Ever been on holiday and started reaching for your smartphone to look something up, only to remember it�s stuck on airplane mode because you don�t want to get stung with roaming charges? Or wondered what�s cool to do around the Airbnb apartment you rented in an outlying district of Paris, and wasted ages on the Wi-Fi trying to track down a decent place for dinner?
What Now?! is an iOS app for travellers that offers a neat workaround for the roaming smartphone killjoy problem, while also giving a helping hand to steer you through the local knowledge gap. What Now Travel, the London-based startup behind the app � which is launching on stage today, here at Disrupt Europe 2013 � was founded last year.
