Gogobot makes easier discovering interesting places in your destinations

Paper travel guides? That's over. When travelling around, it's better playing it safe. There's no more accurate way to discover best places to visit/eat/sleep than an interactive travel guide like Gogobot, that can be checked anytime from your smartphone.

Gogobot only asks you to type the city you are or you're planning to go. Automatically it will display places in different categories: hotels, things to do, restaurants, children's activities, outdoors, shopping, sights and museums and many more place of interest. You can see prices for the services, users' reviews, address, contact info and nearby places.

Obviously, you can rate the place and review it (you need to sign up by e-mail, Facebook connect or G+) as well as check-in the place and share it through your social accounts. Finally, Gogobot is fully integrated with Google Maps. Thus, you can locate in the map all those worth-to-visit places. Finally, one of the most interesting features it comes with is "Featured" section, where you can find well-rated places all over the world.

Gogobot's keystone is simplicity endowed by a minimalist interface and a basic set of features, only the ones an amateur traveler would need. Recommended.
