Time to get those legs moving. No, not to the gym, but to visit beaches, watch sunsets, rejuvenate, eat food from a menu you cannot read, shake off the work-related worries and heal stressed out relationships with your loved ones. There is only so much you can do at work. But there is a lot you can do with travel apps particularly if you are of the social media generation.
“Wish you were here!” won’t work anymore. Now, you can share your journeys and trips with pictures, social updates, blogs and videos. Make new travel memories with your friends and family and revisit them in your travel blogs. Find hidden gems recommended by other travelers or recommend that awesome travel spot that travel guides forget to mention.

If you log your jounreys and travels with photos, using Trevi will ensure that your photos take center stage. The photos will be organized according to the visited country, and the miles you have traveled will be calculated from the map.
Update your Facebook posts, Foursquare check-ins, tweets and Instagram photos like normal, and Jauntlet will collect them and map out your travels for you. You can also add to it by updating your travel blog.
Log on and snap a photo which comes with the location of where you are (this makes it great as a real-time journey log). Plus, you don’t have to duplicate your updates onto other social networks like Facebook or Twitter – just syndicate it.
