Cr & eacute; ation points

The strength of TrackMyTour, is to be very fast to create a point on the map. Just take a photo, who will be geo-localized and dated, write a small text if desired and upload the point on the time or save this point to the poster when you will be connected to internet.

We can easily manually adjust the position and date if the tags are missing from picture.

When several points on the map, these are connected by a line and the ride takes shape. obviously, there will be more points, more representation of the route will be accurate.

One can create his card from the website of TrackMyTour and therefore TrackMyTour is also accessible to Android users from the website. The only advantage of being on iPhone, This is to prepare the points offline for the post once you're online again.

Limitations and Conclusion

Some problems...

  • display bugs on the website - the site is now complete overhaul
  • slowness problems finding the timezone when the internet connection is poor or nonexistent.

Some ideas for improvement ...

  • Add Comments on points rather than on the map
  • Add multiple photos at the same point

Conclusion

TrackMyTour is a great web application + iOS that thanks to its simplicity proves to be very efficient and quick to use. In my travels, I use it every day and it takes me very little time, it is a pleasure to use. My family and friends are also very happy to follow the journey through the photos and easily see the path.

  1. The bike with you I miss it already…but I'm with you closely track my turn to make up !

    Little question : es that leave you more photos on Instagram (thank you send me the link) ?
    Or you plan to put foremost on your site ?

    1. Thanks for the comment. For users of android, the only current solution, this would be to use the website which is quite practical and ergonomic, even on phone. The only limitation with respect to the iOS app, it is not able to save points offline.

  2. Oh yes this is as well to follow you in any way especially when we have more news and that he has had floods, a typhoon …or an earthquake or example… Not only that reassures but what a joy to read reviews as beautiful photos of lived And Travel…
