What people are saying
Upon reading some reviews coming from Gogobot’s users made me realized how simple yet helpful Gogobot is. Some of these reviews are listed below:
“Easy to use Trying to get a hang of using it, but i like it. It has its ease of use & no need to “check-in”. Although, I have yet not able to share it with not friend, (& I’m against FB) it asked if it could access my contact, but when I do search, no contacts found. Meh… I’m cool I’m the only one using this among my friends. But others might not be”

“Best new app! I have found so many local events on this app that I would have never known existed without the app. I am new to the area and this is helping me find things I enjoy doing. I love that all the biggest and best festivals for the week are listed and you don’t have to go searching the web. Best new app!”

“Finally android users can also enjoy this great app. It’s not just for travel, it’s great for local experience too. Other than being the best traveling app ever, you can also find amazing new places and events where you live. Instead of taking the Lonely Planet with me to a new traveling destination, all I need is my phone and I can even get my friends reviews on places around. I just love the postcard feature and I love the fact I can document the places I’ve been just by clicking one button.”
