This is a cool new app that was just released for iOS devices. TripWhat was developed by Waterloo-based Sortable and aims to be a highly relevant travel guide that features up-to-date info on local activities, events, trips and restaurants.
The app seems to be an enhanced version of “Around Me” and acquires data from various pre-existing sites, namely SeatGeek, Google Maps, Facebook, Yelp, UrbanSpoon, Wikipedia, Last.fm and gives you real-time reviews and detailed information that will help you plan your next excursion. You can narrow down your search by simply typing in a word, such as thai food, and it’ll give you a breakdown in a map view based on your location. In addition to singling out a specific category, TripWhat gives you the option to create your own trip, like “best Toronto pubs,” that you can continually edit and share with your friends.
