Stratham, NH (PRWEB) October 20, 2009 -
TripChill, a leading mobile service providing automated travel assistance to both business and leisure travelers, now offers a feature-rich web browser experience for all Android smartphones, including but not limited to the new HTC Hero. This unique web interface gives travelers using Android phones the ability to completely manage their TripChill itineraries while on the road. Travelers simply navigate to http://www.tripchill.com from their phone, and they are automatically redirected to the Android specific web interface to create an account and to view and edit their travel itinerary information. Using this powerful interface, the traveler can also configure friends and spouses to receive automatic updates about his or her travel status including flight departures and pending arrivals. This lets the friend get to the airport at the proper time to pick up the traveler, adjust a meeting start time, or to simply stop worrying about the traveler's whereabouts when travel issues arise.
TripChill has also released offline itinerary viewing for both Android and iPhone travelers. This new feature lets the traveler view their itinerary information when the phone is out of range or disconnected (Airplane mode) from their cell service provider, thus keeping the traveler's vital itinerary information at their fingertips at all times.
According to President Alex Shore, "We continue to improve the TripChill Mobile Travel Assistant to make traveling easier for our customers. We are now extending our powerful 'touch' mobile interface to travelers that are using Android smartphones so that they can view and update their itinerary information quickly and easily as changes occur during travel. This new mobile interface leverages the power of the advanced browser capabilities that the HTC Hero and other Android phones have, providing an intuitive touch experience that is simple to use when rushing around an airport terminal. Additionally, TripChill is now offering offline viewing of travel information for both Android and iPhone users. Our customers have asked for this feature so that they can review their upcoming travel information even when they are disconnected from their data service, allowing them to always be prepared for their next course of action during their travels."
