The Traveler


Created at Ball State University, Traveler is a trip journal and digital sketchbook, designed for anyone who travels and wants to capture the experience in one seamless package.

The app is available for Android phones and tablets running Android 4.0 or above, with additional capabilities included for the Samsung Galaxy Note device line‐up.

Traveler features the integration of captured photos, short videos, drawn sketches, recorded audio files, quick location markers, and GPS tracking into a package that allows the user to organize information and media in an efficient and travel‐friendly interface. With Google Maps built into the app, users can retrace their steps, noting the locations where photos and other media assets were collected and the path traveled along the way. For an immersive, virtual experience with contextual 3D buildings, the path can be "played" back in Google Earth on the device.

For Samsung Galaxy Note devices, Traveler includes support for the S Pen to provide a sketching and drawing canvas for digital sketchbook capabilities.

Features include:
* Capture photos, videos and audio on your trip and a marker will be added to the map where they were created;
* Start, pause or stop a new recording, or add a marker from Android Wear;
* Capture photos with Google Glass and share with your trip;
* Record your path and replay using Google Earth;
* Send your paths to Google using Google Drive or Spreadsheets;
* Export paths to a file and import using your favorite map app or software;
* Share media with friends and family using your favorite social media apps;
* Work offline to record your trips no matter where your travels take you;
* Sketch and draw with a variety of brushes, tools and colors using the S Pen.

Ball State University students, faculty and staff can connect their university account for additional features, including:
* Ability to sync all content (trips, paths and media) to a server at the university for archival and transferring to other devices;
* Invite others to join a trip;
* Share photos and other media assets between travelers;
* Invite friends and family to view your travels on the Traveler web site - https://apps.bsu.edu/traveler

Can't import? Tried my best with this app, it looks quite good but every time I tried to upload a gpx or kml file from Google Earth all I got was an error message. Deleted it from my devices.

Guideline required, Restart Device, (1) Is there any video guide, unable to find in YouTube, trying to understand how to use the feature. (2) I'm using note3, somehow it automatically restart my device when I'm in the appd, twice after installed. (3) always stuck in the apps as non responsive while click on the ongoing trip.Would like to try further as still confused in using it. I guess this is a good apps since lonely planet recommending.

Only thing missing is functional merge feature If you want to record continuous path over many days, use pause, then start then pause and do not restart phone (lose battery juice). You can export data as well. First do backup and restore from The Trip app. Then connect to PC and access the backup folder that eis on your phobe from the PC. Thinking of playing soccer with phone on me and record my movement. Already jogged my neighborhood with app on. From an investment perspective, it fits will with GoPro.
