The last time I went on a road trip in the US i did a lot of planning and research beforehand. I not only mapped out the route we wanted to take but I also penciled in a whole batch of places I wanted to see. The Madonna Inn just up from LA in San Luis Obispo, Hearst Castle up the coast at San Simeon and the Aquarium at Monterey were the first three on my list. However, on our travels, I lost count of the amount of times that locals told me about the amazing places I'd missed on the way. I specifically remember being told about great eating places, quirky monuments and the sheer beauty of some of the natural habitats that I'd missed out on. How useful it would have been to have had an app like this one to help guide me.
UrbanBird is a fine little travel and photo app for iOS that is a great way to discover all the attractions that you might normally miss as you travel around the country in unknown territory. It will show you all the interesting stuff that's around you as you travel including local recommendations from local people that know, and fellow users who have traveled the route before you. As you take photos along the way, Urban Bird matches them with all the the most interesting places around your local area - creating an app that comes across as somewhere between a visual version...
