Vacation season is upon us. The age of smartphones has also taken over, which is why we often find ourselves searching for travel apps to do the things every traveler needs to before embarking on a cross-country trip: buying tickets, choosing places to visit, booking hotel rooms and so on. Triposo in their newest update which was released this month have added some features to their iOS app which will delight travelers who are familiar with the travel app. Those who haven’t heard of Triposo until now, will definitely want to check it out if they’re planning to go on a European roadtrip or something similar.
Triposo is generally a run-of-the-mill travel application that will let you check out the places that you can visit and choose the regions and areas that you would like to see while traveling. Triposo acts as a travel guide for iPhones and iPads, and it’s a free application that you can get from the iTunes app store. Triposo is also available for Android, and if that’s you preference, you can still get it for free from the Google Play Store.
Travel guides are always useful, especially in a digital format like Triposo. The added features in the May update only make the app more interesting as it offers a more comprehensive experience for travelers. Through Triposo, you will be able to book and buy tickets for hotel rooms, most of which with great prices compared to the competition.
If you’re looking for a travel app and are wondering why Triposo could be a good choice, the reason is the audio tour feature. Within the app, you can benefit from audio tours of major cities around the world, and you don’t even have to be connected to the internet. Well, you do, but only until you download the audio guide itself. After that, you can listen to the guide and follow the historical and tourist information that it feeds through the headset.
The app lets you browser through hotels, bars, restaurants and sights that you would like to visit, which is a very simple and mandatory feature of any tour guide, be it digital, paper or alive. However, Triposo also offers detailed maps of more than 30.000 locations, which you can save for offline access when going on a trip. At the same time, the app will feed you weather information and local time, as well as suggestions of places you should visit and the time it would take to get you there.
Overall, Triposo is a wonderfully designed travel app which we enjoyed testing. Since it’s free, it’s a very good choice for those who want to travel on a budget. Through the guide you can book actual tour guides and city walks, as well as occasional events that happen in a place that you will be visiting. It’s easy to use and the interface is very friendly. It is kind of similar to Google’s Material Design when it comes to its layout, which is a plus in our book. What travel app do you use when going cross-country?
