The World in a Day: View the World on Any Day in History’s gogoWidget


I came across this app on IndieGoGo. The idea is this: will be a photo archive of the world organized into days and locations so that users can see exactly what the world looked like on any given day at any given location. What if you could see what the world looked like on your birthday in 2010? What if you could see exactly what Times Square looked like on New Year’s Eve 2011 from the photos of 1,000 people that were there? What if you could visually track the changes of a location over the course of a year from the perspective of a local inhabitant? will deliver this power to the world and create a photographic timecapsule in the process. Each time a user submits a new photo they will select from a list of charities and organizations that they want to support. At the end of each month, whichever organization has received the most “support” from the community will receive a donation from the site, taken directly from the site’s revenue, so the better the site does the more we will be able to give back.

A Photo Travel App: 

As an additional bonus effort to stretch our efforts even further and provide even greater tools and resources to the travel and photography communities, they are planning to build and offer an amazing travel journal mobile app! This app will be called “TOAL: The Trip of a Lifetime” and it will allow users to “tell their story through the trips they have taken”.

Trip to Worlds

There are many ways to define the story of our lives. Often our stories are told through the relationships we make, the deeds we accomplish, and the legacy we leave behind. The TOAL app will give users a way to define their story in this way. This app will allow each user to create an interactive map chronicling all the places they have visited and documenting all of the trips they have taken. The user will be able to input all critical details for each documented trip such as places visited, photos, videos, voice notes, and more. Each trip and each entry will combine to create a journal of their lives and help to tell their story through travel. The user will be able to connect with friends, share their travel stories, and collaborate with travel mates. The TOAL app will be a tool to not only chronicle the user’s adventure but to also set goals and help the user see what’s missing from their story. In all TOAL can either be a personal tool that helps organize a user’s travel story or a social tool that helps them to share their story.

Here’s a video explaining more and a link to their IndieGoGo campaign and here’s more on their project.
