Whether you are taking a trip to your local museum or a trip around the world, there will be moments that you’ll want to remember. Trip Pages from Studeo410 lets you capture that moment with a picture, a note and relevant location information.
The first thing I noticed about Trip Pages is its pleasing, yet technical looking interface. The app launches with a screen that shows a compass with your heading, GPS co-ordinates, speed and weather. It even displays your elevation based on your GPS location.
At the bottom of the screen, there’s buttons to display your location on a map, take a picture, and view your library of saved locations, which the app calls “pages.” Each page stores your GPS co-ordinates, along with a picture and a note that describes the event you want to save. It also records the date and time.
You can organize your pages into folders and upload them to Dropbox for long-term storage or share them with friends and family via email, Twitter or Facebook. You can also view the saved locations on a map and see how it compares to your current location.
Trip Pages is a wonderful app for travelers, wanderers and anyone else who wants to mark and remember their location. I don’t travel much, but I plan to use Trip Pages to help mark trees and landmarks in our woods where I setup my trail cams. I should be able to retrieve the stored camera locations and find them pretty quickly. I also see myself using it when I encounter a new trailhead, fishing pond or local pizza joint that I want to remember.
Trip Pages is available for $1.99 from the iOS App Store. The compass part of the app works with iOS devices that have an magnetometer which includes the iPhone 3GS/4/4S. The compass will not work with the iPod Touch, the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G. Also, some of the features like weather require an active Internet connection.
