About the App and Me:
Hello, I'm Trey. I'm the guy that made this app.
I believe that one of the great purposes of life is to have as many awesome experiences as possible. To fill your life with stories -- this is a wonderful goal. To this end, I created this app very much for myself. I am a travel photographer, and I run a travel photography blog at StuckInCustoms.com . I've accidentally become an expert on travel photography over the past seven years, so I wanted to create an app that I honestly use ALL THE TIME to plan out my trips.
There is a big problem that this app solves for me, personally. I have limited time, and I want the best information about where to visit and what I will see, generally, when I get there. When most people look at travel guides, they simply look for the pretty pictures and think, "I want to go THERE." This takes that experience to the next order of magnitude, and makes it all extremely practical with Trip-Planning.
Even if you don't travel, you still want to find interesting places to see and experience within a short drive of your home. Or maybe there are hidden gems right in your very town that you've never discovered. Because our algorithm is a cool mix of crowdsourcing plus human-curated lists, you'll see some really good results.
All in One:
So, this is it, Stuck on Earth. You don't need to use multiple apps, webpages, and other resources to plan your trip. All the countries, cities, and rural areas of the world are in here (well, except North Korea) -- all in one place. Add photos to your trip, and they'll be available offline. Everything you need is right here in this app. Thanks, and enjoy!
What's New in Version 3.2.1
Improved Login panel on iPhone
Added "forgot my password" to login panel
Hey Trey's mom :) lol the app told me to say that :) love the voice, it's awesome, the 4 star is because the interface needs work. I would suggest bigger buttons so they are easily clickable. Also it needs to be a little more intuitive. And when you open an image, it's too messy. Make it simpler. All the data can be there still, just make it more accessible. But great idea! Looking forward to seeing it improve.
Taking up valuable storage
I removed this app because it was saving files to my ipad. I don't need this kind of app taking almost 1G of valuable storage space. Until there is a way to purge the cache I'm not using this app!
Buggy - Very Surprised
The iPhone app seems to be VERY buggy at release. Surprisingly it seems to have NOT been thoroughly tested by the SIC Team. I would have thought Trey was more of a perfectionist than this.
