us an email to support@wipolo.com.

Posté dans In english le juillet 8th, 2013 par wipolo – Commentaires fermés sur Wipolo Pro is now free: receive notifications concerning your transportation

We decided to offer you a great gift for your summer holidays (available even after): Wipolo Pro evolves and is free from now! It means you’ll receive real-time notifications when you travel indicating your train track/ your flight boarding gate, and their delay.

Every day we work on the same mission: to simplify your traveler life! Thanks to this brand new feature you’ll save time: you won’t go to the train station or to the airport whereas your train or flight is delayed or cancelled. Wipolo would have told you on time! And you won’t have to wait and be jostled in front of the information boards any more: Wipolo would have indicated what is your train track and boarding gate.

How to receive your notifications on your smartphone?

> You use the Wipolo iPhone app

It already works! All you need to do is to make sure you accepted to receive notifications from Wipolo when you used the app in the first times.
To check you accepted the notifications or to activate them, here is our beautiful tutorial explaining how to do!

You use the Wipolo Android app

The only thing you need to know (and to do) to receive your notifications is: download the last Wipolo Android app update! It’s available on Google Play since July, 8th.

Here is a tutorial explaining how to set the notifications you want to receive.

Do you have any question concerning that feature? Drop us an email to support[at]wipolo.com or send us a tweet @Wipolo! We’ll be very glad to know if you enjoy our gift, don’t hesitate on sharing your feedback with us!

Have a great summer and happy travels!
