'Trippers Pal' is a tourist companion app that helps users meet locals and other travelers. For many solo travelers, it can be difficult to navigate a foreign country without a companion. This new app makes it easier to meet people by providing a platform for travelers to connect with local residents.

The main goal of the Trippers Pal app is to give travelers a new way to experience a destination by putting them in touch with someone who can give them the inside scoop. By connecting with local residents, tourists gain a new perspective on a city's culture, history and language. Travel guide books are often limited in their recommendations, but by connecting with local residents, tourists can gain access to a more broad perspective on what to see, eat and do.

The tourist companion app is useful for local residents as well. The app helps local people connect with travelers who can provide a wealth of knowledge about their culture, language and experiences from abroad.
