City trips are booming in Europe and for many people these short holidays have become a year round pastime. Luc Deliance and David Kat, both avid travelers, know from experience that a recommendation can make or break your day – or even your entire stay. On a mission to transform city trips into intelligent journeys, they realized something was missing in the industry: personalized recommendations for activities. Their solution was weCity, a high performance iOS app that offers personalized recommendations for activities in Amsterdam. They approached Trifork to develop the app together with the designers from UNITiD.
weCity launched just on time for the summer of 2015. It is a powerful mobile travel app that oers tourists a wealth of personalized information, as well as a means to access that information without incurring roaming charges.
For example, if you are travelling with children on a nice day, you might be directed to Artis zoo, while the NEMO science center is a great destination if the weather takes a turn for the worse. The input is comprised of well-categorized and enriched city content, matched with data such as explicitly entered preferences, current location, weather forecast, time of day, and behavioral patterns.

“We knew weCity was a successful idea, but thanks to GUI design and Trifork, we hit the ground running. From the very start it was clear we had the right team and were very impressed by the quality of the people and their high ability to learn and execute.”
