Our mission is to build a travel guide that you can use anywhere on the planet. Since people travel to many locations that are outside the major cities and towns, we’ve focused on making this version of our app the ultimate source of information about the many fun, authentic small towns, rural areas and off-the-beaten-path sites that exist all across the globe.
Here are some key new features:
- New Towns: 22,000 from around the world have been added, with practical information like where to find a pharmacy and how to use public transportation.
- New Points of Interest: 400,000 of them, including museums, natural landmarks and historical sites.
- More Attractions: 50,000 to be exact, many in some of the most remote parts of the world. Includes: hidden waterfalls, castles perched high on a hilltop and restaurants tucked away in the countryside.
- Fresh Digs: Complete overhaul of the interface so you can more quickly find basic information or dig deeper into the details you find most interesting.
- New Discovery Features: Reorganized to help people organically discover all the great attractions nearby by browsing through a town guide, exploring our skobbler-powered maps or checking out personalized suggestions for each area.
with background information, highlights and detailed open-source maps.
In addition to new content about small towns and regions, we’ve also added some really cool new features for big cities:
- Search by Time Period: Browse a city’s points of interest based on the time period in which they were built or the architect who designed, a great way to get a historical perspective.
- Get Up Close & Personal: Zoom into a specific area in town and learn all about it, so you can get to know particular neighborhoods really well as they explore a new city.

Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, the poet's birthplace, with the house where (it is believed) he lived as a child, and another house where his wife lived as a child. Inside Holy Trinity Church there's the Shakespeare's funerary monument. Royal Shakespeare Theatre is well worth attention too.
New York, USA, with Shakespeare-in-the-Park performances and Shakespeare Garden (in the Brookyn Botanic Garden) makes it to the third place. As a little additional score booster there's the Puck Building, named after (and decorated with statues of) a character from A Midsummer's Night Dream.
Verona, Italy. Similar story. The Basilica of San Zeno, the crypt of which is said to be the place of the marriage of Romeo and Juliet; Juliet's balcony; etc. A real fan would remember that there is also a Shakespeare comedy called The Two Gentlemen of Verona, about some guys who were, well, from Verona.
York, UK. Yes, the old York has made it to the list too, not only the New one. It is the ideal place to go for a couple in which one likes Shakespeare and another dislikes him. In Siward's Howe earl Siward, a character in Macbeth, is said to be buried. In one of the old city gates a small museum hides, dedicated to just how wrong Shakespeare was about Richard III.
The Triposo guide to Mars is available as a download guide within the iOS Triposo App. The Triposo guide covers different sections, including practical information. The exploring nature has most articles - there are huge mountains, deep valleys and giant plains. We've listed some of the remains of earlier mission to Mars under sightseeing, but as we have no exact coordinates it may be quite hard to find these places.
There's very little user generated content, which makes it hard to have a guide that's as good as the guides to planet earth' most popular destinations.
One more day and it's Saint Patrick's Day, the day when the whole world is a little green. But how green exactly? We have a heat map of the world that shows how Irish different cities around the world are. To get our map we've compared the number of bars that are Irish with the total number of bars in town that we have in our database. Then we applied some smoothing so that a small town with just one bar that is very Irish doesn't show up with a 100% score and outshines Boston where 25% of the bars may be seen as Irish.
