Travelling? mTrip is the way to go! The smart travel app for iOS and Android

When I wrote about my visit to the Montreal International Startup Festival I promised to tell you about some of the new products I saw. It is summer vacation time, so why not start with a travel app. Developed in Montreal, mTrip is not your run of the mill travel guide.

There are dozens, maybe hundreds of travel apps that will tell you about attractions, show you maps and provide information on accomodations. mTrip does all these things plus it helps you plan an itinerary specific to your needs and interests. Once you have selected where you will be staying..naturally with the help of mTrip.. the mTrip Genius takes over.

This is where the magic happens..mTrip analyzes your preferences plans an itinerary puts it in a logical sequence based on location and even opening hours. If you decide to take a side trip or just rearrange your preferences mTrip will recalculate your itinerary based on the location provided by your phone’s location service. All of this is done offline so no frightening data roaming bills. That’s not all..watch for the augmented reality feature in this video..you will agree this is truly an awesome app. I did however, find navigating around mTrip’s features to be a bit unintuitive at times.

mTrip is currently available for 28 destinations at $5.99 per city. The app is available from the Android Market or the Apple App Store

    Not getting enough comments? Here’s a real question: please recommend what you think is the best tablet (not iPad, need Flash!)

    I have been trying to get the facebook comments to show up in the blog comments..so far no luck thus the test post. I would go for the Sansung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It will go on sale in Canada on August 19..you should be able to find it at Best Buy and Future Shop..I think Best Buy is taking pre-orders.

    These are some sweet apps, and good apps have become essential when travelling, so they’ll be perfect for my trip to Botswana this fall. My favorite app has to be TV Everywhere…as a DISH customer and employee I love being able to watch live TV off my home receiver or catch up on some of the stuff I have DVR’d. Right now new DISH Network customers can get a free Sling Adapter. More info online at http://bit.ly/l6HCIy

      Thank you for your comment. I wish Bell which uses Dish DVR’s would upgrade the service to include this capability. So far Remote PVR is the only app available and that only allows you to view the list of stuff on your PVR and schedule recordings.
