Smart way to insert travel, something most people think about a couple times a year, into someone's daily routine, @gillianim. This is a really good example of "productized marketing." There's probably a better term for it but similar to content marketing, apps or sites tangential to one's core business can be an effective way to reach new users. KISSmetrics' MyAnalytics (cc @hnshah @Evanish), Crew's How Much To Make An App (cc @mikaelcho), and Front's Inbox Checker are a few examples that come to mind. P.S. This would be a nice addition to @chrismessina's #ChromeNewTabs collection.

@hnshah @Evanish @mikaelcho @chrismessina @rrhoover people think about travel often but rarely get around to turning those aspirations into concrete plans. At @hitlist_app we're very focused on making travel more accessible and approachable, which we do by giving you the most relevant information: what destinations are most affordable, how long it will take you to get there, and if anyone you know lives or has been there. Wandertab was a natural extension to help you discover more places and, as @jedc said above, realize how affordable they can be.

@rrhoover Crew has always done a great job with productized marketing. Coffee & Power (list of coffee shops with wifi & plugs), Unsplash (free stock photos that don't suck), How Much to Make an App and Good Mood Board.

@rrhoover Trying to separate "product" from "marketing" is foolish - so I'm not sure you need a special term for when they work together. But, you touched on some of the strategy behind wandertab. The challenge is just making the tradeoff between the cost of building a "tangential" product and the potential impact on growth, etc. In this case - it's just so simple - so we went for it. The only negative so far has been the loss of productivity among the team. :) I admit that it turned out to be more addicting than I expected...credit to @timotje's design/execution.

@gillianim @hnshah @Evanish @mikaelcho @chrismessina @rrhoover Like Charmin's SitOrSquat app? https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/... Or similarly Johnston&Murphy's Find-A-Shine app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/...

Just installed it. This is an awesome idea and beautiful implementation! Although... I fear I may end up getting distracting, forgetting why I opened the tab, and booking a getaway.. Oh wait is that the point? =)

I installed this yesterday, and what a great experience. Beautiful photos, and it doesn't slow down opening a new tab (like so many poorly written extensions do). It's a great reminder that travel isn't as inaccessible/expensive as you may think!

This is perhaps even more addictive than the native app. Way to go, Hitlist. Sorry, bank account.
