Wist by Triptrotting

Travel startup Triptrotting is relaunching on mobile as Wist, an app that gives you the top five personalized suggestions for dining and drink in any given neighborhood or city, based on your likes, plus friends’ and locals’ recommendations. Triptrotting, before, was focused on combatting “clueless tourism” by connecting travelers and hosts online for local insight and suggestions, or even area tours. But in the many months since its raise, the team found that users were more interested in just asking locals for their opinions rather than anything else. The new app provides the top five recommendations of where to go eat or drink based on a number of factors, in order to give users a local’s insight no matter where they are.
