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!

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!!

Amazing App!

I can’t say enough about this app! I usually don’t write reviews. My husband and I are truckers traveling the country and I have a picture taking problem. 😂 I wanted an app to keep track of the states we’ve been in and the places we’ve seen. This app does just that. It keeps track of our movements and shows the journey on the map. It keeps logs of the places and times we’re been so I can go back and create a step with pictures and/or mark a restaurant or activity we did. I love being able to upload pictures in bulk. Not having a limit. I also love being able to create multiple albums and then the fact that this app will create a photo album for you! It’s amazing! It also keeps statistics on your trips and how much of the country and the world you’ve seen. It’s just all around incredible.
