Making the most of your meetup

Making the most of your meetup

TripLinks is the friendly meet-up App, connecting business travellers (and people at home) from around the world. Most people are fairly comfortable with meeting new connections made online, but don’t forget these 10 safety & etiquette tips to keep you safe and ensure that you have a great time. 1.) Safety first: trust your instincts! There is always risk when meeting someone new, regardless of how you initially came across them. Keep in mind that you are meeting a stranger you know nothing about. If something about the person, situation or location seems unsafe, then trust your instincts! It's not rude, just be clear about your boundaries; your personal safety is top priority. Always know your options, think ahead and keep in control. Take a phone with you and make sure it's...

TripLinks new update...bye bye bugs!

TripLinks new update...bye bye bugs!

Over the last few days we released updates for TripLinks on iOS and Android...they've been a little while coming; as the first ones based on real user data, there were quite a lot of bugs reported! We're always really thankful (if not exactly pleased!) when people take the time to report bugs, because this means two things: a) that they care about TripLinks, and b) that we can make it even better to use! Our tech team are already working away on the next updates; the new version should have some nice new features and won't only be about fixing broken things! Please do give us your feedback, it will really help to shape the future of the app to be what you guys really want it to be!...

The very essence of TripLinks!

The very essence of TripLinks!

TripLinks has a lot of cool little features: we've included different categories to inspire people to use it in different ways, like practising your Spanish with a real Spanish traveller on a business trip to your local town; using it to break the ice with the commuters you'd otherwise ignore every day on the train; or perhaps finding someone to go for a coffee during office hours to get out of the house - essential for all those people who work from home and don't see anyone all day! Great city, great bars, great beers...no company? But, the real essence of TripLinks, the reason we founded it, is for those travellers who find themselves at a loose end in a place where they don't know anyone. TripLinks is out now and free to download from the App Store and the Play Store....

New video tutorials for TripLinks

New video tutorials for TripLinks

We've tried to make using TripLinks as easy as possible, but we've had a few questions in the days since we launched so have decided to make some video tutorials about different features. So far, we have covered creating an event, accepting someone's request to join your event, and searching for events locally and requesting to join one of them. We really hope that they are useful to you. If you have any questions or requests for tutorials on different processes, please get in touch!...

Welcome to the TripLinks community!

Welcome to the TripLinks community!

After months of hard work on the TripLinks App it was a great moment last week when we told the world that it's ready to download on the App Store and the Play Store! We were having a great time at Web Summit so didn't have time to do much in the way of updates to the blog, so here goes. We've tried to make it super-simple to use...but here are some tips to get you started. When you open the app, hit the "I'm here" button to see all events around you. If you're planning ahead for a work trip, you can use the "search event" button to specify your search location and date. If there are no events that take your fancy, please create your own! We've tried to give you some ideas about the different ways that TripLinks can be used in the drop-down menus for each category, but we know that...
