The new tripwolf Trip Planner

It’s finally here! The new update, including our new Trip Planner, is live in the App Store and Google Play Store.

For months we’ve been collecting your suggestions, discussing them in detail, making a plan, and putting it into action. The result of our efforts is a new and improved Trip Planner! Now you can do a whole lot more than just adding the best tripwolf tips to your trips; you can arrange them just the way you want them, and separate your trip into individual days. In addition, we’ve made the routing function much simpler. Instead of just seeing the route from A to B, you can now view the complete travel route for your entire day!

We don’t want to spoil all the surprises, so we’ve put together a video showcasing the best new features.

Curious? Then download the update now for your iPhone, iPad, smartphone or tablet and try out the new Trip Planner for yourself!

And for anyone who just can’t wait through the video, here’s a quick overview of the most interesting new features:

  • Plan your trip day-by-day! Starting now, you can add a start and end date for your trip, allowing you to plan each day individually. You want to spend your arrival day getting settled and enjoying a quiet bite to eat, and really dive into sightseeing on day two? No problem!
  • If you’ve just planned a quick weekend getaway, it’s especially important to use your time as efficiently as possible. That’s why we’ve created Trip Optimization! With just one click, you can automatically sort your trip according to distance from your starting position.
  • View your trip on the map: It’s been possible in the past to view all of the points of a trip on the map, but now you can see your route on the map too! This means at any time, you can see where you’re currently located and how to get from A to B, from B to C… and so on.
  • Add multiple locations to your travel guide simultaneously: You can select all the locations you’re interested in from a list, and then add them to your trip at the same time. With just one click!

Canada – where untouched nature and lively cities meet

Canada is all the rage these days. And not just as a running gag for many Americans who have threatened to emigrate since the start of the Trump presidency. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, known for his good looks and magnetic charisma, has managed to become somewhat of an internet sensation, warming the hearts of people from all across the world as a positive example of tolerance, diversity and light-hearted diplomacy.

Clearly this country, the world’s second largest by landmass, is worth a closer look. The First Nations arrived first, followed by the Inuit, the French, and the English, all of whom have shaped Canada’s diversity. We’ve tried our hand at crafting a little overview and some travel tips for this gigantic North American country, with its stunning nature and multicultural society!  … Read More

Filter, sort and search: the new update is here!

Thanks to your emails, Facebook messages and reviews in the App Store, we have a pretty clear view of what you want from our app, and which functions are asked for most often. That’s why over the last month we’ve been concentrating our hardest on one thing: an update of maps and searches.

Until now, it’s only been possible to search for exact street names and addresses in our city travel guides – but in country and region guides, the quantity of data has made this impossible, until now. Starting now, all travel guides include street search! Yay!

In addition, there was another suggestion we got quite often: a POI search on the map would make your lives a whole lot easier when you’re traveling: so we polished up our database and made it possible. No matter if it’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral or the Empire State Building – just enter the restaurant, point of interest or whatever you’re looking for into the search field, and we’ll show you where to find it and how to get there right on the map.

Since we’re adding new content daily, and our travel guides are always getting bigger, one thing is particularly important to us: ease of viewing. That’s why we’ve now given you the option to filter your lists. For instance, you’re viewing the chapter on gastronomy but you really just want to see the cafés? It’s possible starting now. Restaurants are simply and instantly hidden from view!

Of course, the filter can also be transferred to the map, which is particularly useful, for example, if you want to know which cafés are nearby. Starting now, you can also filter according to distance – for example, open the filter view and reduce the results to just those cafés that are within a radius of one kilometer from your current position. You’ll be enjoying coffee and cake in less than 15 minutes!

The map is also now context-sensitive in all areas. This means: when you open a list in a travel guide, for example points of interest, and then switch to the map, this filter is now transferred to the map. Of course, this can be deactivated again with just one click.

And last but not least: Sorting! You can now sort all lists in a travel guide by popularity, distance or alphabet, which will save you huge amounts of time as you’re planning your trip.

We hope you like this update and that you’ll continue to share your vision for the app with us. You can write us an email anytime at support@tripwolf.com with your feedback – we’d really love to hear it! If you like the update, we would also really appreciate if you would rate the app in the App Store. That will help us increase the popularity of the app and continue working on even more great improvements. Thank you!
