What better way to discover hidden gems in cities across the world than by spying on the Instagram photos of local citizens?
The FREE Jetpac City Guides iPhone app is a visual guide to over 6,000 cities all over the world!
Jetpac, famous for recently being acquired by Google, is a company that creates social travel apps.
Their free iPhone image-recognition app, ‘City Guides’ enables you to get a visual guide to over 6,000 cities all over the world. From San Francisco to Kathmandu.
Jetpac claims to be the expert local guide as, according to the company, they have ‘analysed every pixel of public Instagram photos’ to determine where you should be at any given time. Now you can find bars women hang out in around your local area, the best views, or where the hipsters are.
The app also features a ‘Snappyness Rating’ which enables people to vote places up by sharing photos on Instagram. The City Guides app then lists the ‘Top Ten’ places of your local area based on their Snappyness rating. The ratings include entertaining categories such as ‘The top Hispter Bar in San Francisco’.
The app also lets you ‘follow your tribe’ by looking up where likeminded people tend to hang out. Follow Your Tribe includes finding clusters of surfers to a soiree of wine lovers to a gathering of business travellers.
KarryOn rates this a nifty app which enables you to get recommendations from your Instagram community. The fact that the app is super easy to use makes it even better!
