Bored with having to beat about the bush when attempting to spread envy with tales of your travels? Wish there was some way to advertise all aspects of your adventures in that ‘abroad’ with one easy app? Blimey, that’s a coincidence…
Okay, let’s deal with the elephant in the room first and foremost – no, they haven’t spelt ‘traveler’ wrong, as such, it’s just that they’re American and therefore clearly too lazy to use the correct number of ‘l’s; but, frankly, they’ve committed far worse offences against English than this – just look at how they spell/say aluminium! – so we’ll just move on. Right, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get back to the important business of exploring the excellence of this fully featured app assistant to being away.
Bringing together all the essential elements required in producing the most fact-packed journey journal possible, whether for posterity or even professionally, in one deliriously easy to use package, The Traveler integrates all your otherwise fragmented facts, from photos to short videos, sketches to audio clips, and tie it all together quickly with GPS location markers and paths courtesy of Google Maps, noting exact times and places photos were snapped or notes made.
Capable of letting you work on your sprawlingly titanic travelogue either on- or offline, once you’re happy with the final facts, figures, photos, sights and sounds of your virtually reconstructed voyage you can send it and save it with Google using Docs, Maps or Spreadsheets, and share it though the usual social media suspects, leaving no smartphone sightseeing stone unturned.
