Abstract [en]

The mobile technology that emerged with the smartphones and tablets has changed the way people travel. This has changed both in how bookings are performed, but also in the way travel destinations are browsed and explored. This thesis concerns the design and implementation of a prototype for exploring destinations, with the goal of finding out the most essential factors and parameters for travel browsing. With literature studies, user survey, paper prototyping and Hi-Fi prototypes, an implementation was made, written in Objective C and created as an iPad prototype. The application uses a globe-, map-, image- and list view as the main interfacesfor browsing destinations. The prototype uses 14 di↵erent APIs, with diverse functionality to be able to take advantage of searching and filtering of destinations, made available by the APIs. By incorporating social platforms, it was made possible to better target the user’sinterest, making the experience and exploration more personalized.
