Recommendation Engines, Inc has just released Tripstr, a new app that makes it easy for close-to-home adventurers and globetrotters alike to create and publish beautiful photo stories right from their iPhones or iPads, all in a matter of minutes. Tripstr’s fun interface helps users quickly identify the best photos from their trips, turning them into shareable stories that anyone can view on the on the web.
“People told us, ‘my vacation photos are just sitting on my phone. I was going to do something with them, but it’s too much work,’” explains Tripstr co-founder and CEO Austin Cooley. “We designed Tripstr to overcome common barriers to sharing rich travel stories.”
The Tripstr story creation process automatically pulls in all relevant photos from users’ phones and works offline, which allows people to focus on their adventures rather than on the app. “We didn’t want to distract people by requiring them to log in constantly during their travels,” says Cooley. “Creating a story with Tripstr is the perfect activity for reliving trips during the return flight or once you've settled back in at home.” The results? Interactive and visually compelling stories that people will be proud to share.
Armchair travelers and those planning future trips will appreciate Tripstr as a source of travel inspiration as they browse their friends’ stories. “We also work with travel company partners to help provide ‘social as a service’ for their business,” says Cooley.
Tripstr’s multi-talented team of designers, coders, and advisors (including Andrew McCollum, of Facebook’s founding team) has spent the past year building this uniquely fun and gorgeous travel storytelling app, which is now available for free on the App Store for iPhones and iPads running iOS 7 or later.
