TripAdvisor’s travel journal app is great for backpackers, but has it been surpassed by social media?
TravelPod is largely for backpackers. The concept is simple enough, with a dashboard hosting entirely separate blogs for each trip you go on – and write about. Just choose where you stayed and where you went; it’s all a bit like Facebook. And that’s its big problem.
‘Checking-in’ on TravelPod is a great idea – and something it has over other online/app travel journals – but since we have Facebook, it is redundant? It compile a real-time map of where you are and where you’ve been, and it even counts-up the countries you’ve visited, so maybe it does have a place. It even allows uploads from a phone’s camera roll (photo and video), though the design is basic; this is retro blogging with a modern facade.
