Review: Skyscanner App

When the folks at Skyscanner asked me to review their iPad App I didn’t have to think twice, since I’m a big fan of their website and their apps. I’ve found amazing deals through their website during the last years and with the iPhone and iPad app now it’s even more handy. I’m going to… Read more »
