Gogobot, a social travel website has now come out with an app for the iPhone. The app allows iPhone users to create and share real-time digital postcards, find nearby restaurants, hotels and attractions, and access personalized trip plans. “Travel is all about discovering new experiences and sharing them with your friends and family,” said Travis Katz, Gogobot co-founder and CEO. “With the Gogobot App you can capture, personalize, and instantaneously share your favorite moments with richly-styled digital postcards, as well as explore what’s nearby and what your friends have recommended.”

The app allows users to select their current location, snap a photo and choose from more than ten different styles and filters to transform their photos (or photos from Gogobot’s extensive catalogue) into geo-tagged digital postcards. Users can rate the places they have been to on the fly, write reviews and share the postcards immediately with friends via Facebook or Twitter. Each postcard is added automatically to a user’s Gogobot Guide on Gogobot.com.
The Gogobot App also allows users to access the trip plans that they’ve created on their Gogobot.com profiles, including maps, reviews and more. Additionally, the ‘Nearby’ function lists restaurants, hotels and attractions automatically based on a user's location. Similar to Gogobot.com, the app sorts destinations based on your friends’ ratings.
The Gogobot app is available for free from the App Store.
