I think it’s perfectly safe to say that deep down, most of us have a desire to travel the world. While you might not be able to jump on a plane right this minute, Tripnary, created by Tripnary LLC, lets you collect destinations for your bucket list.
There are plenty of apps available that aim to help you keep track of things you want to do before you kick the proverbial bucket. Many people still use the old-school pen and paper method of keeping track of things. Tripnary goes above and beyond by giving users a way to not only discover places to visit, but find a way to actually get there.
Tripnary features a great introductory overview of the basics when you first open the app. You’ll have to create an account using your email address or Facebook, but it only takes a minute. Once you’re in, you can immediately begin browsing destinations around the world.
One of the really neat things about Tripnary is that it is essentially its own social network because other users can “favorite” locations, essentially giving a destination a thumbs up. You can take this into consideration when looking at a destination.
My favorite thing about Tripnary is the Browse page. Described as “Tinder for travel” by Mashable, this is where you can swipe through popular destinations as well as lesser-known locations and add them to your list. This is a fantastic way to discover places you otherwise would never have known about.
Tripnary is much more than a destination finder app, though. Once you’ve accumulated a few places to visit, check out the Flights tab. You’ll be able to see the lowest round trip airfare rates for every place on your list. You can even book a flight within the app if you’re ready to head out on an adventure.
Another great feature Tripnary offers is the ability to see details about locations, such as hours of operation, facts, and additional important information.
Lastly, the app offers a great search feature so you can find locations and add them to your list with ease. This is great if you’re planning on traveling to a city and you’d like to find other spots. You can also use the search feature to find hot spots near your current locations.
Overall, Tripnary is a must-have app for anyone who yearns to travel the globe without emptying their bank account. It’s an awesome way to discover new places, as well as compare airfare prices and purchase tickets. Not only is it easy to use, but it’s downright fun to explore and add destinations to your virtual bucket list.
Tripnary requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
