If you own a WM Treo and do a lot of traveling, you might be interested in this updated travel assistant app by Spb Software. Spb Software has released Spb Traveler 2.0 - an expert mobile travel assistant application. The new Spb Traveler 2.0 offers a revolutionary animated finger-friendly user interface, a subscription-free flight search engine (powered by OAG), an animated 3D Glove with real satellite image of the sky, and a Geo Game for fun and learning.
Winner in Smartphone & Pocket PC magazine's Best Software Awards, Spb Traveler provides valuable tools and information to travelers such as world time and global weather service (powered by Foreca, the trusted provider of msn.com), tip calculator and multilanguage phrase book, as well as currency, unit, and clothing size converters. In all it does, Spb Traveler 2.0 has the speed and usability of an Spb Mobile Shell-powered interface, topped off with high-class 3D animation and gestures.
I watched Sbp Software's video of Spb Traveler's features, and the animated Globe looks really cool. The Globe displays actual real time sky images on top of the globe. It also shows sunny and cloudy parts of the planet, plus night shadowed regions. If you have trips scheduled in Traveler, your trips show up on the globe also.
