Gogobot, the useful social-networking travel website, has just released Gogobot, a useful social-networking iPhone app. It’s less confusing than it sounds. Trust me.
The website allows users to chronicle their travels throughout the world and post questions for recommendations on where to eat, stay, etc… Other users can then make their own recommendations, which are automatically linked to database entries with images, addresses and contact information. The app allows users to access their trip plans, check for recommendations, write up their own reviews for a location on-the-spot and even create their own digital postcards to commemorate their travels. The only feature that really seems absent is the ability to post recommendations for other users, but on-the-spot reviews will be saved to their account to be used later if need be.
Given the sheer amount of useful applications, the whole “make a postcard” thing seems almost quaint by comparison. That’s not to say it’s not a neat idea, though. I can imagine it would save a lot on postage. Additionally, their look can be customized somewhat, and who doesn’t enjoy creating nifty looking photo-things to send to friends and family?
Anyone who travels or plans to do any traveling should take a look at Gogobot. It’s totally free, and it’s in the App Store right now.
