CoRover links you to fellow travelers


Some years ago, I was invited to join a group of about 20 tech writers from around the world on a trip to Japan where we would visit the host company’s new factory and attend the consumer technology trade show in Tokyo.

I hadn’t previously met any of the others on the tour and while I got to know several of them during the trip, it would have been great to connect with all of them right from the start.

That trip was a perfect occasion to use CoRover, a new app that lets you make a personal connection with other people who are traveling together, either for business or pleasure.

The app lets users get to know who the other passengers are on a trip and lets them interact with each other in a group chat or a private conversation. For safety and security, users can decide whether they want to allow group messages, private messages or chat notifications.

In addition to service as an introduction platform for a group of strangers with a shared itinerary, CoRover can be useful when group members need to share books, taxis, medicines, or knowledge about the tour or some of its destinations. It can also marshall the group’s assistance to deal with lost or stolen items and it can serve as a long-term connection to let member keep in touch after the trip.

CoRover is available as a free download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. More information is available at the CoRover mobile website.
