Great App and Great Customer Service!

I love this App. Very easy to use and I like that you can set the privacy for private friends you invite to follow you or public.
I also like how it automatically tracks where you are automatically. Great to be able to look back at my trip notes and pictures. I just tried using their offer to make a photo book of my trip. The book turned out great and arrived quickly. Very cool that it summarizes your trip on the first page with a picture map of your full trip and shows a trip summary - #miles travelled, #days, #steps, #photos, furthest point from home, #countries travelled. Then each page of pictures shows date, weather temperature, and altitude for that days post. I highly recommend it. Also, I want to give a shout out to Steffany who personally answered every single email question I wrote to support and stuck with me to answer my questions in full detail. Great customer service!! Thank you for such a useful App!!

My favorite app!

I never write reviews for apps, but I have to for this one! It is by far my favorite app! I have been using it for a little over a year, and it’s been great all along! It’s super easy to navigate and keeps all my little fun tidbits about my travels for me. I also like that it manually tracks my trip. This way, even if I can’t update at that moment, family following me at home can keep up with where I’m at in the world! It also lets you write and submit steps along your journey even if you don’t have internet or phone data. It just posts it when you do connect! So useful when trying to stay on top of updating but missing constant WiFi. Also I love that you can order the books! I have ordered one for my most recent trip and it was so beautifully done and the pictures turned out great. I cannot recommend this app enough to people who like to travel and document it. It keeps people at home updated, and gives me a great record of my trip to look back on! I love it!

Love this app!!

I was an early adopter and have been using this app for years. We print a book every 6 months for a place to have all our adventures. The books themselves are great quality. The best part is I don’t have to sit down for hours to create a book. I simply add photos each day we do something. When 6 months is up I hit create book and pay. A few weeks later we have our memories. With so many memories on our phones there is no guarantee they will be around years to come. The book is great for all to page through. The only negative thing I can say is the app is a little glitchy when it comes time to print. I just no longer try to edit the photos once it is print time. Pro tip: only put photos in that you know you want in the book and don’t put it off until later to edit.
