Microsoft quietly launched a new travel app called Outings. Microsoft Garage always brings apps with all new concept and phenomenal idea. In case if you don’t know Microsoft Garage is a separate division in company that let employees work on projects that often have no relation to their primary function within the company.

Whole new Outings app from Microsoft Garage is a handy guide for your next trip. Basically Outings allows you to search for any high quality travel stories for millions of places around the world from various travel blogs and diaries. The app provides information about outdoor adventures, historical sites, city life, kid-friendly activities, beautiful vistas, and hidden gems and more.

The app also let you save search results into buckets, and you can share them later on with your friends and family. They are adding more and more trip destinations regularly. Mostly the app includes content (images also) from Road Trippers, The Outdoor Project and The Outbound.

The home page or Discover feed shows places around the US. The Nearby feed works as you expect. The personalized feed allows you to keep track of all the places you already visited. The app is available for both iOS and Android.

Well of course, it appears the app is currently US-only, and not available internationally. Hopefully in upcoming months the app will be available globally. Till that stay tune to Insiders Arena for more updates. You can go ahead and download the Outings app on your Android phone via Google Play Store and on your iPhone via Apple Store from here.
