Great idea that I can not make work. I used Tr on my last trip. It beautifully record the trip, the pictures and the notes. Now I want to share the trip on Google maps and I have a trouble to upload the media along with the path. I do not see the snapshots on my phone it totally looks different. It said will sync on Google where and how? Haleluia on the end I gather the heng of it. I will say no less that is INCREDIBLY. YOU NO NEED ANYTHING ELSE TO KEEP AND SHARE YOUR TRAVEL MEMORY. If you have any questions just ask me. I will make you to love it.

Great App. Used on a recent trip to Barcelona. Would rate 5 stars if I could figure how to sync from phone to tablet. Sync completed, but devices do not seem to update each other.
