social postcards from the edge of wherever you are October 31, 2011Posted by nicholas gill in app, social media, travel.
The world’s leading social travel site, Gogobot, has just released a new app that makes your travel more social. It does a lot of what the site offers already but using the geo-location abilities of a mobile device it lets you find nearby restaurants, hotels and attractions, recommendations from friends as well as access personalized trip plans.
But the really nice thing is sharing real-time postcards using the app to your friends on Facebook or Twitter. It’s a smart way to tap into the discovery of new experiences through travel and the desire to share those experiences instantly. The app also acts as a digital holiday notebook where users can rate and write reviews of all the places they have been to, creating a lasting memory all of the places they’ve visited.
