Yeah, this is very cool. I used to do something like this by searching with a large radius from Matrix by ITA Software (which powers the backend of many flight search engines). Very, very cool to get it in a few clicks. Very cool too.
Priced everything! I can know the budget in seconds. Gave luggage/carryon info on the same page. Itinerary illustrated making it easy for me to visualise. Can book INSTANTLY, locking all flights in at once! And, BEST of all, it chose locations I would not have chosen (from lack of personal experience) thus opening my mind and allowing for random dreaming and possibility. Potential Indiana Jones adventure thing. Very cool.
For a russian resident (such as myself) visa is a critical point. When I'm choosing where to go and each my traveling starts from making a list of all accessible countries.
All the visa requirements data is shattered across hundreds of forum and blog posts: some are outdated, some are just false. It's also difficult to search visa info in official websites because they look like shit and hard to navigate.
Now I will start my traveling with VisaList 😌
Good luck Hari and thanks for the awesome product!
Very convenient way to see where your passport allows you to go, and the visa requirements for each country.
There's also a bit of additional information for each country (eg: currency, time difference).
I think the product overall is good and has potential, I'm just a bit disappointed in ads because I really don't like them, and I think they make the interface a bit cluttered.
Just yesterday I was looking for a new maps alternative to try and break away from Google. I stumbled upon Sygic but didn't give it a fair shot so now that it's here I tried again and I have to say, it's better than I expected. I am currently travelling in Slovenia so I guess it's not the most used country for the moment. Anyhow, there are quite a few things that I like but I think there's definitely room for improvement. I would love to be able to see a satellite view(I use it often to know if where I'm going there's parking or other features that are not on the map), it's important that I can at least suggest adding/removing tags. Here many waterfalls are categorised only as that, while I think they should have at least the sightseeing tag too. It's the first tag in your search box, if I use it and this great places don't appear I will just think that you are very bad and move on(that's what happened yesterday). Reviewing is as painless as it gets which is nice.
Last but quite amazing if possible, would be a way to import lists from google maps or other services. I have over 600 stars on google maps which make it quite complex to move away. Having an export would be great too.
First installed it in 2012, the first route was a big deviation. Uninstalled it immediately. Yesterday (6 years later) installed it again and today uninstalled it. The looks are great, but it makes to many mistakes. 7 within 4km: 1.wants me to go in a street that's closed because of a new sewer (1 or 2 months already). 2.the next street is missing on the map. That's why I must turn. 3. On a main street I must go right to take a street just for bikes. 4. Sygic tell me to go across a parking lot because it's shorter (but much longer. Glad I didn't have my Mobil home with me). 5.Sygic wants me to drive into a one way street, that's not allowed for me. 6. It wants me to take the bus lane and 7. It tells me that close to a roundabout is a Speedcam. But there hasn't been one, never. This all happens within 10 minutes in 3 to 4 kms. I am cured and try Sygic in 2024 again.
