fishbat, a leading Long Island SEO company, responds to an article published by Mashable on November20th that discusses the new app, Citymaps, and what it means for travelers.
According to the article published by Mashable titled, “Citymaps Is All You Need to Plan an Urban Adventure,” Citymaps was designed so that “directional functionality can work in tandem with local discovery.” Unlike other digital maps, Citymaps promotes flexibility for the adventurous user that doesn’t necessarily “have a point B in mind.”
The article explains that with Citymaps, a social aspect comes into play in determining the user’s endpoint. This is due to the app’s ability to offer local destinations that are “sourced from brands, celebrities and friends you trust.” Thanks to Citymaps, you can start the day brunching at your favorite celebrity’s eatery and end the night with drinks at your older sister’s best friend’s favorite dive bar. The next day, if you want to recommend that same bar’s amazing amaretto sours, you can add commentary to the destination in your own personalized map, which other users can see and take into consideration when making their own plans for the evening.
Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, a leading Long Island SEO company, says that this app’s ingenuity comes from its ability to combine the sensibility of travel with the spontaneity of adventure. “The beauty of Citymaps is that it recognizes its audience, and it’s both pragmatic and spontaneous,” says Maas. “For those Type A planners seeking a finalized itinerary, the app provides a list of concrete endpoints, which users can gage based upon commentary from others unaffiliated with the company they are ‘appraising.’ For those seeking a more adventurous approach, the article says that the app can act as a guide by connecting a bunch of destinations together for a day of fun. Either way, the app is a social media goldmine in that it blurs together the worlds of social media and travel in an extremely unique way. It will be exciting to see how this combination will work together in the future.”
