Startup weekend London inspires new travel apps

Three weeks ago, Grey Horse Apps, an Irish based startup participated in Startup Weekend London, held at the new CampusLondon at Silicon Roundabout. Realising during the weekend that more people than ever are forced to look for work and new opportunities abroad, Grey Horse Apps developed a new travel app for iPhone and iPad, to connect people with their roots.

Published today, the eagerly anticipated ‘Travel home’ app, allows users anywhere in the world to see in real time how far away they are from home. As the user walks, cycles, drives or travels by airplane, the app updates as they move.

This is the first in a series of new travel apps by the disruptive startup, who was recently nominated for the 2012 social media awards.
