TripAdvisor : Launches Travel Timeline on Mobile App

11/24/2015 | 12:08pm US/Eastern

(GlobeNewswire) - TripAdvisor, the worlds largest travel site*, today launched a Travel Timeline feature for its mobile app that helps travelers conveniently log and share experiences from their trips. Once activated, the feature automatically creates a timeline of the places travelers have visited and the photos theyve taken at each location, which can be viewed in chronological order or as a route on a map. The timeline is private to the user on their TripAdvisor app, but travelers can edit their timeline and easily share it with family and friends.

Travel Timeline is a useful and valuable tool for chronicling travel experiences and conveniently capturing moments to remember, said Adam Medros, senior vice president, global product, TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor not only helps travelers plan and book their trips, but with Travel Timeline we help our community document and share them too.

How Travel Timeline WorksTo activate Travel Timeline, users log on to the TripAdvisor mobile app and opt-in to the feature. Once the feature is activated, it will keep a log of the points of interest that the user has visited in a running timeline, and travelers can easily rate and review hotels, restaurants, or attractions they visited. The feature uses the phones GPS and motion sensors to predict when the user is visiting somewhere or if they are just passing by. Users may turn Travel Timeline off at any time.

Travel Timeline Features:

Customizable: Users can curate the timeline and photos.

Offline: The feature logs activities without an Internet connection, helping travelers avoid data and roaming charges.

Private: Each travelers timeline and photos remain private to the user unless they choose to share them.

Shareable: Users can share a day in their timelines with family and friends.

Travel Timeline will be available through the free TripAdvisor mobile app only on iOS in 28 languages worldwide.
