Created lovingly for the developer community by Mashery.
Uses Hotwire's API to find fantastic hotel deals within the vicinity of a postal code.
You will need the following to get started -
- appMobi's XDK. Free Download - http://www.appmobi.com/?q=node/27
- A Hotwire API key (Register at http://developer.hotwire.com/member/register).
Before you can begin using this app, you will need to get an API key from Hotwire at http://developer.hotwire.com/member/register. This will also give you a Single Sign-On Mashery ID with access to hundreds of other APIs.
Once you have obtained your API key, assign the API key to the variable api_key on line 1 of the file hotwire.js, like so -
var api_key ='your_api_key_here';
Hotwire's APIs allows developer to access travel deals and pricing information. The APIs available are:
- Hotel Deals
- Hotel Shopping
- Rental Car Shopping
- Travel Ticker Deals
In this demo app we utilize the Hotel Deals API. In the source code you can observe how easy it is to make an API call, parse the API response and return the information back to the end-user.

Monetizing your apps built on top of the Hotwire API is possible with the Hotwire affiliate program. When you are approved, you modify your API calls to include your affiliate ID. Qualified airline, hotel and rental car bookings will earn you money as end-users find and purchase travel deals.
