Booking.com is one of the most accessed websites for hotel reservations in the world. The website has just upgraded its previous hotel booking app, called Tonight, to a completely new application called Booking Now.
The new app was updated so that its users can make hotel reservations faster than before within 48 hours; the app also allows for immediate bookings.
Booking Now app allows its users to personalize the search results according to where the user is traveling. It can also indicate the users’ preferences like price range and other accommodation options.
The user has to swipe through the recommendations shown by the app on a single page and choose an apartment, hotel room, hostel rooms and other accommodations with only two taps. The new Booking Now app is faster than Booking.com’s app for iOS devices.
The user can also see search results on the Booking Now app based on the street location the user is currently at. The new Booking.com app uses GPS technology to provide its users step-by-step directions on how to get to the chosen hotel or other accommodations.
Booking Now app also features predictive analytics which helps provide more personalized hotel recommendations based on what the users previously looked for. The more someone uses the app to book something, the more the app intuits what the user might like as an accommodation.
The new Booking Now app comes with a new design and was designed to work on iPhones and iPods that run on iOS 7.0 and later. The app supports full resolution on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
Booking Now app has more than 580,000 accommodations in its data base, ranging from hotels, bed and breakfast, villas, tree houses and igloos.
The app is backed by the Booking.com website that has 24/7 customer support and provides the largest network of verified accommodation reviews in the world: more than 40 million so far.
Booking.com’s latest app competes with other popular booking apps, especially with Hotel Tonight, which is known to offer deals on hotel reservations booked in advance to up to seven days.
