NEW YORK, October 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
TripTogether.com, the increasingly popular travel portal that connects members across the globe with like-minded travel companions, today announced the launch of its first mobile application which is available free at iTunes. The comprehensive app is a key component of TripTogether's enduring commitment to provide its international members with more direct options to find a travel partner to complement their journeys.
The fresh TripTogether app comes with all the bells and whistles of the state-of-the-art website to help members longing to find that special travel buddy. A virtual extension of TripTogether's website, members can use the app to connect with interesting and intriguing fellow travelers and travel enthusiasts from over 200 countries while on the go from the convenience of their mobile device. Based on a purchased credits model, which can be transacted in the new app, users can quickly and securely create an account or log in. Members can then take photos and post them, search with a broad range of precision criteria for fellow travelers, create and maintain a personal contacts list of members and potential companions, and even chat with other users in real time.
Perhaps the most interesting and timely feature that places this app at the forefront of social enablement, and quenches one's thirst for immediate travel connections, is the high tech Who's Online section. This slick feature displays virtually all members who are logged in at that moment, and lets the user interact with them on the spot. See someone you like who's online at TripTogether? Simply signal them, connect immediately, and chat them up about their safari to Kenya or invite them on your next trip to New York.
"As one of the world's most unique travel sites, we wanted to meet the market's demand for communication on multiple levels," says Anthony Volpe, Public Relations Officer at TripTogether. "Busy lifestyles require innovative ways to source information and connect with people. We believe this new application gives our users what they want by raising our utility and value to the top strata of social engagement..." says Anthony Volpe.
The app is available now as a free download on iTunes.
