Vadovia – Explore the World Using Tips from Travelers

Admit it, you have wanted to see the world for years, but were too scared that the experience would fall disappointingly short of the amazing expectations you have let your imagination create. Traveling is not easy. Especially if you don’t know what it is you can expect or what to look for to being with. That is why VadoVia is an app that you have to download now if you have any plan, as minute as can be, that you will be traveling in the near future.

Why VadoVia? Because this app is not like any other travel guide or planner. Nope, VadoVia is your personal view into a destination and it’s powered by people who have been there.

What better feedback, advice, and input can you get than from someone who has already been to where you want to go?

You can search for your destination and from there look at a list of available tours, suggestions and commentary left by folks who have used those tours, and of course, rankings so that you can make judgments based on what is most important to you.

Using VadoVia also brings your travel experience into the future. No more paper maps or tour itineraries; you have access to all of that information from your iOS device. What is most important about this is that not only do not have a library of documents to tote around, you are kept informed of any last minute changes to your itinerary – instantaneously.

With VadoVia, you can choose to experience a new place almost like a local would. You can even create your own tours and specify if you want to explore by bus, bike, or simply by walking the streets. The app allows you to filter searches the mode of transportation, which makes it easy to plan different days using different ways to get around and immerse yourself.

Each tour and place you visit will be a part of the app, and it will be further enhanced with background information as if you had your own tour guide at your fingertips. You will walk away from each experience with so much more knowledge about what you just saw and a stronger imprint of the experience in your memory.

Nothing else can come close to making those memories.

When searching for places to visit, partial day tours, or whole day tours, you can peruse what fellow wanderers have posted and suggested, along with notes, photos, and videos of what they found fascinating.

What is really neat about VadoVia is that you can capture images from your device and then use them and the app to create digital postcards to share with friends and family. I really liked this, because who has time to buy and mail postcards?

The app is super easy to use and I had no issues finding what I needed. At times I stumbled across things I did not intend to find, but they turned out to be future destinations that I now look forward to. At times I would tap on a destination for which it seemed a tour was available, but upon tapping no information popped up. It was a bit disappointing, but something I am sure developers are working on fixing.

Nonetheless, if you plan on traveling, whether it be within the U.S. or abroad, I highly recommend you download VadoVia – your trip and your experience will be so much better.

Spritzr – Get Matchmaking Suggestions from Friends

Are you looking for a match but worried about signing up into random websites where you are among a bunch of total strangers? Do not worry. You have the first ever match making app Spritzr that has the facility where you can hang out with your own friends with match making suggestions coming in for you from your friends themselves. That’s a relief isn’t it?

Spritzr is a free app available on the play store and it can be just downloaded and installed. On opening the app, it requests to sign in with Facebook. The app claims that it doesn’t post on Facebook but needs to sign in with Facebook as it is used to check for security and accuracy.

When signing in with Facebook, Spritzr requests access to public profile, friends list, date of birth and photos without which a user cannot use this app.

Once signed in, the app requests the user to choose their path from 2 given options.

  • In a relationship – Choosing this option lets you suggest matches for friends who are single. It takes you off the market and labels you as a matchmaker
  • Single – Choosing this option or path is perfect if you are looking for quality matches

If you aren’t sure of either of the above, you can always choose the most appropriate one and switch to another one later.

On choosing this option, you are taken to a page where you have 2 tabs. One is “Friends” tab where you play matchmaker for the Spritzr community. Here you are given 10 matches for a day to suggest for your friends. You can invite friends to join the community as well.

Other is the “Community” tab where you can suggest matches for people other than your friends but are looking for one match.

When viewing each profile, there is an information “i” icon that will let you view information like height, personal information like, how many kids, etc., qualification, a short profile with interests and some photos. Below this profile, there is a list of suggestions to recommend for matchmaking and you as a matchmaker can suggest appropriate matchers from these candidates for them.

Spritzr takes you to a page where you enter your information like, gender, who you are looking for (e.g. man or woman) and where you are looking for (location, needs entering postcode) and based on the post code entered, Spritzr will fetch location.

You are then taken to a page where you input information like a short introduction / description of yourself, gender, interested in man or woman, height, smoker or not, religious faith (optional), politics (optional), kids (optional), education (your highest qualification), school (name of school that you attended), work, interests (should choose 3+) and finish profile.

Once you have completed the above, you will be taken to a page where you have 2 tabs. The “Friends” tab where you play matchmaker for the Spritzr community and the “Community” tab where you can suggest matches for people who are looking for one.

The menu for Spritzr is on the top left side of the app window. Below are the features of the app.

  • Shows the number of Karma points and number of friends
  • Suggestions – Tapping this shows suggestions based on the profile that you have created
  • Messages – This tab has any messages that you may have received from friends or others
  • Settings – Tapping this, the user can set up notifications for new messages, successful matches and when new friends join

While Spritzr may seem attractive and safe cos you hang out among a bunch of friends and match suggestions come from them, there are some negatives like it cannot be used without signing into a Facebook account.
