Mobile Travel Guide: tripwolf for the iPhone

Avoid Roaming Charges When You Travel: tripwolf.com Starts a Free World Travel Guide for the iPhone

VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - The online social travel guide tripwolf launches the first iPhone application for travelers, enabling them to search and download professional, up-to-date travel information before and during their travels.

The free iPhone application by tripwolf allows users to search and download over 500,000 destinations worldwide and combines travel information from professional travel guides such as "Marco Polo" and "Footprint" with the cumulative knowledge of over 18,000 tripwolf members. The tripwolf iPhone application is available for free and can be used by anyone. Users can search the globe, download city guides to use online or offline, flip through thousands of sights, restaurants, hotels and much more. The application is currently available in five languages -- English, German, Spanish, French and Italian -- in any part of the world.

With the tripwolf iPhone application, users can gather all the professional travel information currently available on the iPhone without the need to be constantly connected to the Internet: The information is available offline, and by shaking the iPhone, the application offers recommendations close by. The tripwolf iPhone application also allows users to choose how much information they want to use offline and also takes different network connection speeds into consideration. Users have the choice of downloading either text only or the whole package that includes pictures.

"The possibility of using the tripwolf iPhone application offline was extremely important to us. We wanted travelers not to worry about paying high roaming costs," says Sebastian Heinzel, CEO of tripwolf, "while still being able to access their personalized tripwolf guides and benefit from location based interactivity."

Collaborating for several months with Salzburg Research, an Austrian research organization focused on innovative mobile solutions, the entire tripwolf team is excited to finally offer the innovative iPhone tripwolf application. Alexander Trieb, the tripwolf co-founder responsible for the implementation of the iPhone application, says: "Thanks to Nicolas Göll and his research team in Salzburg we really pushed the boundaries of the iPhone platform. By offering the tripwolf iPhone application we are taking the logical next step in the evolution of travel guides: Beyond the book."
