Cleartrip has announced the newest member in its mobile app family with the launch of Cleartrip for iPhone. Pulling out another first from its’ stable, Cleartrip’s iPhone app brings its split-screen search experience that revolutionized the way flights were searched on desktops, to mobile.
Thrilled to be the first in the world to bring it to the iPhone, the split screen design was invented by Cleartrip when it launched 6 years ago. It just works; it’s the easiest, funnest way to select flights and see the total price, all on one screen.
Smaller, simpler, smarter and sexier; the iPhone app sports a refreshing new design that has been handcrafted with love to give customers the best flight booking experience on an iPhone, ever.
Here’s a quick walk-through of the magic on Cleartrip for iPhone:
The new search form hosts some handy features like geolocation for selecting departure airport for current location, recently searched airports and the ability to easily swap the “from” & “to” cities with a tap.
Also neatly packed are the recent searches, so that they can be searched again with just a touch.
The wait is over! Cleartrip’s unprecedented two-column split-screen search experience for round trips, finally comes to the mobile. With this convenience, selection of departure and return flights happens on the same screen on the iPhone. It not only enables flight selection in the easiest way possible, but also offers the special round-trip flight discounts, wherever applicable.
Attention to detail prompted the creation of small placeholders for selected flights, so that short-listed flights are not missed while scrolling to check more options. Sort options can be used to reorder the results to check the cheapest, the fastest or the earliest flight. Additionally, there are filters that help narrow down the search by sorting results by specific airlines, flight timings or even non-stop flights.
Once flights are selected, payments can be effortlessly made using credit cards, debit cards or a net banking account. Alternately, by signing into the Cleartrip Account, payments can also be made using Expressway, India’s first and only one-click checkout convenience. The cards selected on Cleartrip’s desktop site are also available on this app.
If not already enabled, a fresh Expressway account can be activated by saving card details through the app. It is as safe & secured as the desktop site.
The magic doesn’t end there. Even coupon codes can be redeemed through this app, enabling greater savings.
The Cleartrip for iPhone app allows customers access to all their previous flight bookings with Cleartrip, regardless of whether they were booked through the desktop site or on Cleartrip Mobile.
Built using cutting edge technology, while the current version of this app comes with flight bookings within India only, an update with other Cleartrip products is not too far away. So if you have an iPhone, give Cleartrip for iPhone a spin and tell us what you think. Love it, critique it, we’re all ears. Stay tuned and spread the iLove.
