David The latest release of Traveler surely warrants a 5* rating. Accurately place (on a map) the photos you took while recording a path; but also (and this is the great part), accurately place geo-tagged photos on your map even if the photos were taken while not recording a path. The app does all that it's advertised to do; simple interface; and unlike most free apps, the developers provide fantastic service.

Pretty complete It will be 5 stars when the sync/export (please add dropbox) will include also paths and images.

Wants too much access to your Google account. EDIT: I got a fast and complete response to my email like none I ever got; author explained me the technical reasons and I tend to agree. 5 stars are not for the app itself but for the exceptional support - many paid apps could learn with him/them.
