What I didn’t understand about the TripAdvisor app’s coming to Windows 8 is the fact that it wasn’t promoted as much as Facebook or even Flipboard. That’s why many didn’t find out that the official Tripadvisor app has been launched for Windows users. Well, now you know, so it’s time to have a quick look at it.

The official Windows 8 app lets you browse Tripadvisor’s entire travel database and doesn’t serve just like a cloak for the web interface, like many LinkedIn Windows 8 apps do, for example. As always, TripAdvisor can be used to look-up a hotel or location and when searching for a location, a list of hotels, restaurants, attractions and guides will be displayed for you.

Just like we’re used to with the web app of TripAdvisor, the hotels and attractions are sorted by popularity, but you can change that to make the sorting by price, business or family, price per night, rating, hotel class and a number of other parameters. You also have the option of clicking on a map to view places of interest near your location. The user interface is neatly designed and doesn’t make you wanna switch to the web browser. If you have a TripAdvisor account, you can log in to post reviews or save places. App’s description goes like this:

Millions of traveler reviews, photos, maps from TripAdvisor. Plan and have your perfect trip. With over 100 million reviews and opinions by travelers, TripAdvisor makes it easy to find the lowest airfare, best hotels, great restaurants, and fun things to do, wherever you go. And booking options for hotels, restaurants and flights are just a tap away.
