Start Me Up! A profile of travel site InspiredAway

The online travel sector is fiercely competitive, with airlines, agents and aggregator sites all doing battle for people’s attention and cash.

It’s becoming difficult to compete on price alone, so the user experience is an increasingly important way for sites to distinguish themselves.

Similarly, decisions on where to take your next holiday involve a lot of research, so travel brands need to focus on providing relevant content to attract potential customers.

In general the travel industry is still playing catch up in this regard, with many sites yet to even establish a decent mobile presence, which has allowed InspiredAway to steal a march on its more-established competitors.

Built using responsive design, the site provides inspiration and advice on potential holiday destinations, while also allowing users to search for the best deals.

I spoke to founder Rob Berrisford to find out more...

Start Me Up! A profile of GIG BUDDY

The desktop is still a big part of buying gig tickets and associated travel and accommodation, but is that what users want?

As more people try to use mobiles on the go, to buy tickets etc. when they first hear about a gig, the opportunity is there for an app that encapsulates the live music experience, including sharing socially before and after the event.

This opportunity is one GIG BUDDY is hoping to capitalise on. it's a joint venture by SEE Tickets and PayPal, and built by RE:SYSTEMS. I spoke to Tim Hutchinson, Director of RE:SYSTEMS (who built the app), to get a flavour of this new service.

If you've used the app, let me know what you think.

Gyms are one of those services that start debate. Maybe it’s because a lot of us don’t cherish the thought of visiting them, but their membership terms can seem unreasonable.

And of course you have to trawl through their individual websites, as Matt Owen has done previously.

PayasUgym.com is a start-up that aims to make gym day passes easier to obtain, giving flexibility to the gym goer.

Graeme Horne was the first employee at hungryhouse.co.uk, and has just left after seven years to join PayasUgym.com, based in London. I spoke to Graeme and CEO Jamie Ward.

Start Me Up! A profile of Lookback

Mobile companies that thrive do so through great user experience. Jonatan Littke, Founder of Lookback, believes design has taken over technology and rightly so.

Yet for all its glory, a lot of design is still being created without knowing how it will be received.
