Introducing TripHelp: Facebook Application TripHelp Transforms Travel Planning from Burden to Fun

Official Press Release:

Bucharest, RO – September 27, 2010 – When using Facebook and think of traveling to a new and exciting location, be sure to use TripHelp, a new application that makes travel planning  easier and a lot more fun through a Q&A system. TripHelp is a new service developed by TrippyDoo.com, a young social network for travelers launched in 2010.

After two month of product development, the company has now launched the beta version of the application. By using TripHelp on Facebook people can now receive the best recommendations on a specific place (for example Paris, or Rome), from the real travelers who visited these places. All the web noise and lack of credibility are gone. Either good or bad, people can rest assure that the hotel or restaurant recommendation they receive is real, from people that experimented that specific place.

Additionally, TripHelp brings fun to travel planning. Through a system of points and badges people can learn more about their travel experiences and match those experiences versus their friends. „The idea was to exploit your past travel experiences in a fun way, giving people stats and funny badges to encouraged them to share tips, photos, recommendations. These data, together with the Q&A system will bring people the reliable information they need whenever going to a place they don’t know much about” declares Daniela Lepus, company founder.

Travel utility combined with Facebook-fun is a unique combination of elements that makes TripHelp a definitely must-try for all the travelers using Facebook. Furthermore, all information and travel insights can be accessed on TrippyDoo.com, for everyone out there.

For friends now: hope you all enjoy TripHelp, and I am looking forward to your feedback. Together, we can make  TripHelp a better place!  And then, we can rule the world!

Ok, now seriously, we’re in an alpha-beta stage, we chose to stealth launch the app, study players behavior and get to work again. The first results – 140 users since submission in Facebook directory 2 days ago. I’ll periodically publish statistics about usage and other combined data analysis that don’t let me sleep at night. Would be nice to debate with someone from time to time.

That’s it for now. Over & out!

P.S. Andi Chirita is responsible for app dev, and I hear he is ready to receive congratulations ‘n all :)
