    The travel booking company has recently updated its iOS, Android, and Windows Phone applications.

    The app contains analogues of Kayak's website that allows the user to find flights, hotels, or hire a car.

    Users who purchased an Android handset from Telstra will have seen this application and its widgets pre-installed on their device.

    The application provides access to BigPond News, Sport, Weather, and can also track your mobile data usage.

    We find this app useful for its data usage and weather widgets.
