Powered by the Travel Knowledge Network, a group of travel websites harnessing their online community’s knowledge, the iPad application affords the anytime/anywhere ability to ask and get answers on travel and other destination questions; plus it makes use of geo location to find content nearby. By creating an account, a user can store their questions and answers and access them offline, a necessary requirement for anyone traveling off the grid without Internet access.
Tunnah explains, "Once you download the app, you can browse travel questions and answers from travelers all around the world. A simple sign-up then allows you to ask your own questions and share your answers to support other like-minded travelers."
In addition to convenience, answers through this app are up-to-date and often more accurate than guidebooks. "We have yet to see an app that taps into a global travel network, harnessing the knowledge of travelers across multiple communities. The social connectivity of ‘Ask a Nomad’ coupled with the speed of response makes this truly a valuable travel companion," says Tunnah.
