The Vienna-bases company provides crowd-sourced information thanks to the 18000 members and adds on top of it content from guides such as Marco Polo and Footprint, for more than 400.000 destinations.
That’s a lot of stuff, but how do you access it when you’re away on a trip? That’s what they have been asking themselves lately, and answered with an awesome iPhone application. City guides, restaurants and hotel reviews, everything at your fingertips.
The usage is not limited to tripwolf members, but it is highly recommended to have an account as you can synchronize it with the application.
Alexander Trieb, the tripwolf co-founder responsible for the implementation of the iPhone application, says: “By offering the tripwolf iPhone application we are taking the logical next step in the evolution of travel guides: Beyond the book.”
One of the most important features I spotted is the offline mode. Tripwolf lets you choose what you would like to download and save you from those huge roaming costs. Users have the choice of downloading either text only or the whole package that includes pictures. You will then be able to synchronize everything back at the hotel.
“The possibility of using the tripwolf iPhone application offline was extremely important to us. We wanted travelers not to worry about paying high roaming costs”, Sebastian Heinzel, CEO of tripwolf explains, “while still being able to access their personalized tripwolf guides and benefit from location based interactivity.
This is a great news for every traveller out there. The application is currently available in five languages – English, German, Spanish, French and Italian – in any part of the world.
