Jetsetter, the invitation-only travel site from Gilt Groupe, is now offering exclusive access to iPad users. Since Jetsetter is first-come, first-served and deals are limited, serious vacationers will want to have the site close at hand when new flash sales go live at 2 p.m. CDT. Jetsetter for iPad puts this luxury in your lap.

Although any purchasing on Jetsetter will require a free membership account, iPad users get the bonus of being able to browse the deals account free (for now, anyway). This feature alone makes the app worth a download because Jetsetter’s imagery will make you wish you were everywhere else. Jetsetter for iPad is impeccably designed, and my favorite feature is the 360-degree panoramic images that are available for certain properties, each of which made me want to pack my bags.

Jetsetter only offers a few specials at a time, so this means you’ll want to check in with the app often — especially if you’re interested in a specific destination. All of the current sales can be accessed by swiping through the large photo at the top of the homescreen, but you can narrow your options by keyword, interests or location via the search bar. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway, the search function can also narrow results based on your travel dates. Jetsetter’s editors provide comprehensive reviews and details about the properties as well as user reviews and information on nearby attractions. If a sale strikes your fancy, you can view the available dates on a pop-up calendar and complete the booking directly through the app.
