Action-packed social travel app from TripTogether.com – already a big hit with travelers on iPhone and other Apple devices – is now available on the popular Android platform. The free Android app will further boost accessibility for TripTogether’s 300,000 strong members, enabling even more global trip companions to find each other while on the move. Those who download the new Android app can access all features found on both the website and iPhone app versions of this successful travel partner locator.
TripTogether’s engaging new app enables users with Android devices to discover the world and chat with fellow travelers via their smartphone or tablet. It is an essential resource for adventurous members wishing to continue their cultural conversations and vacation planning during times when they are unable to access the desktop site. This added convenience and connectivity is especially important as TripTogether serves a truly global audience who interact across the time zones from over 190 countries.
“At TripTogether we know smartphones and tablets are indispensable travel tools, not only for organizing vacations overseas but also when discussing trips and meeting new travel partners,” says Anthony Volpe, TripTogether’s Chief Marketing Officer, “The new app expands the options of TripTogether’s Android users and builds on our ambition to connect all travelers no matter where they are or what platform they’re using.”
Potential trip companions can use the new Android app to locate a travel buddy, talk to helpful locals and make arrangements before a shared vacation. Members who join or login via the app will enjoy features including traveler search, photo posting, and travel match browsing. Once compatible travel partners have discovered each other, they can chat instantly online or send offline messages when their contact is unavailable. The app also includes TripTogether’s popular Travel Planner – which displays genuine vacation dates – and the new Traveler Rating System that allows members to recommend each other.
TripTogether believe that this Android app will encourage even more shared global adventures and bring new travel friends together irrespective of the platform they use to connect.
