SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Ticker®, a leading inspirational travel website, today announced the availability of its multi-function travel deals application in both the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. Available free of charge, the new app brings travel inspiration and up-to-the-minute deal notifications into the palms of users' hands. To help celebrate, starting today Travel Ticker is giving away one of three large-value Visa® Gift Cards per day for the next three days. Smartphone users can enter for their chance to win by simply sharing a Travel Ticker deal with their friends via the Twitter functionality right within the app itself.
Through the new Travel Ticker mobile application, users can instantly be alerted when their favorite destinations go on sale, share any of the deals found via text, email, Facebook and Twitter or just daydream by browsing beautiful photo galleries of the properties and destinations that are currently offering deals. And if that weren't enough, the more adventurous users can even book spur of the moment trips directly by clicking on links to supplier websites or by using the click to call functionality.
Just like the geo-targeted Travel Ticker newsletter, top deals seen in the app will be based on the user's location. Additionally, users can set alerts through the application based on their travel desires. For example, if a user has been dreaming of a weekend getaway to Las Vegas, the app can be customized to only send updates and alerts for Travel Ticker deals to that particular destination.
"We've taken great strides to make our Travel Ticker app experience the best it could be, and we're excited to make our handpicked deals available to consumers wherever they are," said Angela Lyda, Senior Editor of Travel Ticker. "Users can do everything they can do on our site and even more. They can browse our inspiring trips with high-quality content that's been optimized for mobile usage, share deals with their social networks, or create customized deal alerts, all in the palm of their hands."
To help celebrate the arrival of travel inspiration at your fingertips, Travel Ticker is also hosting a giveaway for app users to win one of three Visa Gift Cards – two will be valued at $250 and one will be worth $500!
