Just download, give Esplorio location and photo access, and go - Esplorio updates itself and saves your travel footprints automatically.

Travelling abroad? No problem, Esplorio doesn't need roaming data coverage to build your journal - it'll just sync next time you get internet access. You can view your GPS track and previously synced data anytime.

Have an amazing trip you've shared with friends and family and want to hear what they think? With Esplorio they can now share the love by liking and commenting on the posts in your trip :)

Thanks to our unique Arc detection technology, Esplorio is the most battery-efficient of any all day tracking app for your paths without sacrificing any accuracy or detail.

We've tuned Esplorio for travel so the routes you take (even in cars, boats, and trains) will be recorded precisely, not just the rough directions. It works with jet skis and quad bikes too (we checked - not submarines though).

Find any place you’ve ever recorded on Esplorio or any of our other supported networks using the map with filters or free-text search. It’s the fastest way to share a place you love with a friend or be nostalgic about your travels on a world stage.

Don't speak the local language? No idea how to get some stamps? Got a great photo of you you want to send your grandma? Tap the … button next to any photo and send a real glossy postcard anywhere in the world in seconds using Apple pay or your credit/debit card!

Quickly adjust locations, times, and edit the photographs in your trips. Use TripIt integration to create trips and import flights from your itinerary. You can even add notes about each place and photograph, to further add to the narrative of your experience.

Add Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare, Twitter, Flickr, TripIt and Picasa to your Esplorio account to make your chronicle even richer. Use your integrated social accounts to recover past journeys.

Esplorio allows you to share tours, trips, or moments privately or to the networks you wish.

Use Siri to open your favourite trips simply by saying "Show me my [trip name] photos on Esplorio"

Get tracks of your trips in GPX with more options and formats coming soon!

Fantastic app for creating a travel journal

Researched various options and decided to go with Esplorio and haven’t been disappointed. Excellent support and regular updates adding useful new features and fixing bugs.

I have just returned from a 50 day trip through New Zealand and had Esplorio running 24/7. Recorded an accurate GPS track with no significant battery drain. Quick to add photos and content with simple and easy to use editing tools. Really well thought out app which should only get better. I kept my trip private while traveling (shared only with family and friends) and made it public after returning home.

Hi G Disney, Thanks so much for this amazing review and for contacting us separately too! You might be pleased to know that we're about to release a totally new way of curating and managing photos which we think will be the simplest but most powerful tool out there, which will be great for your next trip. Thanks also for sharing your trip publicly which is now showing on our Explore feature :-)

Great app with massive potential

Finding an good app that would combine diary, photos and mapping has been difficult. There are quite a few, but this definitely appears to be the one of best.
It looks really great; it pulled 5 years information from Tripit without problem and auto imported quickly. Sadly just the flights imported this time, but I suspect they are working on that.
There are other improvements on my wish list, but it's already magic and the more I use it the more I options I find.

Hi Robin, thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're so glad you're enjoying the combination of features Esplorio offers and the integrations. We will be adding to our TripIt integration in the future, watch this space :-) Do keep letting us know your wish list!

Sorry, I think it’s too hard

I don’t get it. I’ve just got back from a 4 day trip to Italy. The app didn’t know when I left though or when I came back - and divided the trip up into smaller chunks. This meant it didn’t show the whole trip on the map, so I had to change the trip dates to include the flights to and from the UK. Then I kept getting a “server error” message when trying to choose the photos. Finally, when I tried to share the trip, that didn’t work either and none of the people I sent the link to could see it. I’m sorry, I love the idea and the company seems great, but I found it much too disjointed and the opposite of automatic.

Hi there,

I'm very sorry you've been having a tough time with the app. We designed the app to make recording such experiences easy, not difficult, so I'd very much appreciate your help in understanding what went wrong (so we can fix it).

Could you please share the trip with us at so we can help sort the problem out?

Thank you,
Essa - Cofounder
