myTab check In travel app connects Facebook friends

We all know how irritating it is when you missed a Facebook friend’s status and later found out they were in the same city as you during a trip. Or seeing a status update with ‘Hey, just arrived in NYC’ and then comes a ton of comments & questions: How long are you in Manhattan for? Oh no, I just left today and we could have met up. I only just saw your check in – are you still here?  All other check-in apps are based on real time and not the full trip. Just different versions of the same thing!  Yet, with myTab’s Facebook Check In App, we created a visual discovery that solves this problem and attached is a no-brainer screenshot:

With myTab’s App, check in your current start/end trip date, travel purpose and city…and you’re done. It sounds so easy yet it’s powerful because you can now see which friends are in the same city as you and for how long. So no more panicking that you missed meeting up In New York because hey, you’re in Manhattan for a few more days and so is your pal, Jim. Our integrated Map makes travels so much more spontaneously fun to create fantastic trip memories with people you actually want to meet up with.  It’s also perfect for seeing who’s in the same city as you…who you may want to avoid! Oh, and our “Confirm” action buttons are actually called “Brilliant” buttons, just for fun!

myTab’s Check In App is part of, an online gift card where you save travel cash and shout ‘put it on myTab’ so friends & family can contribute towards your trip. Then simply redeem the funds towards travel, all within our website. Travel is US domestic and US originating international travel but non US pals can gift US friends towards their celebration trips.
