Letting others see how good you are at travelling
by on August 20, 2012
Wipolo is a curious app – one that uses email confirmations to let you plan and share your trips around the world.
While the idea is great in theory, such as being able to just send your confirmation and have it populate all travel, hotel and other elements through one digital assistant, it’s an odd process in practice.
For one, we sent an email to the booking master (which has to be from one of two addresses) and then waited for our itinerary to populate. It didn’t.
There’s no way to manually set it up either, so we were left with nothing while we waited.
There’s a whole wealth of info to be used, such as info on delays, reminders, currency converters, your schedule… but it’s hard to try this stuff when your trips don’t populate, and even if you send the email incorrectly there’s no notion of a bounceback.
And there’s the issue of needing to go pro to just do little things like see when your plane or train will depart or arrive – they know there are free apps for this, right? We’re fine with paying €50 a year for premium services but this isn’t one of them.
An OK app that should be easier to set up, easier to tell when things are working and overall, easier to use without having to pay through the nose (plus we’re not sure sharing your trip details over Facebook is a good idea either – although that also failed to work on the app too).
