LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Have you ever returned from a great vacation and regretted not keeping better track of your trip for a photo album? This week’s App of the Week can help you avoid that regret in the future.

The PolarSteps app helps you chronicle your journeys and vacations so you’ll never forget how much fun you had.

Once you begin a trip, the app automatically tracks your journey—places you visit, routes you’ve traveled—even without being connected to the internet. Once you do connect to the internet, the app will update your profile with all your routes, locations and photos you’ve taken along the way.

Users can choose to keep their travel profile private, or allow friends and family to access it so they can follow along with your trip from home. You can also post to your social media accounts directly from the app.

Once you’ve returned home, look back at the stats the PolarSteps app tracked during your journey, from total distance traveled to every place you visited. When it’s all said and done, you can order a printed photo album of your trip with all the stats and notes you logged in the app throughout the journey, so you have a hard copy memento to remember it by.

So, if you could use an extra hand chronicling your next trip, check out the PolarSteps app today.

The PolarSteps app is available for free on iOS and Android devices.
