I have recently received a couple of emails from travel agents who have said they have found Simply Declare the perfect perk to give to their customer to use on their upcoming trip. I loved the idea of Simply Declare being gifted to customers. The Travel App category is jammed packed with apps, and most travellers are downloading the “big” ones, but maybe overlooking smaller indie apps like Simply Declare. So it made me wonder how I can spread the word for other travel agents to get on board to share this handy indie app which is making filling out customs declarations forms a snap?
The Paid version of Simply Declare has been recently packed with features to make it more rounded travel app. There is a quick currency converter, which when you increase your currencies, has a very unique “favourites” list, but also works beautifully with the basic paid version. There are two types of “Notepad”. The first notepad can use as packing list or to-do list and you won’t use any data unless you chose to clear it. The second notepad is for making notes about specific items purchases. There is an in-app purchase for a history of trip, so when have completed your trip you can either clear the data or save it. This feature will be valuable if you had purchased an expensive item, and while carrying it on another foreign trip you have a record of when it was bought and previously declared. The Individual List feature is perfect for countries, like Canada, where the lists must be itemized by user. Don’t forget about the handy “receipt” feature allowing you to snap a picture of the receipt, and we have now allowed you to enlarge the picture just the touch of the hand.
Simply Declare is currently only in the iOS platform, and as it gets bigger and bigger, we are surely looking to turn it into other platforms. But, my call to arms is to Travel Agents from around the world to gift Simply Declare when you see your client have an iPad or iPhone. It’s a useful gift for your customer and a great way for your client to see your concern about how they will track their travel purchases. Simply Declare is one of those apps which most people didn’t know they needed until they got it, and now know they can’t travel without it.
