SINGAPORE, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GuideAdvisor.com, in partnership with Ball State University, today announced the launch of an integrated version of "The Traveler" - a free android trip journal and digital sketchbook app that now seamlessly connects users with local listed guides based on geocoded locations. Starting today - there is simply no easier way for travelers to view tour and trip offerings, check reviews, and make direct contact with independent guides - whether in the traveler's immediate area or across the globe.
The Traveler app also provides complete integration of captured photos, videos, audio files, location markers, and GPS tracking into a package that allows users to organize it all in a super-efficient and travelfriendly interface - and share it on their social networks and with other travelers with ease.
GuideAdvisor was recently featured on GoNOMAD and in October reached another significant milestone with 8500+ published guides offering trips and tours in 125 countries... and they're growing by leaps and bounds. What really sets the site and this app apart is the ability for travelers to connect directly with guides and custom-tailor trips and tours to fit their specific needs.
"Integrating with The Traveler app and reaching 8500 published guides on the website are both really positive achievements for us," said Susan McCarthy, CEO, "We are gratified by the continued high adoption rate of our site by the world guiding community and we are really excited about what the integration of our guide offerings within this app now offers travelers."
GuideAdvisor launched in October 2013 and began inviting interesting guides from all over the world to join up to become part of this new community. Guides quickly started signing up and creating their profiles and tours – because with an initial free trial period and no commission – there is nothing to lose and a whole online world of travelers to gain.
About GuideAdvisor: GuideAdvisor offers detailed profiles, traveler reviews and in depth interviews to connect travelers to guides in 125 countries and 2400+ destinations.
GuideAdvisor is committed to providing the simplest way for travelers to virtually meet guides before choosing who to book their next trip with. GuideAdvisor believes that the right guide can turn an interesting tour into the experience of a lifetime.
About "The Traveler": Developed at Ball State University in Muncie, IN, The Traveler began as a tool for students in the college of architecture and planning (CAP) to document, capture and record their experiences on field study trips. After the first trip in 2012 to Chicago with the CAP First Year Studio students, The Traveler was released to the public on the Google Play Store. With over 116,000 downloads and users from around the world, The Traveler has received multiple awards and has been featured in the Play Store as well as on several renowned technology and travel blogs including Lonely Planet.com. The team looks forward to continued growth with the GuideAdvisor partnership.
