Jetpac launches city guides for iOS
Bang for buck: It’s free!
Ease of use:
Utilizing more than 100 million public Instagram photos, encompassing more than 5,000 cities, Jetpac City Guides categorizes trips based on pictures rather than reviews and check-ins. Just pick a city and the recommendations lists in form of themes such as “Bars women love”, or “restaurants with best views” that give a whole different perspective in the way users travel.
You can favorite trips or share with friends. Get maps of that trip in the app and see pictures associated with it. Every time someone takes an Instagram photo of that place or moment while adding a location and sharing it publicly, Jetpac integrates the photo with the app, creating a mosaic of the hottest spots in the city.
We experimented with some trips and didn’t find the details of the trip on the map too appealing. Either the maps won’t load or the trips wont show up on them. Nonetheless, this is a great app for non-traditional trips.
