  • Great but missing a few key features

    I have been waiting for something like this for years. Excellent app. What’s missing: ability to export, so I could view/edit the content in google maps or elsewhere; ability to edit, so I could view with and without my road trips and flights, etc.
  • Great app and great support

    My wife and I have Fog of World and really enjoy it. GPS directions tell you where you are going. Fog of World tells you where you’ve been so that you can retrace your trip and memories. In addition, when I had a problem with the app the customer service was outstanding! Thank you Team Ollix.
  • No substantial updates is nonsense

    The developer looks like they finally understand. They’ve started to list specific changes. Time will tell if the updates are real. Developer response 9/13/2018 ************ "You gave us one star because we keep fixing bugs and improving the app? That's nonsense. Normal bluetooth connected GPS that is compatible with iOS should work out-of-box. However, if you bought a device that requires using their own SDK to make it work, that's impossible because there are maybe thousands of brands around the world. If you bought a big brand device, then we may consider it. You can always contact us through Facebook or Twitter listed in the app." ************ My response One star because the app used to work better and had more functionality. Your last 16 updates say “Full support for iOS and optimizes the app” SIXTEEN updates that say the same thing WITHOUT ANY SPECIFICS is nonsense. The GPS is a Garmin GLO. It can connect via Bluetooth. Previous review It keeps saying the app is being updated for iOS 11 but I don’t see any noticeable improvements. I’ve had this app for years. There should be a way the app can take location data from a Bluetooth connected gps for situations when the app can’t figure its location based on cell towers.

    This is a fun app - interesting to see how little of the world you travel in. I’ve been using it for over 5 years, and it’s fun seeing all the places I’ve been when I’ve traveled. Was updated irregularly for a while, but now receives regular updates. Highly recommended.
  • My favorite app

  • Very dissatisfied

    Functionality is lacking, requires constant location services and is extremely draining even on its most economical settings.
  • Frustrating

    I’ve had this for over a year and it consistently freezes up and quits, most frustrating. Just returned from a trip up the east coast and guess what? Diddly squat despite heeding the messages that it has stopped and my relaunching it. I have dots and lines cleared. I was hoping to clear a lot of the US on a near future drive across the country but looks like I’ll be looking for something else. My daughter’s roommate has had the same problem while my daughter has not. Is it my phone?!
  • Super Fun! But a few suggestions

    This app is super fun! I love seeing my progress and it forces me to take different roads and explore my own backyard more. It would be good if there were more badges that were country specific. Living in the US it would be fun to unlock badges by visiting more states or national parks. Also, I think there should be an option to make your track a bit thicker than the “thick” option.
