● Why Fog of World?

• Fog of World is the first app that brings the fog of war idea into the real world map back in 2012 and provides free updates since then.
• Fog of World remains the best app to render the fog overlay and is the only app that shows you high-resolution tracks. Don't believe it? Download the copycat apps and compare the results with Fog of World screenshots.

• The database is designed to use as little storage as possible while providing high performance.
• Fog of World is the only app that truly works around the world since China uses the GCJ-02 coordinate system due to political reasons. Other copycats either work correctly in China or the rest of the world, but not both.

Great app that could some new features

This app has been around for years (I’ve been using it since 2017,) and the fact that it still works on modern OSes and models is a minor miracle and justifies it’s relatively high price tag. This app is great—it inspires me to go down streets I’ve never been in my hometown, travel via new methods, and when visiting a new place, helps me stay pleasantly lost, rather than hopelessly so. That said, its feature set hasn’t really changed in all those years, and given that this app is now a decade old, I think some new features would be warranted. Chiefly, I think there needs to be some “re-fog” option (say, at 5-10 years, or even an adjustable setting with the time frame of your choice) so you can see where you have been at one time, but not recently. Cities especially are constantly changing and I don’t think an area should always indefinitely look like it’s been explored—I don’t really want to impact my explored stats, mind you, but I do want to see where I haven’t been in a while (maybe implement it as an optional layer or onion-skinning feature, or a heat map view—the competing app World Uncovered has a feature to show how often you visit places, so that might be another way of doing it, although if you mostly track for new spots it would be of limited utility versus a fading mechanism.)

Great app - fantastic for exploration!

Please read the entire review! This app is great and one-of-a-kind: any similar apps in terms if tracking require a subscription fee that is simply not worth it. Yes, a $30 price is expensive at first, but it is absolutely worth it. As someone who travels VERY often, it’s so cool to be able to see everywhere I visit. I’ve been using the app for 6 months now, and can speak on its functionality. I would say the cons are as follows: phone battery drain will be noticeable (I lose ~10% through FOW on a 14 Pro Max), if you forget to load the app every once in a while tracking will stop, and it is difficult to remove unwanted tracks. However, it needs to be taken into account that this app is 15 years old (meaning it has a history and is unlikely to be deleted). Furthermore, there are external websites and tools to delete unwanted lines (or add if you want). At the end of the day, it comes down to this: if you are interested in seeing your map fill up, it’s worth it. Whenever I go for a drive, boat ride, or hike, I am always conscious of not only tracking potentially new lines, but exploring new places and seeing new sights! If you have $30 to spend, it’s better than any game you will ever play as an adult!

Amazing App, A Few Additions Needed!

I love this app and have been addicted for the past few months. I’ve been using programs on my computer to add past trips and it’s so much fun. I would love if a few more features were added, including regions of countries! For instance, I’d love to be able to see my explored area in square kilometers and percentage traveled in each of the 50 US states, Canadian provinces, Australian territories, etc.

A bit more detailed information about there you’ve been would be great, including a way to view a list of your top countries ranked from most-visited to least-visited, maybe a list of the cities you’ve traveled to (if you made it within city boundaries on the map, it would count on your list), and maybe an additional page on the app that has a general checklist of popular sights/attractions around the world - if you visit one, it would check off on your list.

I also would really appreciate a way to erase areas of your map - like an eraser tool or something. Many times I’m traveling and the GPS messes up and it’s very annoying having to import my tracks to my computer to fix them. More ways to fix/edit tracks would be awesome!!

All in all, an amazing app and I will continue using it for many years to come!!!
