Stay.com launches innovative Travel App for iOS and Android


Distinguished Member
Just in time for summer travel - it is summer apparently - Stay.com’s new collaborative travel app is designed to allows users to create a ‘city in their pocket’ by downloading their own guides and enjoying them offline. Each guide combines 'expert advice' provided by Stay.com’s international travel experts, partner sites, input from fellow travellers and friends and users’ own preferences.

With Stay.com, users can download guides and maps for 116 cities on their smartphones and add new places to their personal guide even without an Internet connection or the risk of incurring roaming charges. Any addition to the personal travel guide will be automatically synced once on Wi-Fi, incorporating input from multiple users – be they friends or fellow travellers.


“We are thrilled to offer users a better way to plan trips and travel on both web and mobile,” said Joachim Paasche, founder and CEO of Stay.com, which was named one of TIME Magazine’s Top 50 websites in 2010. “By providing travellers with a truly social experience, they can create a city guide that’s completely personal combining recommendations from experts and their friends.”

The downloadable, vector-based maps use less than 5MB so users get a smooth panning and zooming experience and don’t have to worry about long load times. The maps will always be available offline, and with GPS functionality, users can find their way around town and discover nearby attractions.

There's integration with Google Places which allows users to map millions of local venues around; content from TripAdvisor and TimeOut delivers up-to-date information on local restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues. Integration with Facebook allows travellers to personalize their guides by requesting suggestions from friends, inviting fellow travellers to collaborate on their guides and accessing all Facebook friend check-ins.

Stay.com is now available as a free download in the Apple App Store and Google Play, and also on the web at Plan Your Trip with Stay.com.
