hello, gtrot! we’re live!

This morning we launched the beta version of gtrot!  The launch version of the site makes it easier than ever to track your trips and share your travel plans with friends.  And because we use Facebook Connect, you can log into gtrot using your Facebook information – no registration necessary – and immediately connect with other users in your Facebook social network.

Try it out! Enter your past travel information, and then explore your friends’ trips - see where they are, where they’ve been, and where they’re going.  We make it simple: On the “My Friends” page, you can filter aggregated trip data by friend, city, or date to answer questions like, What are my friends doing for spring break? Who else will be in Montreal next week? Where is my roommate going this summer? Which of my friends has been to Paris? In a matter of seconds, you can find the holiday hotspots, get advice from friends who have been to your destination, and locate friends with overlapping plans.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll launch the booking features that will make gtrot.com the one-stop shop for everything travel.  We’ll soon offer traditional tools for booking flights and hotels, and social tools to help students share cabs to the airport and rides to/from campus.  These tools will be seamlessly integrated with the current interface, making it even easier to share your travel plans with friends.

We’re glad to have you as our very first gtrotters!  We hope you enjoy using gtrot and sharing it with friends.  We’ll be in touch over the next several weeks as we roll out additional features, and please send us your feedback so that we can make the gtrot user experience even better!

    This site is the best thing since sliced bread. You boys (young, intelligent men) are doing a great service for keeping in touch with your peers. You will be so pleased that you did because you have made it possible to be friends for the rest of your lives.
  • Awesome! Looking forward to trot'n.
