We're closed

Today we announce that we've closed a seed round.
It's great of course to have some money in the bank with which we can build the things we've dreamed up, but we're particularly happy with the people we'll be working with. We have a great bench of angels with a few xooglers, but also people with great links to Twitter and Facebook and some guys from completely different backgrounds who bring new insights and a down to earth approach to the table. We're excited and proud! Among the names that may ring a bell are Chris Sacca, Taher Haveliwalla and InterWest Partners.

A rip and a skip and a roar!

Triposo is a distributed company - we're four guys and so far we have never been in the same continent at the same time since we started. But soon this will change. Next Monday our first Jamboree will start. Being a distributed company is great but every distributed company needs to get together with the team every now and then. Although we have never been boyscouts, we've come to call these gatherings or meetups Jamborees.

Our first Jamboree is in Amsterdam and it's starting next Monday. With a little help from our friends at AirBNB we've managed to all find a place to crash at night for the coming weeks. We'll be working hard to release new versions of our guides with new great features - and to dream up more wonderful things that we'll be working on after the Jamboree.

Needless to say, we're all very excited. In the words of poet Robert Service:
They are all a-glee for the jamboree, and they make the Landing ring
With a whoop and a whirl, and a “Grab your girl”, and a rip and a skip and a roar.

The world is your oyster

We have over 50 apps and we like to think that they're all pretty good. But when you travel you don't want to have an app for every city you'll be visiting on your phone. So that's why we started making country guides, but we realize that we can till do better: one app to rule them all. The world app.

Today we uploaded our first attempt of making a world guide to the Android Market. It's not perfect yet, but you can give it a spin and let us know what you think.

Strictly speaking it's not a world app yet. We haven't made guides for every country yet, but in it you will find some 30 different destinations and once we add new ones they will appear in the list automatically.
