Sharing your travel experiences with friends and family is part and parcel of every trip. Yet, the frustration of browsing through countless digital images that fail to capture and convey the holiday experience is all too familiar. TrekinU, intends to change all of this and more.
TrekinU is a unique Web 2.0 offering designed to discover, relive and share travel experiences. Aimed at travelers of all ages, TrekinU facilitates the creation of an online multimedia travel album in a matter of minutes. Utilizing GPS data, Google maps, music and editing tools, TrekinU transforms User-Generated Content (UGC) into vivid memories and experiences. Following its recent beta testing, TrekinU is now open to the general public.
The service includes a unique custom-built player that synthesizes diverse content into a single integrated web production. With a host of advanced features, the TrekinU Player includes a picture gallery, music, an interactive map including zoom control, and a choice between map view and satellite images. TrekinU also provides its users with the option of embedding their travel albums into their web sites or blogs.
TrekinU provides a broad range of utilities for building an online travel album. The application automatically extracts the time stamp information from digital pictures and arranges them chronologically. A geotagging utility similarly places the pictures on the map at the exact location at which they were taken. In both cases, a manual override option is available.
As part of their service, TrekinU has created networking features, aiming to become the ultimate online venue where voyagers and spectators gather to cherish special moments and journeys. TrekinU allows the user to rate treks, invite friends and family to share in their creations, and choose a desired privacy level. TrekinU will soon be fully integrated with Facebook, so that users can include their travel albums as part of their profile, easily sharing them with their Facebook friends.
Commenting on the release of the service, Amir Kleinstern, Founder and CEO - and a confirmed travel bug - said, "Today's traveler has a number of very powerful tools at his disposal, from personal navigation devices to digital cameras and smartphones. TrekinU seamlessly integrates all of the available tools and content into a single multimedia travel album, forever capturing those unique holiday moments."
