Searching for “travel apps” in the App Store can present an overwhelming number of options, all touting the best ways to plan, share and remember your treasured travel experience. But there are far fewer apps that cater to niche travelers, particularly female solo travelers. Chirpey is a mobile app that does just that: empowers female travelers to connect and explore, all with a vote of confidence and support from their peers.
Female travelers can download Chirpey for free, then they can create an account using email or Facebook. Chirpey requires a few steps and profile analysis to verify all members to ensure the safety of its users.
Once users have the app, they can join already-established “flocks” of travelers, or create their own flock based on certain interests or destinations. Members can search the “chatter” page to find like-minded travelers visiting the same destinations or regions. Post a question, suggest a meetup or share tips about a location. Each thread has information about the topic, a discussion page, a displayed list of members and the option to leave feedback about the subgroup.
Current flocks have already been created in many destinations in Southeast Asia (Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar), South Korea and Israel.
With a strong and growing online community, travelers can also connect via Chirpey’s Facebook group.
