Your Business Travel Just Got Better with New Features on The Upside App

If you're reading this in the Upside app, skip down to step two of making sure you're set for success with auto-updates, push notifications, and location access. We'll explain how enabling these functionalities will transform your app into the mission control you need every step of your business travel journey. Don't worry if you haven't downloaded the app just yet, we'll help you dive right in!

Make Sure Your Upside App Is Set For Success

Before we get into the new features, let's make sure you are all set up:

  1. Download the Upside app, which is available for iOS and Android. Just click here (unless you've already completed this first step).
  2. Turn on auto-updates. If it's already turned on, you'll always have the most up-to-date version of the Upside app. If it's not, make sure to update the app, because these new features will blow your mind.
  3. Enable your push notifications. Our push notifications ensure that you're always alerted with any trip changes - and they inform you when new features have been added to the Upside app.
  4. Allow the app to have location access, so it can both help you find the nearest airports and hotels, and provide you with quality support throughout the entirety of your business trip.

New Features

Gone are the days of toggling between apps to handle your business travel needs. With all the new features on the Upside App, you’ll have everything you need in one place. How is this possible, you ask? Well, let me explain…

You can now check-in to your flight on the app…

You heard it right. No need to track down a check-in email or figure out which airline you decided to fly with. The Upside App has got you covered, giving you access to check-in for American Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and JetBlue.

You’ll get trip alerts, because business trips don’t always go according to plan…

Don’t you hate when you get to the airport and find out that your flight has been delayed a couple hours? The Upside App will send you push notifications ahead of time, so you can enjoy that cup of coffee at home, rather than on your ride to the airport. And that’s just part of it - this also includes gate changes, cancellations, and any other unforeseen travel modifications.

You’ll have one app with ALL your trip details in one place…

The Upside App has all your hotel and flight info in one easily-accessible place. You won’t have to dig through old emails to see your gate assignment or call the hotel to see what kind of room you booked - it’s all on the app. Plus, no need for a separate GPS app, they’ve got your business travel directions handled.

You can choose what class you fly...

You now have the ability to filter what flight class you want with the Upside App - whether it’s first, business, economy, or premium economy, it’s as easy as one tap.

You can procrastinate on booking that hotel…

Whether you have a last minute business trip - or you just like to wait until the last minute to book your hotel, the Upside App will take care of you. With our “Book a hotel for tonight” feature now available on the app, you can easily book a hotel the day-of, putting your no-vacancy worries to rest!

At this point, do you even need any other apps? You can probably delete them all - well, maybe except for Twitter, and maybe Instagram, and email is pretty important too.

Let Upside know what other features you think should be added to the Upside App. Who knows? Maybe they’ll get added to the next update...
