WorldWize is a travel app that is perfect for millennial travelers who prefer to connect with locals and other travelers on the go rather than spend their time burying their noses in heavy guidebooks. The app allows users to see what other travelers are up to, access their recommendations and connect with people. The app uses a matching system -- if you match with someone who agrees to match back, you will be placed in a chat room to exchange information and ideas and meet up if you choose.
Users sign up to WorldWize through Facebook, but the potential connections to be made aren't limited to Facebook, but extend to everyone who has downloaded the app.
The app is free to download and available on iTunes and Google Play.
