Introducing Zeblist, an App for Curated Travel Recommendations

Connecting Personal Networks for Trusted Opinions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 30, 2015) - Zeblist, a social discovery app for travel and entertainment, has announced the launch of its app today. The founders of Zeblist believe the best recommendations for travel and entertainment are from the people whose tastes and opinions are valued the most -- friends and family. The app makes it easy to share and discover favorite places in any city across the globe by allowing users to instantly access curated lists from the people they trust.

"How many times have you emailed your friends or posted a comment on social media before a trip asking for recommendations, or been asked for yours?" noted Co-Founder Brodsky. "As passionate travellers and foodies, we recognized that there's currently no great way to share the places that you love or find out what your friends love without having to ask for it, or spend hours sifting through likes, tags, blogs and reviews. With Zeblist, we aim to give everyone instant and easy access to this valuable information."

Zeblist knows that travellers are on the move and need quick and easy access to the information that they want, so they created a streamlined design and interface, making it simple for users to add places and find new ones. The app has several key features for making discovery simple and easy:

  • My Lists: In just a few taps, users can create and share lists of up to fifteen of their favorite places per category (Drink, Dine, Stay and Do) in any city around the world.
  • Friends: Connecting to existing and new networks in the app is easy and allows the user to gain access to their friends' lists on Zeblist.
  • Search: The Search functionality can be tailored by both the location and the experience that the user is seeking (Drink, Dine, Stay and Do). Search results include a snapshot of the each location's details and are viewed on a map. 
  • Nearby: The GPS activated Nearby feature allows the Zeblist user to instantly find the places that their friends have recommended for dining, nightlife, accommodation and entertainment that are in their immediate proximity.
  • Activity: The live Activity feed keeps users up-to-date with the latest updates from their network on Zeblist. As well as the locations their friends have discovered, the activity feed allows users to share photos, insights, ask questions and stay connected with the latest in travel and entertainment amongst their social network.

"With Zeblist everyone can be their own curator of their local and travel experiences," said Brodsky. "We are thrilled with the response we've received so far."

Zeblist is free and available for both iOS and Android platforms globally. You can download the app from the iOS App Store and Google Play. For more information, please visit http://www.zeblist.co/.

About Zeblist

The two founders of Zeblist are avid travellers, having collectively visited 68 countries, many of them together. It was through their travels that they realized there is no easy way to track their lists of favorite places and share recommendations amongst friends, and the idea for Zeblist was born.
