The Go-to App for Travellers

Touted as the definitive go-to app for travelers, Gogobot offers an extensive database of interesting destination places across North America and some major cities in Europe. It provides a list of travel recommendations based on your personal preferences.

What’s unique about Gogobot is that it combines elements of social networking with your travel plans. This means you can follow your friends who are already using the app. You may also invite them so you can build a network within the Gogobot community. Most important of all, the app allows you to follow travel experts who provide reviews and recommendations for fellow travelers.

When you launch Gogobot, you will see the app’s three main sections on its home screen namely Stay, Eat, and Play. Tap any section to open the interactive cards that contain places of interests, photos, reviews, ratings, and tags.

The app uses GPS in order to provide you with highly localized result. So if you’re in New York, Gogobot will recommend hotels, restaurants, and activities located in the city. However, the app also allows you to search travel places that are outside of your current location. This is a great feature that can make your travel planning much easier.

But the best thing about this app is the highly social character of its travel planning tools. You can use this app to ask recommendations from friends and other seasoned travelers. You can also share itineraries with friends or invite them to your travel plans.
