What an Amazing Travel App!

PolarSteps! What an amazing app! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this app for keeping track of where we were on our latest cruise. The only bad news is how much data it takes to actually use this app. It tracks your location for every step you take and it does it in the background. The bad news is that it requires you to activate an international plan if you are traveling outside the U.S. Sometimes, it has difficulty using the tracking part of the operating system in iOS and registers the user as having taken a flight instead of cruising. Then when you get to the online part of the program, there isn't a way to change that portion of the trip. So, there are a few quirks. However, overall, it is a good program.

Yehess thanks for your enthusiasm about the app! If you want to delete inaccurate Travel Tracker lines or flight lines, then make sure you check out this article: https://support.polarsteps.com/article/125-how-can-i-delete-inaccurate-travel-tracker-steps-on-my-map. Also, an international plan is not needed! Because if you don’t have it the app will sync your data whenever you connect to WiFi again. Cheers!

Please fix !!!!

Real disappointing right now. So I have a lot of pictures that are still on my phone that I’ve put in this app that are NOT showing up on the map. They show as blank white dots on the map and when I click on them they display gray images as if no picture is there! It’s frustrating because it tells me there’s photos but won’t show them. :(

Do I have to manually go back and re-add all the stops and re-add all those photos? Cause I feel that’s the only way I can fix this which is horrible considering I’d have to sort through hundreds of pictures in my photo app and have to guess their correct location.

I thought it was maybe just me, but then when I go to view other peoples stories I follow I encounter the same error and am unable to see their photos as well. Most photos work but not all work. Why?!!!’
