TA has become The World's Most Popular Travel App

Interesting press release earlier this month referencing TA applications having been downloaded over 100 million times now.

The number of downloads having more than doubled in the past year and up 6x from 2011. According to data from Distimo! Clearly the travel world is changing!


We have become active users of the TA City Guides, finding them quite useful as quick reference maps during our city travels. Nice to have quick access to recent reviews of restaurants as when looking around for a bite to eat.

1. Re: TA has become The World's Most Popular Travel App

I had heard this recently also.

It's quite a remarkable achievement considering the number of travel and travel related apps now available. I wonder how it would compare to say, something that is not directly travel but travel related, like the XE Currency Exchange app? And it would interesting to see how it compares across all apps, especially the 'giants' like Facebook and YouTube
