Would you recommend this product?
I also wish I could just pick countries not a square on the map.

@tkrones it seems a bit unfair if you only visited Moscow and then the app said you saw half of the landmass of the world... (which is Russia)... or you mean as an extra feature? Yeah the way it's designed is simple, and not based around how many countries but more on percentage (in pixels), which I like above the already existing ones doing countries.

But I will rephrase. The score is a nice idea. Unfortunately, navigating to find the squares you've been to is difficult, and the process of selecting squares is tedious for those who have travelled a lot. Improving the navigation and selection product would make this product much more useable, and thus useful.

@msitver great feedback. Would it help if every time you press a square it would force (i.e. by letting you wait for 5 secs haha) you to remember how it was to be there? :)

@sixside haha ;) Me myself would be interested in where I was, where I am now and where I am going next, as a semi-professional travel blogger I would love to visualize this, and offer this to other travelers as well.

@milann someone just needs to create a mashup of this plus the new Google Timeline feature. https://www.producthunt.com/tech... Seriously though, if Travel Score would allow for importing of KML files, that would get ya ~80% of the way!

@milann @soroushg_ Saving your progress for the next site visit is definitely the most requested feature. I'll make that my number one priority once I find time to continue working on the project

Sounds very similar to been app

@ekaterinaklink But that's countries as well? I like the pixels idea. Do you use the Been app?
Share
@milann @ekaterinaklink yeah, I do) it's very easy to use and I use to track the countries which I visited with it

Great concept. Poor execution. Having to choose where you've been one square at a time is really tedious. I'll stick to my TripAdvisor travel map for now.

@msitver Oh I thought this was a place for constructive feedback?

@milann and how was my feedback destructive rather than constructive? I don't sugarcoat things. The process of building a map was unnecessarily tedious, and in my opinion, that made this product unusable. You'll notice I said "for now" because this product is certainly fixable.

@msitver What if I would tell you the website you're writing for is tedious because after scrolling 10px down I get asked to sign up for email. I never ever would check your website, click any banner and disregard the content you're writing whatsoever. Focus on the great things, think of why it was build like that. Yeah of course it can be improved, but now it's just gone because you're already using another app, where you don't like to so I can't check it out. Ever heard of the shit sandwich? :) Yes this is a reverse shit sandwich. If you would focus more on unique content on your website (which it has) and less on stuffing your site full with banners and user retention hooks, i think you could really make a difference. Have a productive and awesome day!

What a cool idea, I love it. Can you search by, say, the city you visited, though? I want it to be accurate but I don;t know which squares apply to me. Also, it would be incredible if you could link this up to GPS or google maps and have it fill itself out automatically!

Agree with the others that this is tedious. Just gave it a shot. I wish I could search by country and by city then have it identify squares for me. Especially with some of the bigger countries... Great idea, hope you have improvements!
