Best Travel Journal App (Android), for me.
I enjoy travel a lot, and I design an App to capture my travel moments: something quick, intuitive and memorable.
I dislike doing a travel blog because it is tedious: I usually end up taking thousands of photos and writing pages of travel diary every night, and feeling dreadful to spend months organizing them when the trip is over.
I want something instant, like a Facebook and Twitter post. Social media is really good for sharing at the moment in time, but sadly the post will be “lost” over time, drowned by the latest feeds. I wanted a dedicated space to store my travel adventure, and also a place I can easily share my travel itinerary to friend in needs.
Whenever I visited a new place, I create a new moment: I select a place, and capture a few good photos. I want to enjoy the moment more rather than staring at my phone the whole time, so I leave the writing to be done at a later time (and rate how much I like it). The whole process took less than a minute, perfect!
This is not a traditional diary where we write it day by day, as there could be a handful of events and places we visited in a single travel day. There shall be many moments for my trip, something like Facebook and Twitter posts; I can share it on social media if I prefer, or maybe not.
Each post can be automatically tagged by location, so I can easily introduce Puchong (my usual hangout) eateries to my friend.
Make a journey
I usually create a Journey after the trip ends, where I can group my moments together: it shows all the places I been to on a daily basis, and it automatically generate my travel itinerary which I could easily share with my friends.

Travelopy is also good at travel discovery, showing interesting places around you (like Foursquare or TripAdvisor) for countries like Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan & South Korea.
Not everyone is comfortable sharing their travel story on the Internet, thus you can choose to keep it private on your phone without the need for signup.
