New BlackBerry app finds nearest Priority Pass airport lounge via GPS

Members of global airport lounge network Priority Pass can now find information on local lounges using a new BlackBerry app.

The app follows a few months after the Priority Pass iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps, and lets business travellers find their nearest lounge using GPS or a search function.

The basic information you'll need -- location, hours, and facilities -- is all there with a few swipes of your finger, which is a big plus when arriving at an unfamiliar airport.

The app's useful for people who aren't Priority Pass members too: in some airports, Priority Pass lounges allow pay-per-use entry for the equivalent of A$10-20. 

Membership details aren't needed to use the app, so everyone can use it, and it's easy to find a particular lounge's entry fee with a quick Google search.

The app is free and available now from the BlackBerry App World.
