Laila wants you to challenge your comfort zone and to go outside the tourist trail, and then some.
A mobile version of the popular USE-IT maps: free, not commercial and made by young locals!
But we need your support!
WHAT IS USE-IT?
USE-IT is tourist info for young people. We make city maps that show alternative sightseeing spots, bars, cheap places to eat and clubs where only the locals go. USE-IT exists in more than 30 cities in Europe, and is growing pretty fast. That’s probably because we’re absolutely non-commercial and because the info is written by locals in a plain honest way.
The maps are free and distributed in hostels, tourist infos and in the Couchsurfing network. Around 1.5 million of our maps are printed every year.
AND WHAT IS THIS APP?
We are not going to stop making the paper maps, but we really want to reach more people with this smartphone version. Basically, the app is going to show the same good content as the printed map with an interactive interface.
There’s also going to be a dog walking around the streets on the map. Everybody who has downloaded the app will see the dog at the same place at the same time. So you can go and meet other travellers by going there and by “walking the dog” together.
The app will be available for iOS and Android, and will be free to download for everybody. However, we DO need your money to create this baby!
WE NEED YOU HELP AND SUPPORT!
