One thing we’d probably appreciate is a travel app that is both appealing and simple to use, giving you all the detailed and specific information of a travel destination alongside stunning photos that make you want to be there already. It would be even better if said app also lets you find hotels, plan accommodations and set itineraries all inside the app on a good-looking interface.
On the other side of the fence, creating such apps might be challenging though not impossible. Many designers have attempted to create the idea of a travel app. And some of them are really good. Here is a showcase of some of the more fascinating and appealing ones.
