Applications like Google Maps use geographical information to form a timeline that provides some information to users at a later date like where you were and how you got there. Trip Keep organizes these timelines into trips, to tell the stories of adventures by making use of the modern smartphone’s ability to log geolocational data. This allows users to remember and recommend their favourite places like, “that café they had lunch at in Naples”. Unlike applications like Swarm, there’s no longer the need to compulsively open your phone to check-in at every location.
Opting into Trip Keep’s location services automatically logs the places you visit on your trip ensuring there are no gaps in your adventure. While on a trip, users can use the application’s built in camera to take photographs that will instantly get added to their trip, as well as make use of Google Lens, allowing them to identify landmarks, find the name of the artist who made that sculpture in the Museum of Modern Art, or translate a menu in a restaurant in Peru. This integration will allow them to connect with the environment around them, demystifying and exploring new locations as if they had their own tour guide.
