Vacation & Travel Journal

Vacation & Travel Journal


The Vacation Journal is a MajorForms android application that allows you to track and document your vacation or trip incorporating images, video, audio recordings, and/or text. It also allows you to track (with GPS) all or parts of your vacation/trip and enables the data to be synchronized to a free website created by you to store, edit, and/or share your trip with others. You can also allow family and friends to view your vacation during or after your trip by sharing it through your website, Facebook or Google+, Twitter, Linkedin, e-mail, etc. Once the vacation-trip is uploaded to your website, you can edit the data, create reports and/or maps, and download the data or reports to spreadsheets or other documents. You do not need to have access to the internet to run the application, but if you do, you can upload your data and preserve it. The vacation journal now automatically documents the weather for each event. Give it a try, it is free. Once your vacation is completed, you can automatically create a lasting video memory of your trip. Check out similar apps on www.majorforms.com.
Highlights:

Track your trip via constant GPS readings. Track unlimited paths within each vacation (for example, your vacation broken down into tracks for each day) and have each track/path displayed on a map in different colors.

Create events within your vacation documenting important historical sites visited, entertainment such as concerts, sporting events, operas, etc., the hotels where you stayed, details of tours, etc. Each event is marked along your GPS track(s) with a pin on Google maps allowing instant access to the media you have captured.

When an event is created it automatically documents the longitude, latitude, altitude, time, and date with instant access to the smartphone camera, audio recorder, notes, and a theodolite (for calculating distances to or elevation of objects) to further document event.

Each event comes with formatted fields to record a description of the event, detailed notes, temperature, and pressure. Specific fields can be hidden and an unlimited number of additional fields can be added.

Share your vacation instantaneously with your friends and family with the ability to post all your GPS tracks and media on any of an almost unlimited number of social websites or communicate information via e-mail, Skype, and other IM systems.

Create your own free website to share your vacation with others in real time. The website includes a gallery of your videos and images along with standard Google maps with tracks and pins representing events.

Don't worry about the loss of any media, data, or memories. The vacation journal application automatically synchronizes your data in the background in our database and, if desired, you website, effectively backing up your data for later use.

Once you return from your vacation, the memories collected can be downloaded to a spreadsheet, powerpoint, or other documents. You can also extensively filter the information to hone in on certain aspects of your vacation. Our reports section of the website allows you to create specialized documents and graphs from the filtered data.

If others are on your vacation with you, they can add their own events, media and data, through their smartphones or tablets, to each event if you choose to share your username with them. All smartphones and tablets will be instantaneously updated with the shared information through the vacation journal application and include all the collected information on your website. Or each individual on the vacation can create their own account and website on MajorForms to document the trip themselves.

Make your own vacation video or powerpoint presentation automatically once you return to memorialize the vacation. With one click, the videos, maps, and images are integrated into a video timeline or a powerpoint presentation.

I love it, but where is the instruction manual I used this app for the first time on a six week long trip of a lifetime, to Europe and Russia, and Sochi Winter Olympics. But unfortunately couldn't share it with family and friends, because the website wasn't updating for me, and I couldn't work out how to use the GPS function, couldn't ( and still don't know how to) use the theodolite function, etc etc. Now, more than a month after my trip ended, I have worked a few more things out, and updated/uploaded changes to the website, and will now share it with friends and family. A great app, but difficult to use, unless you're a real tech guru. So, how about those instructions, so we can all learn how to use it.

Crashing I added a week (+) into the journal and cannot see my GPS pinpoints on my map without a crash. This app is NOT for beginners, it is difficult until you spend time with it. I personally would like to have the ability to add in entries from previous days, when I didn't have time to log them. I also was looking to log my trips not so much POI. Otherwise, seems to be ok for the advanced user.

Superb app, if you take the time to learn This is a travel application that logs your entire journey through gps points that are recorded at intervals you decide(to control battery usage) and you can watch your trip later on Google maps. You can add events on your journey and link them with pictures, videos etc then add your notes(write your travel diary) and several other nice details about your journey. Its drawback is that it takes time to learn this app, perhaps understandably considering this app's power, but the interface can still b improved

Retrospective logging features The app looks perfect for in-progress holiday logging. Unfortunately, I didn't have it ony recent trip and finding it very difficult to add locations retropectively as the GPS is the only way to do it. Also wish there was an option to include a website related to the event your recording.
