[prMac.com] Waterloo, Canada - TripWhat 1.2 helps users explore or plan a trip in their favorite city. The app takes the guesswork out of researching destinations by curating data from Urbanspoon, Yelp, Seatgeek, Last.fm, WikiVoyage, Google Maps and other sources. This data is combined into one app offering users a comprehensive guide to events, restaurants, and attractions in 250 cities across the United States and Canada.
"With the launch of TripWhat we wanted to help travelers discover hidden treasure on their next adventure, quickly and easily," said Brenden Sherratt, TripWhat's Marketing and Community Ambassador. "When you are on vacation you don't want to waste your time combing through ten different websites or guidebooks. TripWhat aggregates information from popular websites and shrinks it down to fit into the palm of your hand."
TripWhat provides up-to-date information, combining multiple data sources to not only allow the user to find the nearest music venue, but also provide biographical data for the band playing that night. Users can also create personalized itineraries and explore guides that are created by other users, like top sights to see in New York. TripWhat has curated over 600,000 different attractions, and over 100,000 events in 250 cities across the US and Canada, so users will never be without the perfect activity on their next trip.
