wordoftravel - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, however, not in app development.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Learning the framework (Flutter by Google) took a significant amount of effort, however, it is a great framework once up and running.

After working in Finance and IT in London for 10 years, wordoftravel founder Dale traveled for 18 months through Asia and Latin America where the idea for wordoftravel was born. Post travels, Dale settled in Melbourne in his home country Australia where he runs Word of Travel Pty Ltd

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

TripIT (for sharing trip plans with friends and family) and Trabee (for keeping track of your budget)

How long have you been working on this app?

One year.

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

How to quickly research for your travel, keep all of your research in one place and share it with friends. Many travellers now avoid using a traditional guide book and want more personalised advice and tips than from the major travel boards.

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.

Travel is a personal experience - our app enables you to search for tips from travellers and travel bloggers who travel the way you travel. Our innovative AI system automatically determines the location of travel posts to enable the user to search for tips and posts for their next destination. We already have over 13,500 travel stories searchable (and growing quickly!)

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

Improved collaboration with your travel buddies to share and plan trips together and significantly more coverage (we target growing our travel tip coverage by 25% per quarter).

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.)?

Share the app with your travel buddies!
