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 3.2.2
Fixed issues with new Flickr API
Great idea, poorly executed
Would be a very helpful app if it worked correctly: cannot create trips from manage trips section; when creating new trips from the add photo to trip section, the photo gets added supposedly, but when adding next photo the created trip is nowhere to be found. The location button also isn't clickable so you can't quickly find yourself on map. Also I don't understand why the app is limited to widescreen only and why photo pins disappear and reappear without rhyme or reason by a tiny adjustment of map view. Knowing where the photo is sourced would be helpful too as it seems they are taken from something like flickr, etc.?
If only it worked correctly...
The "follow" function never works for me. Every time I log back in the people I've chosen to follow are cleared out and I'm left following the same random person that I've "unfollowed" repeatedly. One of the complaints I'd heard from fellow photographers about this app was having to wade through the countless pics of people's backyard barbecues, selfies, and food snapshots; the follow function would help alleviate that problem if it actually worked. Great concept, beautiful interface, lousy execution.
5 stars all day long
I take photos for a hobby and this app has greatly improved my photo adventures.
I have used the app on several occasions and have found it very useful.
