You might wonder how exactly TripScout (free for iOS) plans to be the “first travel app you use every day.” But then you might take a look inside it…
TripScout compiles destination-focused content from more than 1,000 top publishers and influencers around the world and locates the places and items they mention on a clean and intuitive map. You can save items and build your own itinerary, or you can let the app curate inspiration for you. Sign up for daily notifications and each day you’ll receive a personalized collection of articles, trip countdowns, new trip recommendations, weather summaries, and a new destination of the day.
Say you plan to visit New York City. With TripScout, you can scour content from across the internet (from the likes of Travel + Leisure, USA TODAY, Forbes, and more) related to NYC or even the neighborhood(s) you want to spend your time in. You can read about and look at photos of points of interest (there are more than 100 million within the app) as curated by your favorite experts and build a map of things to see and do with a few clicks.
The company just raised $2.1 million to power its growth as a go-to travel tool, so chances are you’ll be seeing it around more.
