Travel means different things to different people. Some of us love nothing more than escaping for a tranquil recharge, while others want to fulfil a lifelong goal or be taken completely out of their comfort zone. Whatever the trip, taking notes and photos on everything you experience is the perfect way to remember that perfect getaway.
Yet carting pens, notebooks and camera equipment around is often a logistical nightmare. And what if you’re a keen blogger, eager to type up your adventures on your laptop when inspiration strikes? That’s another thing to pack. Before you become laden with extra baggage, let Polarsteps (ahem) step in.
Pack the app for your next great escape and you’ll be able to do everything – the note-taking, the photography, the sharing with followers – all at once.
Under the Trips section of your profile, you can add past, current or future trips. For past and current trips you can choose to enter them manually, or let the app create suggestions based on the locations of photos in your Camera Roll. Add notes, photos and dates for every trip and Polarsteps will construct a clear timeline of everything you’ve covered on the trip map.
The app is travel-friendly in every sense: it only consumes 4 per cent battery power for a full day thanks to its use of smart technology to determine your location – a blessing when you’re out and about with limited charging options.
And if you’re looking for travel inspo, check out the search tab where you can scour trips saved by the lively Polarsteps community. You’ll find top picks from the app’s editors, as well as collections and inspiring travellers. As you record more of your trips, you’ll build up a picture under the Statistics tab of your travel credentials, which in itself is a nice memento to look back on whenever you want to remind yourself of everywhere you’ve ventured to.
Finished planning your next trip? Polarsteps is the travel buddy you can’t leave the house without.
