TripAdvisor.com is a travel website that assists users in gathering travel information, posting reviews and opinions of travel-related content, and engaging in interactive travel forums. I've used TripAdvisor for years to find user reviews of hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions (such as museums, zoos, parks, nightlife, sports, etc.). I've even posted a few of my own reviews.

I was hoping that the Android app for TripAdvisor would be as helpful and easy to use as the website, and it is. The screen layout and fonts are excellent, with everything optimized for the smaller screens of mobile devices, and all the features of the website are there. Besides the restaurants, hotels, and tourist attractions, the app includes the user forums and the "Find a Cheap Flight" feature.

Information about hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions includes a map link. On my Kindle Fire, the link used the MapQuest App mapping, which is a Google Earth-type view.

If you've never used TripAdvisor, you're in for a treat. It has to be the single most extensive resource for travel information, and it's worldwide, not just the U.S. You can use it to check out restaurants in your own neighborhood, or plan a trip to a city on the other side of the world. You'll be astonished at the wealth of information in TripAdvisor's databases.

If you don't find what you're looking for in the search features, go to the forums, and if you don't see an answer to your question, post your question online. The TripAdvisor community is very active, and you'll usually get answers within a few hours.

I'm fairly new at using apps and I found this one very easy to navigate. Intuitive and comprehensive. Unbeatable for the price.
What more can I say?

This would have been a great app but for some inexplicable reason the Flight Advisor portion seem to have some bugs. Each time it is launched it would abort claiming internet connection could not be detected. Other sections of the app work just fine. Creator should debug.

Love this app and I am currently using it to plan a trip to Morocco. The problem is that as I try to open I get a message saying that this version is not supported anymore. However as I try to update the version it does not allow me because I am updating from a Kindle HDX and not a an android tablet. PLEASE, tell me a KINDLE version will be available SOON!

I don't choose a hotel or an activity when I visit a new place before consulting its reviews on TripAdvisor. And I have to thank them for introducing me to the best scuba diving company ever (in the Cayman islands) but this app kept getting me frustrated every single time I used it on my Kindle and I deleted it. It crashed every time I used it while planning my next vacation, while checking hotels, reviews, activities. I even kept rebooting my kindle to see if it was that something was amiss but that did not help. I'm sad but until they make it work for the kindle I will not use it as I want to stay away from this that frustrated me so much.

I got this app for my Kindle Fire HD. It definitely is not the same as using a desktop version through the web. I love the desktop web version, but disappointed on version that I got for my Kindle

We have relied on TripAdvisor for objective reviews for many years. However lately, we are questioning whether the posted reviews are objective or "planted". Our recent experience with some well-reviewed places have been decidely disappointing.

Every time I try to open on my kindle fire it says it stopped and then gives me the message that I need to enable location based services which I did. Still won't work. Uninstalling.

It simply does not work on my Kindle. I input the info and get an error message, over and over again. It's worth exactly what you pay for it.

The app did not work on my Kindle. I would not recommend this app to anyone because it did not work, nothing would open.
