Addictive - Great Discovery App

As soon as I started using this app I found myself addicted. I loved logging all of the places I had visited that I loved into my journal. It reminded me of the magic of the city. I especially enjoy checking out my friends’ journals whenever I am in search of a spot I had yet to discover... or whenever I was about to visit a city I had never been before. For me, it’s all about the travel experience and sharing that with friends. It was about discovery and getting excited about the cool places I was about to visit.

Finally a way to share my recommendations and save spots I still wanna visit!

I live in New York and get asked practically every day by friends visiting the city if I have any recommendations. With UJ I can simply share my journal. I also love that I can see which spots are popular with different friends of mine, so I have a better idea of what each place is like.

Finding cool places through my friends

Great app to share my favorite hot spots through my friends. Easy to navigate and I’ve found new places in NYC that I never would of found.
