Visual Review: Triptease Travel App

Like the Tourisms website featured earlier this year, Triptease is a new kind of travel review app that puts personal photography at the heart of the reviews.

Developed by former social media expert, Charlie Osmond, Triptease is a social and visual antidote to the text-heavy review sites currently available online.

Users are invited to create a profile, and then upload a photo (via their computer or Instagram, and Facebook accounts) and a brief or write-up of a recent destination they have visited. They can also use the site to create and save destination “wishlists”, based on other recommended traveler experiences, and “follow” other profiles they like the look of. Think TripAdvisor for the Tumblr / Pinterest generation.
