When we’re busy trotting the globe, journaling is just about the last thing on our to-do list. Thankfully, Polarsteps does it for us. All you have to do is tell it you’re on a trip, and it’ll track your miles, steps, countries visited, and more—and package it all together in a gorgeous, shareable timeline with your photos. ✈️🌅

The best I’ve tried

Like most people I enjoy taking (lots) of photos on my holidays but then end up with them saved in iPhoto which is like stuffing them into a shoe box. I tried a few alternative journal apps so as to give them some organisation and meaning but found they all had faults. Polarsteps doesn’t charge a subscription (yet), is easy to add steps and add photos to those steps and has a superior website for the desktop which is a lot easier to work with.
My only quibbles are; no dedicated iPad app; drag and drop would make photo attachments easier on the desktop; photos are displayed vertically on the desktop which means a lot of scrolling to get to the next step and the map never zooms in fully as I scroll. Minor stuff but irritating.
Overall I do recommend Polarsteps.

My first review ever, ever!

EDIT. Thank you to the developers for the reply. I’ve now found out how to add the steps it missed through your help and am changing my review of the app due to being mistaken and kindly being helped by you guys. I’m going to leave the other half still here incase anyone else has the problem. It is a good app and would be nice if I didn’t have to add them myself but all in all if I can add it with a couple of clicks on my phone I am more than happy. Thank you!

I’m currently backpacking around south east Asia and my friend recommended me this app as it keeps track of where you go and you can save it all, and that sounded really cool to me. It’s currently not tracked half of my trip so far! You can’t manually add anywhere if it does do this (not know exactly where you are or have been), I’m 80km from where it says I currently am. I had quite high hopes for this app as it seems to work fine for my friend but it is a serious let down to say the least. Would be good if they made an update where you could manually add places incase it doesn’t track you correctly so you can rectify it and it wouldn’t be an issue at all but by the end of my trip I doubt I’ll remember every place I have been and that’s a huge shame (that’s why this appeared to be a great idea).
