Trippy is an application that people can use to track and interact with others about the places that they've been to or the places they want to vacation to. The destinations are posted to the Trippy homepage, and listed as a beautiful image. For example, Riesenrad, Austria is displayed with a large ferris wheel, or Chelsea, London is an artistic take on their museum. Users can then tag these images as places that they've been to or places that they want to visit. Users can also comment on the various destinations, thus creating a social community centered around travel. The images are displayed in a way that resembles Pinterest and users can browse and continue browsing by simply scrolling downward. Users of Trippy could also manage their own board to display their own images from their travels or simply see the posts of the places that they want to visit or the places where they've been. There is also a search tool built into the app so users could seek out destinations by name and see what images are available and other Trippy members' thoughts on the place.
The Trippy team has been together since 1999, when they developed their first site called VirtualTourist.com. In 2011, they created Trippy. Trippy has been featured on Forbes, Business Insider, TechCrunch and Reuters. As of June 2012, over 7,000 people were using the trippy app on Facebook.
