Tripadvisor city guides
TripAdvisor City Guides was the first native mobile app that TripAdvisor ever offered. Travelers could download maps, reviews and photos and use the app offline when traveling abroad. We reached 1 million downloads in 3 months while maintaining user rating of 4.5+ on both iOS and Android App stores.
London Olympic Games selected TripAdvisor City Guide as its official travel app. Glamour magazine selected TripAdvisor City Guides as one of the best 50 apps ever created. It maintained 4+ user rating for 4 years until we migrated most of its features into TripAdvisor Mobile app and took it off the App stores.
I designed the app and lead user research and testing, both in the lab and on the field. Some key capabilities of the app include Offline data access, Self guided tours, and Point me there. Each of these had unique design challenges.
