Ratings and Reviews
Overall a great day to day itinerary app
The app has a great clean layout for any user to use. Perfect for spontaneous day to day planning, helps you find things to do near by.
One thing I would recommend to add, being able to make dinner reservations within the app. Great overall for finding things to do in a new city!
Welcome 2.0 Lacks What Made Welcome Special
I was truly bummed today to pull up one of my favorite apps to check a future travel destination to find a top to bottom overhaul of it’s features. What made Welcome so fantastic to me was it’s AI driven Day Planner, where it would walk you through a mock day at your chosen location. Then in a Tinder style swipe system you choose or nix alternate plans and it would integrate those choices into updated plans. I can’t count how many days in different destinations I let Welcome take the wheel.
As someone who gets overwhelmed by the constant barrage of travel recommendations trying to compile and cross reference every pro/con, it was a beautiful reprieve to allow this app to plan fantastic itineraries.
If the original Welcome wasn’t popular it wasn’t a content issue it was an exposure issue.
They’ve now transitioned into a Trip Advisor-esque app that doesn’t hold a flame to its predecessor, and while of course I wish them well and all the success, I hope someday another company realizes the magic in the original vision and finds a way to market it better. Any time I shared the app with friends or family they were amazed by how inventive it was. It’s sad that it appears none of the previous submissions or content has been brought over. Again, I’m so happy for the team in their success in bringing this version to market but hopefully they’ll be able to take the magic of the original and introduce it into this new iteration.

Local, Real-Time Travel Tips
I’m generally a skeptic of travel apps but Welcome has won me over. It’s real time, personalized recommendation feeds helps me find local spots that I wouldn’t otherwise know about (even in my own city)! I also love how I can create itineraries to share and follow other influencers or brands that I trust to see where they’re going. It’s helped me plan ahead and also live more in the moment when I’m somewhere new. Thank you to the smart people who built this app!
