Hey travel addicts! I am Nick - one of the founders of Lookaround. We are very excited to be featured on Product Hunt and we would love to hear your feedback. We have been working very hard to create a unique travel guide that includes the newest type of media format out there - 360° videos. As we are in the early stages, we would be very happy to hear what you would like to see included in our app in the near future. To say thank you to the Product Hunt community, we are giving away a promo PRODUCTHUNT that gives you a discount for your next booking on our app.
@nick_mihaylov Neat! Congrats on the PH feature :)
@nick_mihaylov Berlin and Barcelona only?
@faisal_hassanx Yes, we expand on a city per city basis. Our very first market was Berlin and we recently launched Barcelona. We are expanding to more European cities in the next couple of months.
Very useful, when you want to prepare for traveling or decide where to go next :)
@rstankov Thanks for the feature Radoslav!
@azizfirat Well, that's embarassing. Our branding was done by a Berlin agency and we thought their work was genuine and original. We will investigate and provide an update on that. And thanks for the link! :)
@azizfirat @nick_mihaylov I wouldn't worry too much about it. Legally you only have to worry about "likelihood of confusability". Would you confuse the two? I would argue one is clearly a bike, one is clearly a face, and very unlikely to be confused. Not much to worry about here.
@azizfirat @wiggy Thanks for the input Noel. We are still consulting this with legal professionals as we don't want to get in legal trouble while being 100% focused on building an awesome travel platform. We will update you soon! :)
@wiggy @nick_mihaylov might not be a legal thing but from a brand point of view, I would go back to the agency and ask some questions...
Downloaded the app. Where does 360 play into the experience? I can't tell before I click when I am going to get a 360 experience and when it is just a photo.
@tomfrazier Hey Tom. That's a legit argument. We got that already from other users too. In th list view, you can see a small badge on the site saying 360 video. We are thinking of changing that to an icon. Once you open the tour, you have a play button at the center of the screen. We are changing this to an looping animation (similar to that of 360 videos on fb). I will update you once these changes are implemented.
