After redesigning its iPad app with combined flight and hotel search in early September, Expedia on Wednesday gave its iOS app some more love by issuing an update which makes the software compatible with iOS 8 and the latest iPhones.
Expedia now supports the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, respectively, so you’ll see more content and scroll less.
The online travel service, which was originally started by the Windows giant Microsoft, occasionally offers free iPhone and iPad applications related to traveling as part of its new ‘Media Lounge’ service.
Apple has featured Expedia as one of the App Store’s Essentials.
Expedia 4.1.1 changelog
- Now compatible with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Optimized for iOS 8
- Said “Goodbye” to more bugs
If you haven’t used the app yet, they’re taking $25 off your first app hotel purchase of $100 or more. Details here.
Two months ago, Expedia launched a bunch of iPad features, including a single search box with combined hotel and flight travel search, collections of themed travel destinations “to spark interest in future journeys,” as well as integrated trip planning, booking and more, all shared across your iOS devices, Expedia on the desktop and mobile Scratchpad.
The universal 27.9-megabyte download requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 7.0 or later.
