This is a great app for tracking travel and keeping a travel diary. A few things that would make it better: captions on photos, preserve local time for steps, make it easier to edit waypoints. I use this to share my travels with friends, and an interesting experience occurred when I traveled to Norway and a friend was in Peru at the same time. Our travel stories intersected in an unexpected way! Would never have realized it without this app!

Absolutely tedious. Someone recommended an app called Been but it got awful reviews on Android so I checked this one out instead. They're not really at all similar. This app is so tedious to input your locations of travel. It insists on you compiling your entire trio and adds in travel lines from point to point. Also there doesn't seem to be a way to just have one map up that shows all the places you've traveled, but instead you have to open each trip. The app lacks intuitiveness.

I use this app for tracking where I've been. It's very useful and cool. Easy to use, intuitive. I haven't tried the more advanced features but based on how well the app works overall, I would expect them to work very well. I took one star off after my last trip because of the app's tendency to go to sleep for hours, leaving long straight lines that don't capture the detail of an otherwise complex route, which is unfortunate.
