Welcome to Placely! We want to bring more signal to geolocation.
We’re a startup focused on community-powered tips for local residents, homebuyers and visitors who want to discover the best things to do and see from locals who know their towns and cities best.
Placely will be a mobile-first platform that takes the worry out of planning detailed itineraries in advance. Using a smartphone or tablet, you’ll be able to get a feel for interesting nearby destinations when you’re already out and about. Through GPS, Placely will point you to nearby options and display images or videos along with short text, video or audio descriptions from community members and past visitors.
The emphasis will be on tips from knowledgeable locals, combined with experiences by friends in your networks, rather than reviews from random strangers or far-away experts. By encouraging people to document and curate meaningful places – getaways, rafting spots, hiking trails, offbeat stores, that special place where you fell in love – instead of just sharing photos of your cat, Placely will elevate the good stuff as we attempt to build a mobile experience that goes beyond anything in the marketplace today.
