TripAdvisor is constantly pushing the limits of mobile innovation using GPS and social technologies, to help travelers plan and have the perfect trip with features such as City Guides' "Point Me There" and "Trip Journal" offerings.
City Guides – City Guides offer convenient smartphone access to a wealth of detailed destination information including traveler reviews and opinions on hotels, restaurants and attractions, as well as suggested itineraries and offline-accessible interactive walking tours. The City Guides are automatically synched with the freshest TripAdvisor content available so users can access the latest traveler reviews and opinions on the go. This feature also offers walking tours and insider tips that can be viewed on the app without a data connection, including in-depth information on neighborhoods, history, culture, architecture, weather and transportation. Access to offline information is particularly useful for travelers abroad, who can download the apps before they go, sparing them from expensive roaming charges.
Point Me There – Once a traveler has selected a hotel, restaurant, or attraction in their destination, "Point Me There" will guide them there using the phone's GPS and compass.
Trip Journal – Trip Journal offers travelers a fun and convenient way to document their trips to the 82 popular destinations covered by City Guides. Travelers can use City Guides during their whole trip, from start to finish--from finding things to do and places to eat and stay while on vacation, to sharing experiences during and after their getaway.
Our apps are highly acclaimed on all major mobile platforms including iOS, Android, iPad/tablet, Nokia, and Windows.
