App for Recording Places Visited


Recommended Posts



Can anyone suggest an Android app that I can use to input places I've visited?


I know there's quite a few but I need one that will allow me to input visits from years gone by.


I downloaded Swarm, which is perfect but doesn't seem to allow historical inputs.


Also tried Places Been but it didn't recognise specific places, like Disney World for example.

FourSquare/Swarm is absolutely your go-to here, but as you say - I don't think it supports historical entry.


You could use Google Maps, add places to a list?

Well, I went through a bunch and the closest one is an app called Polar Steps.


I ended up deleting Swarm, which is a shame as it would have been perfect.


Polar Steps is quite nice but geared to being social with other users and buying printed photo books. We print off a photo album of the year every year anyway so none of that really interests me.


It did make me think why bother though because if they close the app, that's it... all gone! But I don't really know if there's some sort of offline thing or print to PDF (but I guess nobody would print the books then!).


But it has a good stats section. Apparently (from the two limited trips I've put in so far under a dummy account), I've seen 2% of the world! I'm a nerd for stuff like that so think Polar Steps is staying.


Wonder if there's a way to connect it Google Maps though...

Shame Microsoft don't come up with something similar where you can choose if you want to blog or just input for personal use, then the app changes behaviours and options.
