Trover – Share discoveries and find cool places around you
I like this app a lot. It’s a little like FourSquare in that one checks in. It’s a bit different though as the use-case is around discovering new places around you.
The other key about Trover is the initial UX is clean, intuitive. It’s fun to browse the photos from around the world too.
Key things Trover needs? A bigger network is certainly true. One easy suggestion is to let me tag people in photos; anyone tagged gets an invitation in their Facebook email. I would also like a filter for local which would sift out items I have already seen unless there is new information. I can only see the Marymoor velodrome so many times before I get bored. One other idea is to allow users to stitch items together, ie suggest that velodrome picture 1 and velodrome picture 2 are really the same place.
Regardless nice app, it’s fun in a way FourSquare and Yelp just aren’t sometimes.
