Roamz is a travel companion app for your iPhone that helps you discover new places around you. By integrating into your social media accounts (Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter and Instagram), Roamz provides a live filterable stream that gives you an overview of what others are talking about in your current local area.
The fabulous concept of Roamz is that it provides you with recommendations based on your check-ins, your friends’ check-ins, social likes and dislikes and shared interest of those in your community. The Roamz app takes away the need to filter through numerous social platforms to find out what’s popular and happening right now, rather the app helps you make valued decisions by compiling data from all your social sources.
Applications that build recommendations based on social activity will soon be a huge marketplace and it’s exciting to see an app finally being developed and supported that takes advantage of the plethora of social data being consumed everyday.
