Distinction on the U.S. iOS Store Comes Only Six Months After Landing U.K. Featured App
NEW YORK, NY (June 24, 2019) – Culture Trip, the travel, media and entertainment start-up, has been awarded the honor of App of the Day in the U.S. by Apple IOS Store editors.
A mere six months after landing the distinction of IOS App of the Day U.K., Apple declared, “If you’re the type of traveler who wants to be at the forefront of cool in any neighbourhood or city in the world, don’t leave home without consulting Culture Trip.”
Culture Trip has been installed over 2 million times and has racked up nearly 6.500 ratings in the U.S. alone with an average review rating of 4.8 out of 5. The app allows people to explore and connect with the world around them, offering inspiration via stories from more than 300 local writers and creators. The result is hyper-local content on a global scale in an easy-to-use interface.
“The app is a whip-smart hybrid of magazine and travel site. Half of its content is quirky listicles and videos on viral topics of the day, while the other half is location-based travel articles and recommendations, curated by a team of local experts with their fingers trained on the pulse of their hometown. It feels dynamic: the app updates regularly so the same city can feel like a totally different place from one day to the next. You can filter recommendations via categories, including See & Do, Art, Lifestyle, Food & Drink and Places to Stay. Each piece lets you bookmark spots for your wishlist, share with friends or family, or view popular locations on a map. You can also download for offline viewing if you’re traveling abroad or just don’t want to use your cellular data on the go.” — Apple IOS Store
Outstanding user reviews cite Culture Trip’s recommendations on all of the coolest things to do at a location, but also the depth and expertise behind the inspirational videos and local recommendations for everything from restaurants, places to stay, markets, bars, books and films, to local streets to wander:
