Anyone who is a regular reader of FeedMyApp reviews will know just how much we love a new and innovative travel app. To be quite honest, we feel a little starved of great ones of late. Despite the plethora of travel related apps that exploded onto our lives in the early days of app development, there haven't been that many recently that have managed to stir the interest of this would be traveler. However, here's one that could be very interesting to the more adventurous amongst us. VidPal offers a new concept in discovering new places by asking fellow travelers or locals to post real time videos of requested locations. This iPhone social travel application enables tourists to actually see what is happening in a specific location right at this minute to decide if it's a place that they really want to visit.

VidPal is a travel guide aid that allows the average person with a mobile phone or a video camera to view and film different destinations around the world in real time. The plan for the app was to come up with an IPhone application that would sit alongside the travel website in order to give potential visitors the best up-to-date information on places around the world. This will give vacationers all the information and visuals that they when checking out new destinations that they might wish to travel to. In Vidpal's real-time global video marketplace, individuals can find or request a video of a travel location anywhere in the world. VidPal is, of course, dependent on having people all over the world who are willing to take a video of some of their favorite places. This turns the app into a discovery vehicle as much as an information app. Imagine finding an amazingly beautiful place on your travels and wanting to share your story with others. All you have to do is to upload the video to VidPal and viewers can indulge in the sheer beauty of the place and maybe even decide to go there themselves. They can even follow in your footsteps and discover it in the same way that you did when you first came across it. So the app becomes not only a travel guide where you can see real time video footage of places but also a discovery guide for travel inspiration. The developers state that they are "passionate about enriching people's experiences as they not only explore new cultures and destinations, but also as they explore themselves as global citizens." Sounds good to me.

VidPal offers a nice addition to the normal travel application by introducing real time video into the mix. While one could argue that you could easily search YouTube for travel information, there's no doubt that having an up-to-date and searchable platform conveniently connected to your travel guide would be even more useful. This simple to use, social travel guide app for your mobile can give you an instant and searchable look see into any number of places around the world. You can either use it to request that a specific location be filmed or you can search the video database to discover somewhere new – it’s your choice. The concept of the app is good and it's very convenient and easy to have tucked away on your mobile but, one has to say, it's success is totally dependent on its members providing the videos that people want to see. The developers would love to hear from any of you who want to be a part of a global revolution that make real time travel videos available to all its members. Are you ready to let VidPal take you on an adventure?
