App is great, but i wish there was a way to add captions to photos or videos. That would add a lot, to the travel book too. Edit: I'm not sure how that feature is not on the roadmap! So many of my pictures or videos require proper context explained by a quick blurb (that can be tied to the picture, not in the summary). I do think it is an essential feature.

Hi Benjamin, thanks for your feedback! The feature to add a caption per photo or video is not on our roadmap, but it is on our list of ideas! Feedback like yours helps us prioritize new features better, so thanks for sharing your idea with us!

Now you MUST give your location access ALL the time. App won't work if you grant location permission only when app is in use. I don't want you tracking my every move. I want it on when I'm moving and off when I'm not. And you still can't remove a follow request. Edit: This POS turns location on automatically if you don't do it. Happens quite often. Signed, Jack

Hi Jack, thanks for your feedback! For Android we have 3 Travel Tracker modes: Ultra light, Balanced and High accuracy. You can also temporarily disable the Travel Tracker in your trip settings. Could you reach out to us at support@polarsteps.com and elaborate your feedback about the location settings a bit further? We'd love to have a closer look!

This app is fantastic I love being able to look back at all my adventures. I only wish I had it earlier. One feature I hope they add is the ability for you to upload a large group of photos, and it generates the steps from the geo locations of the photos. This is so I could add past trips from when I didn't have polar steps.
