A group of San Francisco locals, owners of a startup focused on digital city guides, asked Sibers to develop a web platform that would enable their users to create their own itineraries and browse through other users’ itineraries.
After knocking out the web platform, we built an application for iOS platform, that provide on-the-go access to user-created itineraries for a “perfect day” in San Francisco, the Golden Gate City, one of the world’s foremost destinations.
From the client’s main web page, a user can filter San Francisco itineraries by picking between “New” and “Most Popular”, and then refine their search by category, cost, duration, time of day, group type, or any combination of fields. By clicking on the “perfect day preview” a user can read the itinerary’s details, make comments, save it in a virtual pack, or use the itinerary during their San Francisco vacation.
Of course, the user can also create his/her own “perfect day” itinerary, highlighting and numbering points of interest to create a path for a prospective user, describing various stops, including photos. It all equates to being able to share life’s unforgettable moments with someone else and inspiring them to do the same.
The web platform is a comprehensive site, a “mother ship” if you will, while the mobile app is intended only to guide the user through the city by letting them search for “perfect day” itineraries created by others.

Despite the system’s beta being very recent, its potential as a content-driven advertising platform is undeniable. Thousands of people have already published their itineraries, covering a multitude of events and “perfect days” for both locals and tourists.
That’s exciting for us as well, but we all know Sibers did all the hard work :) Thank you for all the consistent dedication, flexibility and creativity you and the team have shown to bring this iteration through. I’m really proud of all your work and happy to have you. (March 2015)
I have greatly enjoyed working with Sibers and I am glad that I chose them. They were able to execute on every aspect of a complex web development project. I have chosen them to build our mobile app as well. Highly recommended. (April 2013)
