What people are saying:

“I love the drag-and-drop layout for customizing your journey. Go to ‘hst journeys,’ create a new journey, then insert maps, notes and photos. You can even use it as a wish list with maps, photos and to-dos for a longer trip—not just one destination. Don't miss ‘Points of Interest,’ which not only directs you, on a map, to must-see places, but also integrates insider tips.”—Jen Leo, Los Angeles Times

“Traditional travel magazines aim to inspire people to plan trips, and Travel by Handstand takes that concept one innovative step further by enabling readers to plan an itinerary as they read its destination-oriented articles. Updated daily, the app allows readers to easily save relevant information—some of which is news curated from other top travel magazines -- to what is essentially a trip-planning folder. Readers can add notes or maps and then share the bundle of information with others via e-mail or Facebook. Travel by Handstand's original articles are also the best edited of the travel apps I have surveyed so far.”—Sean O’Neill, “Five download-worthy travel mags,” The Passport Blog, BBC Travel

“HST has provided an easy-to-use tool as well as an informational and inspiring travel app. Clean design showcases beautiful content in a manner that provides a seamless viewing experience. I found myself lost in story after story as I moved through the app. It not only has excellent writing and imagery of interesting places but also provides a way to save and build multiple journeys, letting you dream about future trips. This app surpassed the competition because it provided innovative features and easy navigation, creating more than just a magazine or book in digital form. Overall the great content was well presented and easily consumed through this excellent app.”—Judges for the society of American Travel Writers Foundation’s 28th Annual Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition

Travel by Handstand is designed and published from its offices in Austin, Los Angeles, London, Mountain View, New York and San Francisco.
