TrackMyTour - Travel Sharing
By Christopher Meyer
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
TrackMyTour lets you create an online map of your journey for family and friends to follow along. Thousands of travellers have already used TrackMyTour to chronicle and share their vacations, business trips, bike tours, hikes, road trips, and boat cruises.
HOW IT WORKS
- Create a map and share the map link with your friends and family.
- Go travelling and add waypoints whenever you want to highlight a location or just say, "Here I am!" Waypoints can include text and a photo.
- Your friends and family can follow a breadcrumb trail of your tour by visiting the link you sent them.

TrackMyTour is not a real-time tracker, which saves battery power and keeps roaming costs at a minimum. Waypoints can also be saved offline when a network connection is not available, and submitted later when you're online (e.g., hotel WiFi).
- instant update notifications via push notifications
- automatic posting to Twitter and Facebook
- offline support when a network connection isn't available
- maps can be embedded in your blog or website
- follow other travellers and see their maps from within the app
- friends and family can leave comments on your maps
- sharing with e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook
- KML, CSV, and RSS export
- app languages in English, German, & French
- see the TrackMyTour FAQ at http://trackmytour.com/faq/
TrackMyTour is free to download and get started, and if you like it you can purchase an in-app upgrade to unlock additional features. Give it a try and happy touring!
