Review Journeys & Notes

Kevin Vadala
7.6Good
Good design, fun idea
Not going to become viral
Journey & Notes for Android is a traveling app that encourages social interaction through a note system. The premise of the app involves users leaving behind notes for others to read about certain travel routes. I put that I traveled from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and it showed me that three other people had made the same journey. None of those lazy good-for-nothings left me a note, but I wasn’t so rude. I left a note that said “not a bad flight”. It wasn’t.
The premise of Journey & Notes acts out as simply as its name and idea. There really isn’t too much to the app because it relies on users to create a community and interact with each other.
With that in mind, the interface within Journey & Notes is very clean and organized and makes the app feel very new and elegant in a “travely” sort of way.You tap on “from” and then theres a path to “to”. Each to and from can have your spot inserted, and you can even pick your mode of transportation. There are a lot of options from airplanes, to skateboards. From the main screen, you can see a new journey that you can taken or your past journeys.
Journey & Notes is a cute app that takes the idea of a travel journal and makes it social. It also feels like a travel board in that you are leaving notes for others to read. I think it would be a great app if a lot of people start using it, but I’m not sure I can see that happening. There doesn’t seem to be much of a profile base to the app, or enhanced social integration to give notes and musings further social components. For example, it would be cool if you could take a users profile and look at their information (provided they give it) or message them. Then again, thats not really what the app is trying to do, so keep in mind when you download it that it is at its heart, a simple app with a niche idea that people may or not feel invested enough in.
