Official Orbitz App For Windows 8: Orbitz

Orbitz is the official Orbitz app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 devices which allows you to book flights, rent cars, book cruises, vacation packages etc. all in one place, and while you are at it, it also allows you to save a lot of money as well. Orbitz is designed in a way that all the important links of the app are located at the top of the screen, and upon clicking on them, the app shows the relevant information at the center of the screen. Once major drawback of the app is that it doesn’t follow the Windows 8 design language, and rather looks as if someone just took the website interface and made an app out of the same, but apart from that, the app is fully functional and works great.

Orbitz is available for free from the Windows App Store.
