Boston Globe writes about My Vacation

Elizabeth Plageman writing for the Boston Globe has covered some of the iPhone apps useful for documenting your trips, including My Vacation. The app was used during her family's road trip to Yellowstone Park. Here are some excerpts from the article In the wilderness and wired for convenience:

"One of the apps I liked best, dubbed My Vacation, allowed me to document the trip with daily iPhone journal entries and photos. Thanks to the phone’s GPS, the app automatically mapped where each photo was taken. That, coupled with the ability to add captions, meant that by the end of the trip my photos were already labeled and organized. No more mystery shots.

Another plus: My Vacation allowed me to e-mail individual photos to family and friends and post them to my Twitter account (the caption became the Twitter text). After I got home, I realized that I could have posted my daily journal entries and associated photos to Facebook. Next time.

I did, however, take advantage of the app’s connection to Flickr, the photo-sharing website. I created a photo album and slideshow on Flickr that we have thoroughly enjoyed."

"We’ve been home for a few weeks now, but I’m still reaping the benefits of my electronic experiment. On the train home from work recently, I watched a slideshow of the trip through My Vacation, complete with journal entries scrolling down one side."
