How many Facebook friends do you have? I bet you have at least a hundred and maybe a whole lot more and I'm sure they travel all over the world and share their photos and the stories of those trips  with their friends. So why not take that concept to its logical conclusion by utilizing all that information they are sharing and use it to plan a trip of your own? Roam7 is a travel and review application that helps you choose your next vacation destination based on your friends' recommendations rather than on a travel guide written by 'experts' that you don't know and, more importantly, don't know you!
 
Roam7 lets you easily plan, explore and collaborate on vacation trips with the help of your friends by automatically generating travel advice from their vacation photo albums on Facebook. Its probably rare that friends will post comments to travel review sites but they will happily share their photos and memories on Facebook so it seems a great idea to use that content and the captions attached to see their travel stories. Roam7 automatically identifies and extracts these travel experiences and turns them into travel advice for you.  When you are planning a trip, the app tells you which of your friends have been to your potential destination before, where they stayed, their favorite restaurants and  what they did while they were there. Planning a trip on Roam7 is like having a travel guide written by your friends except they don't have to do anything - not even submit a travel review. Roam7 is also a great way to keep track of your own travel adventures as well as your friends'. See all the beautiful travel photos and get ideas for your next trip. You can even tell your own stories together with your trip buddies and get your very own  web address. Roam7 can become your single place on the web for all your travel memories, plans and dreams.
 
It's well documented that we here at the FeedMyApp offices love a good travel app and we do love to travel. I've narrowed my list down to Barcelona and maybe a road trip from New York down the East Coast of America and through Kentucky and the Carolinas to visit friends and then on to New Orleans. I'm still working on that one. Roam7 is a great little travel app that is kinda like a very personalized Trip Advisor. The big difference though, of course, is that with Roam7 all the photos and travel stories are created by people who you know will give honest true opinions about their travel adventures - your friends. This excellent, colorful and fun travel app features interactive maps that come alive with your friends' adventures making trip planning a fun social experience. Now, where are Charlotte, Greenville and Louisville on this map? I'm itchin'.
