Here are a few observations:
The app works off GPS, so it does not require cell service, that’s a big plus for up here.
You can pause the trip anytime you want, if you stop for lunch, pause the app and then when you jump back on resume it.
You basically take pictures on the app as you drive thru your route. You can also do a short video clip, about 15 seconds or so. The app attaches your picture to the route as you travel thru. You can select which pictures and videos get loaded when you build the video at the end of the route.
I have found a few things: take more pictures that you think you need, you can always select what to attach when you build the video. The max speed on the video is pre populated based on GPS speed.
Next year, I’m gonna try to run one phone with the app and pause it at night, then resume each morning. I’m hoping that I can get the entire trip on one map, not sure if it will work, but going to give it a try. Then run another phone with the app for each day trip.
Overall, the thing works great and I really like it. I would not have an issue paying the few bucks a month for it. I can see it being a cool thing to do with the kids on the boardwalk at the beach, or at a theme park like Disney.
Here are a few links to the videos I built this week:

thanks, I appreciate it, I d loaed it today, and did a test run out to parsipanny and back to fairfield. one thing I noticed is that when you take a pic, you have to accept it or it does not store it. It does store them nicely in a seprate folder in gallery which is sweet.

average 60 m,ph, you were movin bud! that app is the coolest I've seen in a while, wonder what it would take to get it to overlay using snowmobile trail map as the base map with trail numbers listed?

As for average speed, we were hauling for quite a while, but I think 60mph average is a bit high. Not sure where you saw the 60mph average, at the end of each video, the highest I saw was 20 something? I figured we were running a 25-30 average. The trails were great, could not ask for much more.

the 60 average was Anthony coming back from Maine n his video. The app is slick enough, guess I',m just dreaming to do an overlay with the trails map.

did two videos over the weekend, they are posted in the cny section as that is where I was riding. Learned 3 things, make sure to "accept" hit ok, after each picture is taken or it won't embed the photo, Use the pause/ resume feature so as not to just kill your average speed while ya have lunch etc don't foget to resume after a break or you will miss a bit of your ride. and finally, don't bother taking pics in portrait mode, hold the phone sideways and take em all landscape that way they show up better when you view them.
you can of course view the trip video in full screen mode, but go back to non full and scroll through your pictures of the trip.
if I suggest anything to the app developer it would be to remove the step of accepting the pictures along the way, it is not needed and is just an extra step.
