Some apps are developed for a specific platform, like iPhone’s iOS, Google’s Android, or BlackBerry, while other apps work across all of the main platforms. Some of our app articles and reviews cover the main platforms, while others are focused on iOS and Android. We apologize for any confusion this may cause, but the app world is still very new and maturing, and we are doing our best to bring you the latest travel app information for as many platforms as possible.
