    I find myself traveling out of my way to uncover more of the world. I’ve gotten familiar with my neck of the woods, too.

    Plus with KML data from flights it looks really good.
  • Just wish it would open at startup

    Or at least give users the option to set it up that way. I know that Apple is tracking my every movement at all times anyway, so I might as well be able to decide to get the achievements for driving near landmarks even if I’ve forgotten to load the app, or I’m too busy, or whatever. Other than that, though, this app keeps it simple and nails almost everything else it sets out to accomplish. And at least when it does crash, it sends a push notification to the user to let us know, which is apparently too much to expect from its competitors.

    Been using it for years and love being able to see the places I’ve been. It helps me remember my travels when I look back over my maps. I have had one small issue with the import function however. I saved the data as .gpx files and put it in the correct google drive folder and was able to successfully import it into the program (the little green checkboxes appear), but the amount of the world that I have travelled hasn’t changed and the cleared “lines” haven’t been added to the fog either. I checked the .gpx file on a separate .gpx viewer and it seemed to work perfectly so I think the file is fine. Sorry for posting this here, I didn’t see a link to email app support.

    Because it's so fun to unlock all the travels you ever had! And remember, wherever you go, there you are! Update: so after using this app for years now I’ve hit level 233. Not much has changed for this app in that time, but very stable and accurate GPS tracker that has Dropbox backup support and even ways to import trips from google maps. Highly advise giving this one a try and a final tip, change the view of the map to shadowed out dark. Developers (perhaps): make a standalone US version with trophies/levels etc for the 50 States...!
  • I like it a lot

    Been using this app daily for about 5 years now for all of my travels as well as daily outings. I treat it like a game and use it to challenge myself to walk down a road I’ve never been on, travel to a different part of a city that I may not have thought of before, or find my way back from a hike. The amazing part is you feel like you’ve already seen so much but when you look at the world percentage that you’ve actually visited or the countries that you haven’t been to you realize there’s so much more to see. In the beginning it really sucked the life out of your battery but the latest version seems to not be so bad. If you enjoy traveling and seeing new areas get this.
  • I Love Fog of World!

    I’ve been using it for several years now and I do quite a bit of traveling around the US. I truly love being able to look back at my tracks that I’ve left. I’ve even been slowly adding stuff that was prior to the release of the first version of the app! I hope Fog of World is maintained for a great many years in the future. Thanks!
