Tripomatic iPhone travel app for tourists

Making your family vacation plans

The Tripomatic is a travel app for the iPhone. A company based in Brno in the Czech Republic has developed it. The husband-wife team of Barbora and Lukas Nevosad are the founders of this enterprise. They are both e-commerce students from Sweden. The Next Web rated it as the best travel app of 2012.



The Tripomatic is aimed at bringing interesting places to the attention of tourists through
 travel maps. It can be used to plan the trip and print the maps of the places that they wished
 to see. It presently is optimised for the iPhone 5. It works with iPhones 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, touch 
version 3 onwards and iPad. You may share the data and trip plans over the Internet 

using the Facebook or through emails.

Using the app 

You start by typing the name of a city and you will be 
presented with a list of things and places of interest in the 
city. It is a free app, which was conceptualised early in 
2011 and has been around since 2012.

This app shows 320 + places of interest, 25,000 + 
attractions, opening closing hours, admission fees and details
 that is of interest to the tourist. The latest version has plenty 
of offline maps and data, which was a complaint with the 
people who could not do so before. Using the phone to read
 a map at roaming charges is sure to run up the 
phone bill. Another improvement that met with a lot of smiles
 was the ability to delete a trip from the app itself.



Imaginary travel or future plans 

The thrill of the app is evident in the way one 
may 'visit' sites all over the world and discover 
things of interest. One can save the 'trip' and
 make plans with your friends before you 
finally embark on it. The main website 
Tripomatic.com syncs with the app on your 
phone and lets you add details.

When you are planning your family vacation, 
you should consider different things and different 
places. One could have a boating vacation, 
visit backwaters of Kerala, visit a 
coffee estate  or have a holiday at a hill station. 
One could go on a skiing vacation or visit 
exotic places like Thailand or Niagara Falls.

Check on holiday packages from tour operators. You could have a European vacation, or holiday in 
USA. You could visit exotic places in Thailand or see some historic landmarks in India. 

Tripomatic is rated 4+ in the App store. It is highly recommended to download this app since it is 100% 
free, you do not like it, and you do not have to worry too much.
