[prMac.com] Dubai, UAE - Urban Travel Guides, a social-mobile technology company that specializes in pointing Travelers and vacationers in the right direction, announced today the release of a new set of mobile applications that claims to be the "smartest travel companion ever." The applications, which are available from Apple's App Store for $2.99 per city, helps travelers plan their trips and find locations that appeal to their interests.
After downloading Urban Travel Guides' apps to their iPhones, users can find activities and locations in New York City, London, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome and Dubai. Each travel guide is filled with curated content that seasoned travelers from around the world have written to help newcomers find their way to the best vacation spots. Many of these people are from Travelers' Nation, an online community that prides itself on inspiration through tourism. For instance, with the program's inspiration tool, customers can find places that cater to their budget and trip interests.
"Our travel guide apps will help people build a meaningful itinerary for their trips, and it will suggest places that they ought to visit based on what they've entered into the application," said Halim Boumadani, founder of UrbanTG. "The inspiration tool itself is a unique feature that's based on algorithms; when customers search for places that they want to visit, only the most relevant and the highest-rated will appear at the top of the results."
"Ultimately, our objective was to offer a variety of choices, based on budget and interest, to the customer."
In creating the travel guides, Boumadani also sought to help travelers keep their itineraries organized. The "My Trip" function allows customers to check where they have been and to add and drop places from their sightseeing list.
"Once customers have decided what they want to do, the app will keep their plans ordered and tidy, unlike other apps that provide just the content and not the planning that it takes to get from one place to the next," said Boumadani.
As UrbanTG team is growing, the company promises to add guides for at least 40 more cities by the end of the year. To learn more about Urban Travel Guides, please visit UrbanTG online.
