TripAdvisor Signs Deal with Samsung Galaxy S4

TripAdvisor has announced that its mobile app is now pre-installed on to the new Samsung Galaxy S4 – and is the only travel app that will be pre-installed on the new smartphone. TripAdvisor on Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung is also using TripAdvisor content – including millions of photos and over 100 million reviews and opinions – to power its own travel apps:

  1. Travel Widget – Designed to inspire, the Travel Widget will showcase TripAdvisor images of popular travel destinations and attractions around the world. Users can touch the on-screen star icon to save places to their ‘Saves’ list on TripAdvisor, or tap the image to see details in the TripAdvisor app, which include reviews, opinions, photos and contact information.
  2. Lock Screen Slideshow – When the phone enters ‘locked’ mode, users can opt to see beautiful travel photos of the world’s most visually striking destinations on the device’s high-definition display.
  3. City Information in Samsung Story Album – Samsung Story Album helps build a digital photo book by seamlessly connecting travel content to user’s travel photos. TripAdvisor lets users add more enriched city information into the Story Album.

TripAdvisor has added exclusive features to its application, including Single Sign-On with a Samsung ID, the ability to load details of hotels and flights found on TripAdvisor into the phone’s native calendar app; and the ability to load contact information for a hotel or attraction to the Galaxy S4’s Contacts list.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Samsung to preload the TripAdvisor mobile app on the new Samsung Galaxy S4,” said Steve Kaufer, Chief Executive officer and co-founder of TripAdvisor. “The combination of more than 100 million TripAdvisor traveller reviews and opinions with our inspirational travel photos on the latest Samsung device will provide a perfect companion for modern travellers.”
