TRIPADVISOR 10 FOR IOS AND ANDROID ADDS TRAVEL GUIDES, IPAD-ONLY OPTIMIZATIONS

TripAdvisorTripAdvisor has unveiled TripAdvisor for iOS 10.0 alongside TripAdvisor for Android 10.0. The app’s main highlight is the introduction of Travel Guides for selected locations.

The new release also allows users to submit up to 10 photos with each review, plus implements a number of optimizations for iPad users.

The Travel Guides feature provides tips, ideas, background info and local knowledge, either written or curated by experienced travelers. Look for the Travel Guides section when searching a specific city — users must sign into TripAdvisor to view any guide in full.

Once opened, each guide typically includes an introduction, list of general tips and then finishes with a list of recommended places to visit — tapping each one reveals a user-written introduction and more tips. From here, tapping the name of the attraction again accesses its own dedicated TripAdvisor page.

Elsewhere, both platforms now make it possible for users to include up to 10 photos with any reviews written in the app itself. The iOS version also implements an automated translation feature to render reviews in the user’s own language.

Version 10 has also been optimized for iPad users with a new layout aimed at delivering faster performance. Also added is easy access to the Travel Guides as well as neighborhood information where available.
