Travelling has now become a fully-fledged leisure activity. Discovering new sceneries, gaining insights on a specific place, breaking the routine, meeting interesting people, etc., all of these are legitimate reasons for individuals to go and seek adventure around the world. By teaming up with Wiredelta, Mapery made concrete a brilliant idea for all travelers: a mobile app which helps you discover places and share exciting experiences.
Whenever you are in an unfamiliar country or city, you need to plan:
- Where to go
- What to do
- And, of course, where to eat.
However, wherever you happen to be, there is generally a plethora of hotels, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc. to choose from. Rather overwhelming. With technical and maintenance support provided by Wiredelta, Mapery has succeeded in overcoming this obstacle.
Mapery is a mobile app relying on an integrated map. The app displays with an appealing and refined design all the relevant information regarding a specific place:
- Night clubs
- Cultural and historical places of interest
- Shopping malls
- …And much more!
Not to mention that users can filter various kinds of locations in order to find more easily what they are looking for.
So how does it work?
- You first have to sign up on the app by using Facebook login.
- And…that’s it! You are now ready to create a list of pins either for personal use or for recommendations intended for your friends.
Indeed, the app allows you to share your exciting experiences as well as the places you have just discovered by including descriptions and ratings. Another cool feature of Mapery allows you to take pictures and videos that will then be stored in the app’s database, ready to be uploaded on the profile of a specific place you visited. All of that in a few clicks!
The app can also be used as a navigation map, guiding you to get to the desired location.
On the menu, the history function will display a list of all the shared interactions in regards to the pins that you and your friends have shared. You can decide to accept or decline locations shared by a specific friend in order to personalize your map.
And it gets even better. As you are going to hit the next destination on your bucket list, you can also get recommendations directly from official maps, guides or even from bloggers that partnered with Mapery.
When building Mapery’s iOS app the most suitable technologies was to build a native iOS app in Swift for users to share places with their friends on an integrated Apple Maps. Shops can see traffic and traction for their store in a dashboard that has been built in NodeJS from the ground up.
With Mapery, you can more than ever travel in the most pleasantly vagabond way. Deciding what to do, where to eat and so on as you go, thanks to your friends’ recommendations. Discovering and experiencing what the world has to offer has never been so easy.
