Re: Say more
@Ariella Great point about the content. I didn't think of paid placements, but you're right in saying they would be in the way of real local info.

Re: Say more
@maryam that could be very useful. I would just hope it is really informative -- listing what is there and not just the businesses that pay for their listings. I could see the info working off of something like Tripadvsior, which lists attractions and nearby options when you go on the site.

@maryam I should travel more. I didn't even realize AAA offered such a service in year's past. We're all looking for a brilliant app.

Tinym I have used bot but what I would really like is to put in my address at a travel location and get all the good restaurant's things to do and transportation options. Kind of like the itinerary AAA marketed years ago.

Re: Say more
@maryam Google and Trip Advisor already do that, but aren't exactly taylored to the local area. You could read reviews and get an idea of the best place for locals, but it would take time.

@maryam I think it'll be something Google or another large company might like to work on in the future. Travel site apps seem like they could use extra local info like this. This should be a neat progression to watch. Value-added data and services on the way!

Re: Say more
tinym I agree to many apps are an issue! I like one central app that you can navigate for where you want to go and what you want to do that is local to the city.

@Maryam I would like local content while travelling - I'm not sure about multiple apps. Though, locals wouldn't care if a neiboring town had its own app. Even without dedicated apps connecting city resources would be helpful for sure.

The options are limitless for making our lives easier even for suburbanites that go to cities more connected transportation, communications and notifications can make living in cities and going to cities much more enjoyable and efficient. Imagine an app for every city that provided access for transportation, tourists, residnets etc. It would be great!
