My name is Devin. My friends and I started working on building a travel community on our platform called Loopit(https://loopit.dev/). Simply put, we want to build a pinterest for tripadvisor where people can easily find travel inspirations and quickly curate a personalized itinerary. Users can see how other people spend their day exploring an area; what scenic spots do people visit, what are some popular tourist attractions, or what hidden gems people might have missed. We also integrated a itinerary planning interface so that the travel searching and planning process can be streamlined.
After hundreds of interviews and several sprint sessions, we finally have our MVP live on the APP store (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1580599572)!! It is now only available to the USA region due to our reverse geocoding limitations. Try it out and maybe you'll find some interesting places to visit for the long weekend!
So far we are having some hard time with approaching online travel groups and growth in general but we haven't tried paid customer acquisition methods yet. We are looking for feedback and suggestions. Thanks in advance for any help!!
