In addition to pre-installing the app, Samsung is using TripAdvisor content—photos, reviews and opinions—for its travel apps:
Travel Widget – It will showcase TripAdvisor images of popular travel destinations and attractions around the world. Users can touch the on-screen star icon to save places to their “Saves” list on TripAdvisor, or tap the image to see details in the TripAdvisor app, which include reviews, opinions, photos and contact information.
Lock Screen Slideshow – When the phone enters “locked” mode, users can opt to see travel photos of the world’s most visually striking destinations on the device’s high-definition display.
City Information in Samsung Story Album – Samsung Story Album helps build a digital photo book by seamlessly connecting travel content to user’s travel photos. TripAdvisor lets users add more enriched city information into the Story Album.
TripAdvisor has added exclusive features to its application, including Single Sign-On with a Samsung ID, the ability to load details of hotels and flights found on TripAdvisor into the phone’s native calendar app; and the ability to load contact information for a hotel or attraction to the Galaxy S 4’s Contacts list.
The free app is available in 20 languages on all major mobile platforms, as well as on mobile browsers and tablet devices via its website, www.tripadvisor.com.
