Business Travellers Get Organised, Thanks to iPhone

Posted December 4, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Iphoneocarina For those of you who own one, the iPhone has been a whole other universe of fun. Sure, you carry it around all the time in case an ‘office emergency’ crops up, but when you think no one’s looking, I’m pretty sure you turn on the iBeer application and pretend you’re having a pint in the office while listening to its realistic gurgling sound effects. Or maybe you have a go on the Ocarina app and rock out, hippie-style.

But some people may be surprised to find out that the iPhone isn’t simply a pocket-sized fun factory, it actually is pretty useful sometimes, too. For those of you that travel frequently for business, you might be pleased to find out that, in July this year, British Airways launched an application that allows passengers to check in using their iPhones. No more waiting in line!

And once you’ve checked in, there’s no need to sit idly by waiting to board the plane, you can always download another application on your iPhone and play with it … er, work on your next presentation. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, you can always download maps onto your iPhone, saving you from the embarrassment of getting lost in a new place. Perhaps the only downside to owning an iPhone is saying goodbye to any free time you might have, as you’ll probably spend it all popping virtual bubble wrap on the Bubblewrap application.
