Checking out our competition

While brainstorming the idea, deciding on the main features, drawing rough sketches of the main concept screens, we had to check out our competition.

Today, it feels like everything was already invented and we have no chance of creating a new idea. That's what makes this stage of the progress so important. 

These are the main application competitions all over the world.
* Stray Boots - an application which discovers the coolest parts of the your city in a fun, interactive way with no reservations, no set schedule, and no Debbi Downers. Founded in New York City, using a mobile technology and smart clever content to explore the city. 
Available on the AppStore (not free).

* City Quest - Every city has its secrets. Imagine being given the key to unlock and discover them. Embarking on the CityQuest™ game experience will transform the player into a true adventurer discovering the city, its history and hidden mysteries.

* TripAdvisor - Plan and have your perfect trip with TripAdvisor. With over 75 million candid reviews and opinions by travelers, TripAdvisor makes it easy to find the best hotels, great restaurants, and fun things to do, wherever you go. Our robust flight search helps you find airfare deals, even on the go. And booking options for hotels, restaurants, and airfare are just a tap away. 

What makes us so unique is the fact that our application is in Hebrew and all of our data information will come directly from well-known opinion leaders who live in Tel-Aviv. These people will share with us and our future app users their secret places, the best attractions  to visit while staying in Tel-Aviv. Further more, the user will determine how much time he has to spend in the city, and the app will help the user to make the best of the time he has to spend.
