Free travel content in Media Lounge

We are delighted to welcome Noah Lucas as a guest author to the Expedia Viewfinder for this post. Noah is a senior product manager at Expedia who specializes in flights and itineraries for the Expedia mobile app.

At Expedia, we continuously are looking at ways to enhance the customer experience. We’re travelers ourselves, so we understand that the journey doesn’t start and end with a booking. Travel can be complicated so it’s important to us to find new ways to make your trip more enjoyable.


With the goal of making the journey to and from a destination as delightful as the destination itself, we’re pleased to introduce a new feature within our Expedia app for iPhone® and iPod touch®: Media Lounge. Within this feature, we carefully have chosen content to complement your travel experiences.


To access Media Lounge, download the Expedia app (or download the latest version) from the App Store. Click on, “Trips,” and then “Extras.” Here, you will find the Media Lounge with a suite of content labeled, “Featured” and “Recommended for You.”


Our featured apps are premium content that is offered for free. Selections in the recommended section include free and paid apps our team has hand-picked as great travel resources. New content will be available at the beginning of each month.*


To kick things off, our first spotlight is a cool photography app, Over, which allows you to add text and artwork to your photos. Regularly $1.99, Over is available for free through Media Lounge.



As you can see in the demo, once you’ve selected an app to download, the app will appear on your iPhone or iPod touch as any other download normally would. You easily can return back to the Expedia app to check for new content or to plan, book, or monitor your trip.

We’re proud to be the first travel company to present a customer experience of this nature. For now, Media Lounge is available in the Expedia App for iPhone and iPod touch. Download it today for free from the App Store. For more information on Media Lounge, please visit:
