Apple Developing Own Travel Planning App

August 2, 2010 at 1:16 PM | by | Comments (2)

How attached are you to your travel planning iPhone apps like Kayak or TripIt? Hopefully not too much, because Apple has filed a patent for their own travel app seemingly to blow these third party apps out of competition.

The US patent office published the patent applications last week and they were unearthed by Unwired View. There's also plans for a hotel booking and one for high fashion retail in the works from Apple, because they obviously know where the money is. The travel one however is what we're focused on.

According to CNET, the travel app is designed to "reserve travel plans, check in to flights, and deliver airport and flight info." It won't be just some app pulling FlightStats info either. It's supposed to allow you to "request in-flight services and provide arrival notification to people waiting to pick up the traveler." It'd also throw some destination information in there as well, like restaurant recommendations. It doesn't sound wholly earthshattering, but it will give the many other travel booking apps a run for their money.

There is no release date for the app, and it may never come to be. So keep that in mind.
