Lastminute iPhone App – Topsee

26 Nov

Last night I was rather pleased to attend an event organised by the peeps at Lastminute Labs to promote their latest iPhone application, TopSee.

The TopSee app allows you to experience London in a unique different way. It’s been populated by bloggers who mostly spend their own life exploring the hidden gems of the city. There are indeed a lot of apps out there that already provide you with the same functionalities, however the unique selling point for this app is that they are not recommending a specific venue (ie. the best bar in Soho) but a unique element (ie. the best mojito to have in London).

As you can see from the video-demo below, the interface has been beautifully designed. As soon as you open the app, you get geo-located, and through an awesome photo-feed you’ll be able to browse all ‘the top things’ for you to enjoy.

Once you find something interesting you want to experience, you can tweet it and post it to Facebook automatically from the app. The only thing that I’d make more clear within the interface is the ‘shaking’ functionality. I downloaded the app without watching the video below, and I got stuck on the first page without knowing that I’d have to shake the iPhone to get more suggestions. I wonder how many people are going to download the app like me without watching the video and simply through WOM… so definitely something I would add!

You can follow the TopSee team on Twitter, through their blog and download the app below.

 

 

Overall, a great application chaps!

    Unfortunately I couldn’t make it along last night but downloaded the app nonetheless and have to sa that it’s quite cool. The most striking thing is the way it looks. Gorgeous…

    Hey Rax
    Shame you couldn’t make it. It was a good night, quite funny speakers as well.
    As I’ve mentioned within the post already, the interface is amazing and definitely a nice benchmark – however there are a few things I’d improve.

    Also, every well developed app is generally rather heavy in terms of size.
    This one definitely is – I had to delete three major apps to host it on my iPhone :O(
