Since I had to look up that app to see what it was, I assume I can safely say no, I don't.   :138: 

Not clear to me what this does that isn't already included in that privacy busting app we call Google Android when you let them store and keep your location data.   :notsure:    And I am even less sure why you'd want that on your phone... :33:


Just because I am paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me...   :whistle:

I was looking for a way to record my trip and while I use Googlemaps for all my driving, I don't like (maybe I don't understand) how it records trips.
This app recorded my trip and I could insert pictures and comments on the locations I stopped at on the way. Simply and without too much fuss. I could also invite people to follow my trip where they have access to location, pictures and comments.
Unless I find a better way to do the above this will stay on my phone..... together with many other dubious app ;)

I used it on my trip to France last year and it was pretty good, my family liked seeing my progress at the end of each day and could see the photos I'd taken and read the comments, it did miss the odd step and sort of made up a straight line between start and finish points occasionally but overall for a free app it worked okay, I also bought a photo album from them at the end of my trip from them which was well produced and presented and was a nice physical memento, I was an early adopter so the album cost about 10 as I recall
