What can you use the app for?

Visitacity.com is a travel website that lets users create their own guides and itineraries. The application showcases a number of highly popular destinations on its homepage, including cities like Vienna, Berlin, Geneva, Tokyo, Bangkok, Taipei, London, Rome, Paris and others. The user can click on the city or use the dropdown boxes at the top of the page to filter by city and itinerary length. One to five day itineraries are offered. The city pages include popular attractions and landmarks as well as a list of unique itineraries based on the user’s length preferences. Each itinerary page provides even more detailed information with a schedule, embedded Google map and the ability to add attractions or find activities.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Visitacity.com offers a quick, easy way to create a travel guide. While the service is very user-friendly, it is competing with a huge number of other travel-focused websites. So far it hasn’t garnered much attention on the web. While Visitacity.com seems to go mostly unmentioned and undiscussed, the site does have a lot to offer anyone who plans to travel to any of the cities it features.

What are the differences to other apps?

Visitacity.com is a little different from other travel sites because it focuses on well-known cities. Users can find attractions, activities and travel routes through some of the world’s most beloved and historic urban regions. Of course that leaves little for the traveler who doesn’t want to stay in or close to a major city, but for everyone else it is an attractive way to start making vacation plans.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Visitacity.com’s design isn’t remarkable, but it is pleasant and user friendly. The bland site header is offset by vibrant photos of each city. Each photo is clearly marked so newcomers will have no trouble finding the destinations they are interested in exploring. The features are well-organized and – best of all – the site is not littered with annoying advertisements. The user can enjoy a no pressure, relaxed experience that doesn’t make them feel obligated to buy travel services.

How does the registration process work?

Users are not required to sign in to use Visitacity.com. There is a registration option for users who want access to all features. The user can begin by clicking the black “Sign In” link at the very top of the page. A box will pop up and invite the user to sign in with a Facebook or Google account. Users can also click the blue “Register” link at the bottom of the form to sign up with an email account. Doing so makes the form shift from login to registration mode and asks the user for an email address and password. The user is instantly signed in after submitting the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

Visitacity.com is available to all users at no cost. There are no subscription fees or purchase requirements to maintain account access. This is a good thing because, while the site compiles lots of great information, it’s information that could be obtained elsewhere for free. The site provides an easy-to-use interface that lets the user compile all the key details to start their travel plans. That’s well worth the 10 seconds it takes to create an account.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Visitacity.com is a great tool for anyone who plans to visit any of the cities the site covers. A lot of helpful information is available with each itinerary. The user can also customize their travel guide based on length of stay, number of travelers and any other places they would like to see or things they would like to do. The site is available at no cost and doesn’t shove advertisements in the user’s face, so it’s a nice escape from the more popular travel websites.
