Are you a spontaneous traveler? Do you love planning for your destination, but not every minute of the day? Triposo is a new app for iPhone or androids and may be worth adding to your “must have” apps.
Triposo provides users with up-to-date information, maps and recommendations for “more than 15,000 destinations in 200 countries around the world,” according to their website. Triposo takes into consideration your preferences, interests, current location, weather, and the time of day in order to provide you with suggestions about everything from restaurants to theater. And it learns as you search. If you consistently look up places to get great coffee in your various destinations, the app will start making those recommendations automatically for you. It’s like having a personal travel guide with you at all times.
Richard Osinga, Triposo Founder and COO, tells “MoneyBeat” at WSJLive that the app allows for travelers to be more spontaneous. Users discover the hidden gems in their new destinations—even if those destinations are not particularly known for being tourist zones. Having access to personalized recommendations about museums, shopping, beaches and bars based on your current location may just change the way you explore.
