Are you a passionate traveler, ready to set off on your next travel adventure? Trip Journal is the ultimate travel app to track, record, document, and share your travels with friends and family.

We have a new and improved version of our award-winning travel app that makes it easier than ever to create a media-rich travelogue of your travel experiences and share them with friends and family.

In version 7.1, Trip Journal continues to offer you great features to create a memorable travelogue. But now it is also iOS 5 compatible and includes support for Retina Display so you can see your trips on the screen in vivid display like never before. You asked us to make Trip Journal simpler to use so we’ve also made it much easier to create trips and understand how to use Waypoints. We went to work on this request and now there is no need to navigate through multiple menus and screens -- you can create your trip with a few simple steps in one main screen. Waypoints are now called Places and it’s much clearer how to organize all the media and notes for the Places that you’ve add on the map in your trip journal.

Record Your Trip with GPS route tracking, and use automatic or manual positioning to add your favorite places and destinations. Trip Journal can automatically define your location and you can easily add geo-tagging to photos and videos.

Everyone loves travel photos and videos. You can add them to Trip Journal from your iPhone Photo Gallery or take them in Trip Journal. The photos and videos taken with Trip Journal are also saved in the iPhone Photo Gallery at full camera resolution and can be added to previously created Places you’ve added in your journal. Say you want to add some video of you trekking the last leg of your journey at the Great Wall of China. You’d never want to forget that moment. Trip Journal gives you two quality options for recorded video. All that adds up to plenty of great photos and videos of your trip that you can later send by email, connect to Facebook and share, or upload to Picasa, Flickr, or YouTube.

Maybe there are some special things you want to jot down to remember about a place you visited. You can write notes in the journal to describe your vacation experiences and you can add comments to photos and videos as well.

When you are ready to Share Your Trip, we’ve integrated Trip Journal with your favorite social networks and content sharing portals, including Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, YouTube, and Twitter, to bring you more interactivity than ever before.

With Google Earth integration, Trip Journal allows friends and family to easily see the route you traveled, the places you found most interesting, and full screen photos, videos, and comments about the places you visited. It even includes trip stats like the distance, time and geography you traveled.

What you get in the end with Trip Journal are one-of-a-kind travel journals handcrafted by you, rich with your travel experience and full of great travel memories captured for many years to come that you can share anytime and anywhere, with family and friends far or near.

Trip Journal runs on the iPad and on iPod touch, but it is not specifically designed for these devices. Location features (Track Route, Geo-tagging and Maps) are available only in Wi-Fi spots. You can add pictures and videos to your trips from the Photo Library.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Looks good but first app to need a manual


I read several very good reviews about this app (iTines and Times) and it seemed ideal. I do most of my posting to twitter and facebook while on the road. At first look at had a nice interface that was different to the normal and I like things that are quirky.
Having bought it I tried to use it on a recent visit to Paris. All started well until I tried to trace my journey and make comments on what happened rather than updating in real time. I could not find out how to do this. As a result after an hour or so of rather fruitless fiddling I gave up and have not launched the app since. This is the first iPhone app where I felt I needed a manual - and didn't have one. I kept on ending up in parts that I didn't understand and and the track route didn't seem to let me put in where I had been, only where I was.
Having found the home page I am looking to see if there is information on how to do things but generally very disappointing and made me wonder how much the reviewers had used it as opposed to just trying out the interface.

Updated Review (May 2011)


I'd said in my last review that the UI is unnecessarily complicated and not intuitive enough. Moreover I'm not a fan of the 'Jack Sparrow' type theme. IMHO I think the app would benefit from the exact opposite.. a slick futuristic but simplistic UI; These types cosmetics seem to give apps higher ratings in the app store.

However I do not underestimate the functionality of this app. In fact it's one of the most functional to date. I especially like the fact you can record both still and video images; one can turn off/on the track whilst still being able to place media and waypoints on the map. Export functionality is rather good too, however would be nice if one could embed their journeys in web blogs and webpages etc (like you can with EveryTrail which has excellent web support).

Conclusion: A very good Journey recording app and definitely worth 59p.

I use this to track my walks as I make my way around the coastline of Great Britain.


Pros: Cheap app. Easy to get started with. Like the ability to use GPS & incorporate photos and upload to Facebook. Like the stats - so I can tell how many miles I've walked. Tracking feature is nice but seems to eat-up the battery.

Cons: if the GPS positioning is a bit inaccurate, this can make a big error in my milage. I have - finally - figured out how to manually reposition waypoints, but this took me ages to figure out. Similarly, if there is a duff GPS position during tracking, this can seriously throw off milage.

Requests; can anything be done to make maps quicker to load? Can there be an audible warning if the GPS becomes inaccurate during tracking? Can we have a facility to pause the trip - e.g. during lunch breaks - so avoiding a poor looking walking speed!?
