Your Daily AppGratis: Hotels.com

Every day, TriplePoint client AppGratis locates an app that they think ought to be free for a day. We download and take a look for ourselves to let you know what awaits you – why not? It’s free.

So you’re stuck in the middle of Fresno and your friend-of-a-friend has just let you know that he’s “super sorry but the couch is actually spoken for, bro.” It’s been a long day and you’re not in the mood to travel much further; you just need a place to hang your hat for the night. The Hotels.com app has you covered — and AppGratis will chip in to foot the bill. Today’s app is a mobile rendition of the main lodging location site, and it comes packed with a rather robust set of phone-specific features.

The obvious addition, of course, is being able to locate the closest hotels to your actual GPS-provided location, along with prices and available deals, in case you need a last-minute room someplace. But, beyond that, the app actually comes with nearly all the details of the website, including hotel reviews, photos, nearby points of interest, and so on — plus the ability to store and call up your reservation details even if you can’t get online. Anyone who’s stood in the lobby frantically trying to get a signal to dig their confirmation code out of email will tell you that’s a handy feature.

The app is completely free, obviously, but never let it be said that AppGratis isn’t sweetening the deal: Use the code MOB2013N and save 10% on any booking.
