  • Great idea for an app!

    By Sac1984
    This is one of my favorite apps. I love being able to see and record everywhere I go, and the achievements and levels are a lot of fun. I would have given five stars, but I think the app’s development has been a little slow. There are a lot of improvements and features (like the option to mark locations on the map) that would be nice to have, but the app doesn’t get updated a lot. Still, I wouldn’t give it up for the world and haven’t found anything else that does what this app does. I highly recommend this app for those on the go, both locally and internationally!

  • Best travel app ever created! 100/100

    Best travel map app I have ever used!!! I highly recommend paying the $4 for this app. Well worth it! There are no other apps like this at this time for all phone platforms. This app records all your tracks. Whether it's walking, driving, riding a train or flying on an airplane or sailing the seas; you will always be recording. The App runs in the background. You don't even need phone service or a service provider for this app to record tracks. I'm currently using an iphone 7 and I just leave it on and look back at all the places I have been. Each squiggly line has a memory behind it. If you are using any phone older than a iPhone 5, then your lines may cut out once in a while. That makes little gaps on your tracks. To avoid that, turn on airplane mode and the tracks will not be interrupted again. iPhone 5-8 the app works flawlessly. I've had this app 23 months and 2 weeks and I have traveled over 200,000 miles since buying this app. There are choices of map styles too. Lastly, once in a while, like after opening the app every 10-20 times. The record button turns gray on its own. That means it stops recording. Always check for that red button when opening the app. I give this app a perfect score 100/100!! Please buy and share your tracks on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter.

    In short, this is a game where the only way to earn points is to go places you haven't been before. If that sounds like fun to you, you'll love it. It’s a great way to remember your explorations. I frequently find myself showing friends new or interesting places I’ve been using the app.
  • Simple Design and Great for Road Trips

    This is an excellent app to have running in the background on a long road trip. If the app stops tracking your location, a notification is presented. The notification helps avoid a break in your tracking. However, even with this, during a recent road trip there are breaks in the tracking. A break in the tracking causes that area to stay foggy and I don’t get credit for those miles. Make sure you have your notifications enabled for this app. The Passport and Badges are nice features to help encourage traveling to new places. If you want to feel small, use the percentage of the world traveled. I just completed a 6806 mile road trip across the US and am at .00001549736468% world percent explored. I had an issue with syncing and found the feature not useful but the developer was quick to provide me support. I switched from using iCloud to Dropbox to sync and this has resolved my issue allowing me to see my map on my iPad and iPhone.

    Can not update to V2.0 from iPhone 5. Feel so sad. And v1.76 cannot export date to dropbox now. I will loss almost 1 year path record. Finally move all path to the new phone.

    I travel to at least four destinations world wide, and domestically, miles. This app simply is meant for people who are on vacation. It cannot keep up with the pace. I have been to Asia, the USA, in a couple of states, and three countries in Europe, all that in twenty days. However, this app has only recorded one city in Asia, one in Europe and does not even show the USA and I live there. This app needs a lot of improvement. I was glad to eventually keep track of my travel, I guess not, log books are still better than electronics. Sad but true.
  • Great Innovative and Fun app!
