Viator – iOS app review
The Viator app allows users to search for activities wherever they are and book them through the phone, while the iPad version seems to be aimed more at the armchair user. The mobile app will detect current location, and users can also specify an alternative destination, and then they can look at what’s on today, top attractions in the area, as well as special offers.
Things to do are listed with prices and average user reviews. Activities on offer can also be viewed on a map, so that people can find something to so within their immediate area. The listings provide some detailed information on the various activities on offer through the app, with photos, detailed descriptions, and a good range of reviews from other users.
The fact that activities can be booked through the app makes it more useful, both for the tourist looking for something to do at short notice, and for the venue or tour operator looking to sell any remaining tickets.
