De­sign your get­away with crowd­sourced rec­om­men­da­tions

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION -

Even sea­soned trav­el­ers like to get rec­om­men­da­tions from oth­ers who’ve gone down paths they haven’t seen. Trav­elEnvy re­lies on that crav­ing for good ad­vice and lets users browse other peo­ple’s travel plans to get rec­om­men­da­tions about what’s worked for them in lo­cales across the world.

So you’re in luck if you’re look­ing for preap­proved din­ner spots, ho­tel rec­om­men­da­tions or de­tours that are worth tak­ing.

The app pro­vides sug­ges­tions from its own team and trusted cu­ra­tors. But the real se­cret sauce comes to­gether when you in­vite friends — prefer­ably friends whose opin­ions you trust — to create plans of their own.

Users will need to make an ac­count to use this app, add friends and save plans. You can also create your own plans for shar­ing, of course, to share your top rec­om­men­da­tions for the best places to eat, see, stay or shop as well as the best peo­ple to hire for ser­vices. That way you can share your wis­dom as well as ben­e­fit from the wis­dom of oth­ers.

Free, for iOS and An­droid de­vices.
