How to use it while traveling
Why I created My Place? A little story behind My Place.
I still remember my journey to Tokyo, Japanese that was fun. Unfortunately, I forgot where I have been after came back my home town even looking at those photos. I was only able to recall my memories of famous attractions, such as Mount Fuji, Disneyland and so on. I saw something interesting in somewhere and ate something delicious at some nice restaurants, Where are they exactly, I couldn't tell.
Because of this experience, I started to create the app named My Place for recording my current location and moving tracks. It doesn't only allow me to review a journey, but also allow me to plan my next journey.
Furthermore, I would use My Place not only for travelling aboard but as well as in my own country. Sometimes, I go to a place where I have never been before, I would record a track that I go from a train station to that place. Then, loading the track on map to direct me back to the train station when I need to go home.
In addition, I could save locations and routes manually prior my travel. So, I don't need to search a place with google map again and again.
I tried to use My Place to plan my journey to Osaka and used it while traveling in Osaka. It worked well for me. By using it, I didn't have any problems caused by finding ways Also, I recorded attractions while I was traveling. So, I could review the attractions for writing my blog entries and telling the locations of attractions accurately .
