Looks pretty interesting…. pity I’ve not got many travel plans on! ;-)
About Dopplr – http://www.dopplr.com/
Dopplr is an online service for frequent travellers. It was created by an international team of world travellers. We saw a need for this kind of service, but discovered that no one was offering it. So we did it ourselves, and are delighted that other people are liking it as much as we do.
Dopplr lets you share your future travel plans with a group of trusted fellow travellers that you have chosen. You can use the service with your personal computer and mobile phone.
The Dopplr ‘beta’ service is open by invitation only. Once invited by an existing member you will be able to invite others to join Dopplr and share your travels.
We would like to remind you that you can use your mobile phone to invite friends to join Dopplr. Once you’re signed up, you’ll need to first register your mobile number at http://www.dopplr.com/account/sms . After that, just SMS their email address to Dopplr, with a + symbol in front of it. For example, text +email@example.com to +44 7797 806 170. That’s all you need to do. This number will only become more useful in future so save it in your phone book.
Please refer to our blog – http://blog.dopplr.com – where we discuss things like service improvements, travel tips and various ideas/tricks for using the service better. Feel free to stop by and comment. We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page – http://www.dopplr.com/main/faq – that we will keep updating.
