Offline travel app puts little-known destinations on the map
Monday, May 21, 2012/
An app called Triposo describes itself as the perfect app for travellers, with in-depth destination guides for “not just Paris, but also Palembang, Porto and Pula”.
In other words, the app offers information on even the most remote parts of the world. It is available on the iPhone and Android platforms.
“Open the new Triposo app and it will actively suggest to you where to go now. And they are clever suggestions,” the website says.
“We look at your location, the time of day, the weather and opening hours to present you with some great options.”
“So, yes, you can expect us to come up with a good coffee place nearby when you need a shot of caffeine.”
Triposo not only lets users log their trip effortlessly, it creates an “awesome looking” travel log.
The app also works offline, so even detailed city maps don’t need an internet connection.
As travel-related services continue to pop up all over the place, why not develop your own app for travellers, inspired by Triposo?
