Traditionally, a travel guide just waits until you start looking up what to do. This one is different. Open the new Triposo app and it will actively suggest you where to go now. And they are clever suggestions. We look at your location, the time of day, the weather and opening hours to present you with some great options. So, yes, you can expect us to come up with a good coffee place nearby when you need a shot of caffeine.
We started experimenting with suggestions in December last year.
What's really exciting, is that the app also registers the direction you are looking in, so when you are going in the direction of an interesting place it will highlight that place. It may sound like one of those complicated Augmented Reality apps, but this one is easy to use, and doesn't require you to look through your phone.
We think that's the real magic: the new app manages to do clever things without making the app difficult to understand or hard to use - and without losing or hiding the great functionality that has made the app popular.
Here is a movie that shows how the new features work.
The movie also highlights some other new features, like the travel dashboard. Essential things like weather forecast, currency converter and useful phrasebook are just one tap away.
So there's a lot of new stuff in there and yes, we're pretty darn proud of it. So give it a spin and tell us how we can make it even better! We love to hear your feedback.
