The thought that I would die alone on at mile 51 of a 60 mile bike ride was bad.

Not being able to tell anyone I was going to die at mile 51 because my cell phone was dead was infinitely worse.

I learned a valuable lesson that day. Apps, and poor “battery planning” can play havoc on the best laid plans. I was lucky. A car was bound to come along sometime. The what-if’s rang in my head. What if this had been a real emergency? Read more…

It’s been a little more than two weeks since the last booth swept out of the Las Vegas Convention Center for this year’s International CES. By all accounts, it was the busy, jam-packed, swag item-infested spectacle that tech addicts crave and tech journalists bemoan.

While there was a jaw-dropping amount of new ideas, gadgets and screens, we’ve waded through the spilled ink to find a handful of highlights for travelers.

One of the most frequent questions we’ve received via social media in the past year is, “when will CWT To Go be ready for the BB10?”

Today we have your answer for you. The BB10 CWT To Go app is available for download from BlackBerry World.

It joins previous versions of the app for iPhone and iPad, Android and Android tablets, Windows Phone and the Kindle Fire. The app is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian and contains the same functionality as our Android app, including flight alerts, mobile flight check-in and more.

The award-winning CWT To Go™ is a free download and available to travelers whose companies use Carlson Wagonlit Travel as their provider. Even if you are traveling for reasons other than business, you can use CWT To Go for personal travel, something I do frequently so I can keep my airline itinerary, hotel and rental car info all in one place and still get the flight alerts for free.

If you are not a CWT traveler, we whole-heartedly recommend WorldMate, the consumer-oriented app by our mobile subsidiary. If you want to download the app for another device or need our FAQ or more information, check out our website.

Also, CWT To Go has been nominated for best mobile solution at the EyeforTravel Mobile Innovation in Travel Awards. If CWT To Go has helped you on the road, please vote for us!

WorldMate, has been nominated as well, for best mobile app. Vote for them here.
