App use:
This app connects you to Kayak to use their travel web site. I can do that for free using my web browser and I don't have to let them read my calendar, get my device ID and let them read my GPS data to know where I am. They can even send emails using your account and does not inform you and reads your personal confidential data.

Using their web site means I don't have to pay a dollar. If I wanted the app it is free on Kayak's web site. The app also finds the good deals where they make commissions and not the best price for you if you are on a budget. (All of the travel sites do the same thing)

Main Page:
* Flights
* Hotels
* Cars
* Price alerts
* Flight tracker
* Trips

What I like:
It is a fast and accurate travel aid but it is not better than the same services available from Priceline, Expedia, Travelocity and others. They all gave the same answer and they all have apps that are available and free.

The app is fast and consolidates a lot of travel information access and data into one app. It is easier than searching the web for the same data but it generally will not give you the best prices.

What I don't like:
Like all of the other travel software they ignore the lower priced airlines for example (Southwest) even though they were 16 % less expensive on the airline tickets. Why, they don't get commissions like they do from the bigger airlines.

If you are really on a budget then you owe it to yourself to use the web and really shop the best deals on airlines and hotels. These apps want your business; they want to make a commission so why charge for the app and remove the ads?

"This PRO app is the same as the free app; the only difference is that there are is no text banner ads on result pages."

It says it right there on the product page - full disclosure. So it is rather silly to go jumping up and down about this being normally a premium app when there is a free one available. It's not like they are trying to fool anyone... seriously, folks really ought to READ before they go off hammering. But on the other hand, I do think the devs should put that caveat at the top of their product description; probably would have alleviated some the yammering (or maybe not).

As for the permissions and code, it is rather all legitimate for what the app offers to do. In fact, the dev team has removed permissions since it's last big showcase two years ago:

*Read only access to device state
*com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES
*Open network sockets
*Write to external storage
*Access fine (e.g., GPS) location
*Access information about Wi-Fi networks
*Access information about networks

The permissions of concern are all to do with GPS, and just like how any web browser, in fact EVERY web browser, from IE to Chrome to even Firefox, they want GPS to provide localized services and map provisions. And that is what this is, folks. A very specialized web browser.

So on the whole, this is actually a safe app for what it does, and it provides it's 99 cent value by removing advertising banners... yet I rather just do my own surfing and such. However, as a source of sheer one-stop convenience, it may appeal to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Best friend on the toad! December 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
On our honeymoon, many years ago, we took a car trip to places I wanted to share with my wife from my childhood. Not sure how long we would spend in each place- nor what was available- we would arrive in an area and look for places to stay that seemed nice enough to consider. My "plan" was to drive down "hotel row" and pick out several places and write down their names. Then we would look for a public telephone [the good old days] and call to ask the question, "What is special at your hotel/motel and why would I choose you?" Being a bit shy and a bit strapped for cash, this gave me anonymity and some insight before confronting a desk clerk. It was a perfect system for me and we found some special places.
With a cell phone and "hot spot" for my Kindle- this ap is a great modern update to my system and a real boon to our travels. I would recommend it to both honeymooners and road warriors- a great way to make a quick financial discovery or begin the sorting process before a personal call to find out that still important question, "What is special about your hotel/motel and why would I choose you?'

5.0 out of 5 stars Tested for myself November 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I traveled a lot but never used Kayak yet. With the diverse reviews, I wanted to see for myself. Downloaded Google's free one first with no option from them to buy out of ads. Looked up hotels from a destination I stayed at a lot and the price was the same.. Kayak compares many sources and lets you choose who to buy from - no login needed by Kayak, but the free one did have an (1) ad. Uninstall Google's.
Installed Amazons, ran the same search with the same results... and no ads. For a veteran traveler, this is a great tool, all options in front of you by category. Kayak even built in maps and their own custom photos (not just copy/paste off vendor websites). This is a great faotd, I am having to say thanks Amazon again!
