How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

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?'

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, useful app November 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
So many trolls in the reviews. Just needed to say that.

1) Yes, this app does require permission to run and modify things, as does nearly every other app out there. Calm down.

2) Yes, doesn't search some of the low cost or budget airlines. That is why it is *your* obligation to find the flight you want. Kayak is just a tool to help out. Oh, and more often than not, kayak does have the lowest prices.

Good app, I personally like the price alerts, flight trackers, and airport information functions, can't really speak about the hotel finding, etc.

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?

5.0 out of 5 stars people need to do research before posting naive reviews. November 26, 2012
By Erica
Verified Purchase
To the person who asked why would someone pay for this, the same reason people pay for most apps is because they hate ads & want adfree version. To the person who said kayak only uses airlines they can make money on, They only earn $ on the referrals so why wouldn't they want as many airlines as they can get? Of course if it were up to them they'd have them all but some airlines don't want to participate for their own reasons. And to the people always whining about permissions then having the nerve to talk about Amazon not doing its job is ridiculous & these reviews are always worse on the faotd, how many apps have you developed? Do you realize that most of these permissions are used for our convenience to make apps run better? Granted sometimes there are some apps that go overboard with permissions when they don't need them maybe be used to learn basic stuff but not to the extent that people act like! I wonder how much info you unknowing give away while browsing the internet on your home computers! How many people use Facebook & play Facebook games? I'll bet you don't check the"permissions" on the Facebook games like you do with these faotd! I bet it's more info than what kayak is getting from you when you use this app!
It's a free AD free app that is lated out for browsing on yourphone or tablet. It's the same deals you can get from their website that many people use so they must not all be bad deals. As with any traveling deals website you have to shop around! This is just 1 more option.

Just got this and used it on a flight yesterday. Especially liked the ability to check on my flight status. Since the weather was bad, I was concerned about the flight being delayed.
