Location-Based Smartphone App Makes Travel More Social
The app is a location-based service that travelers can use to share and receive tips, arrange meet-ups and coordinate transportation. For example, through their airport check-in, users can see who's on their flight, send messages and plan trip details like taxis and tours. There is also a fun feature that tracks users' travel stats, like miles traveled, most frequented routes and preferred airlines. And to help service providers, Zamp allows for immediate user feedback to be given.
While this may not sound new, Zamp places an emphasis on making travel more social.
At this time, the company is working on building strategic partnerships to create more features and enhance the user experience. For example, they have teamed up with the Frequent Flyer Network to create a branded travel "lounge," where users can communicate in real time from anywhere in the world. They're also working with TripIt to enhance the flight check-in service.
