TourScanner – Compare Tours & Travel Activities - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, of course. I have been coding for the last 5 years in different areas of web development.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Coding in the iOS environment is more challenging because there are sets of rules defined by Apple which are different than most standard guidelines in the web environment.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Remaining in the travel sector, I think that Skyscanner and Airbnb have very good apps.

How long have you been working on this app?

The Android app took a couple of weeks, while the development of the iOS app took a couple of months.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Helping users in finding the perfect tour at the best price in the shortest amount of time.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

TourScanner is the only app on the market aggregating and comparing the tours and activities offered by multiple platforms. On TourScanner, travelers can find the largest selection of tours at the best price. I don’t know any other sites that offer a specific categorization of activities, while aggregating most of the supply bookable online, letting the users the possibility to compare and book on the best website.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

In the future, we will integrate a wishlist where users can save their favorite tours and a map, which can help to display where the main attractions and museums are located in a city.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Try the app when you are planning your next trip and let us know what you think. Feel free to share it with your travel friends!
