We took a look at the Worldmate travel app for back when it was in beta, and as of today's, it's bona fide and in the Android Market. In a nutshell, you sign up for Worldmate's free service, then forward your airline or hotel confirmation to Worldmate, which parses the info and shoots it to the app on your phone for some mighty fine organization. The Worldmate app also lets you book hotel room straight from the app, if you're in to that sort of thing. It also sports weather forecasts, a handy currency converter and travel notifications.
Check out our beta review for the full rundown, and get the presser and download links after the break.
