you travel a lot, a digital travel assistant might becomes handy and during the
past weeks, I had the pleasure to test Spb Software's new Spb Traveler 2.0 - an
expert mobile travel assistant application. The new Spb Traveler 2.0 offers a
revolutionary animated finger-friendly user interface, a subscription-free
flight search engine (powered by OAG), an animated 3D Globe with real satellite
image of the sky, and a Geo Game for fun and learning.
Spb Traveler provides valuable tools and information to travelers such as world
time and global weather service, tip calculator and multilanguage phrase book,
as well as currency, unit, and clothing size converters.
In all it does, Spb Traveler 2.0 has the speed and usability of an Spb Mobile
Shell-powered interface, topped off with high-class 3D animation and gestures.
