Stay.com, the service that allows you to peruse, create and share travel guides with friends, has announced new features for its iOS and Android apps, which should make using the service easier both online and offline.
The company timed the launch of the revamped mobile apps to coincide with the milestone of passing 1,000 Local Expert Guides available on the platform. For these, Stay.com gets input from selected leading chefs, fashion designers, baristas, artists, photographers and musicians in various cities.
Among the new features available on Android and iOS is an option for more detailed searching based on categories and neighbourhoods. The company added that as a result, users can now search online or offline for specific locations thanks to the integration of Google Places and OpenStreetMap. Users also have the option of posting their own current location along with a description and images.
Rounding off the list of notable upgrades, users can now also favorite specific guides for perusal later either online or offline and there’s a new ‘Discover’ tab for people looking for a little inspiration.
