The KAYAK app works best to compare flight and rental car prices. For other services, you may want to go elsewhere.

KAYAK.com is a well-known travel comparison site, and its mobile application presents much of the same information in a smaller package. The app compares flights, hotels and rental cars, as well as providing a spot for trip itineraries. It also allows you to track flights and receive alerts when airfares change.
The KAYAK app offers up an airline directory, airport information and news on airfare trends, but most users are trying to find the best possible price for an airline ticket and hotel room. We like how easy it is to input a desired flight and get results listed by price, either in coach, business or first class. It’s also easy to use a filter, such as nonstop only, to find the best possible alternative. Rental cars are similarly easy, but we found that several listed hotels chose not to advertise rates and instead asked us to call the hotel for information.
All in all, KAYAK is a good app, but probably best suited to comparison shopping for flights and rental cars.
