Whilst we would surely all agree that travel diaries are fab mementoes of trips we’ve had and things we’ve done, very few of us actually ever get around to creating one. There’s the whole issue of time for a start. We never have enough of it! Then there’s the hassle of going through all the details that we’d want to record - from the journeys we’ve made through to the places we’ve visited and the things we’ve seen.
Now however thanks to our latest Startup of the Week, creating a travel journal has become an absolute doddle!
Esplorio is an innovative new iOS app which uses all the important details from your trips and in turn creates a fab digital travel journal.
It automatically maps out your routes via GPS, it checks you in to places that you visit and connects with any photos that you take along the way.
You have an accurate and detailed diary of your trip with hardly any effort required on your part!
What’s particularly good about Esplorio is the fact that it doesn’t require roaming data to record your journey and it also uses much less battery than other travel apps. Saving power is always a good thing, wouldn’t you agree?
Even better - if you’ve already been on a trip, it’s still not too late to use Esplorio. It integrates with the main social media channels and uses your past data - from Foursquare checkins to tweets and then it collates them into a trip journal.
In a way, Esplorio is almost the ultimate travel companion. It’s always around when you need, it remembers all the important stuff (long after you’ve forgotten) and it never disagrees with you over which bar or restaurant to go to!
If you’re about to embark on a trip soon, we reckon you ought to give it a try. And if you’re just back, why not see how it creates a record of the travel jaunts you’ve just made!
