Orbitz launches iPhone, Android app and lets you book and purchase flights on the go

Orbitz has jumped into the mobile space with an iPhone and Android app. While there are plenty of other travel apps out there that allow you to check flights, or even book hotels and cars, Orbitz says it’s one of the few that allow you to shop and book flights along with hotels and cars. So if you find yourself traveling all the time and you’re looking for a more convenient way to book travel, you might want to give the Orbitz app a shot. It’s free, after all.

Here are some of the features you can expect with the app:
