TripleSpot, a new storytelling mobile app for travelers, launched on the Apple App Store today. The free app features user-generated content that encourages people to pursue their passion points by discovering cool activities, planning upcoming trips, and in turn, helping others follow in their path.
More and more, people are turning to mobile devices as a sort of guidebook - whether attempting to discover a new local treasure or planning an epic adventure in a different place. With the new TripleSpot app, users, or TripleSpotters, tell their stories through three elements: a physical location, an image and a description of the experience.
"We were inspired to create TripleSpot to create a tool that would enhance the experience of getting out and doing new and interesting things. The app takes users beyond just reviewing businesses or sitting back to look at photos," said David Hu, Marketing Manager for TripleSpot. "With TripleSpot, users can capture stories in the moment that can then be saved, returned to and shared with friends."
TripleSpot's members can create "Spots" or "Lists" that are organized into twelve different categories, such as "Get Outside," "Do Good" and "Hear Music" making it easy for others to find great activities based on interests.
There are three primary actions that TripleSpotters can use:
* Capture Spots by uploading a photo, tagging it to a specific location, and sharing a personal story
* Create Lists by grouping Spots based on themes, locations, dates of travel, or categories that can be shared and saved
* Search for Spots nearby, in a specific location, or within categories of interest
As new TripleSpotters participate, the app will continue to evolve based on the community's activity and preferences. As the community grows and more spots are created, the app will become more customized to each user's personality and interests.
TripleSpot is available for free on the Apple App Store. The Android version will be available in Fall 2013.
TripleSpot 1.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Travel category.
