MapQuest launches travel blogs feature
Mar 04, 2013 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) --
US interactive firm AOL (NYSE: AOL) said that its MapQuest online mapping unit has launched a feature called Travel Blogs designed to help travelers capture and share their adventures within an online travel journal while encouraging others to set out on their own journey.
This is the second product introduction for the brand as it develops into a platform that helps inspire people where to go, plan how to get there and share their experiences.
Travel Blogs is available through a new iPhone (NASDAQ: AAPL) app available for download and on desktop allowing users to create visual archives of their trips using photographs, stories, reviews of places they visited and the route traveled.
The free travel blog app works both on and offline, so users can create a travel journal by adding images and other content even when they don't have an Internet connection.
According to MapQuest, this comes in handy for travelers visiting locations beyond where their mobile data plans provide coverage.
Once online, the app can sync to update the blog. From there, blogs can be shared at anytime through the user's social channels or via email through an individually curated distribution list.
In the coming months, authors will also be able to turn their blogs into a physical photo book, the company said.
