There are many missing pieces in most of today’s travel apps. Camtinerary adds those pieces, and removes some that belong to a different puzzle.
Piece #1: Create an account and provide your email address.
This piece was removed, since you want to plan a trip, not hand over marketing information. The trips you plan are private, so you can make them as personal as you’d like.
Piece #2: Add map pins for the homes of your friends & family.
Many embark on trips to visit friends. Why not get to see a map that has a pin for the hotel where you’ll be staying, and one for your friends house? Camtinerary lets you do that.
Piece #3: Stay home.
Even if you don’t want to go anywhere or spend any money, you may want to make a map of your town or neighborhood. Pin your favorite and not-so-favorite spots, like that weaping willow you love to sit under or dead man’s curve.
Piece #4: You don’t know what you don’t know.
In Camtinerary, you can move the map to your current location and tap the restaurant, hotel, attraction and shopping buttons. The results consolidated from Yelp, Foursquare, Zomato will likely include places you do not know exist. If you know what you don’t know, at least you have choice in the matter.
Piece #5: Trip Library.
The Trip Library is a growing collection of trips taken by actual people. When your friend goes somewhere, you say, “That’s great! Where did you go when you went to Outer Mongolia?” Camtinerary gives you lots of answers to that question.
Five easy pieces. Because it’s hard to resist making a bad pun.

Everybody’s a Travel Agent
Browse and download detailed itineraries created by travelers the world over. Camtinerary downloads a copy of the trip you select so you can use it as a basis for your own. Think of it as your own customizable tour guide! If you’re proud of your creation, upload it to the Cloud Library to share it with other Camtinerary users.
Everybody’s got an Opinion
Camtinerary provides search results from sources like Yelp, Foursquare, Expedia, Tomato, and Michelib so you can compare reviews and see the highest rated together at the top of the search result list.
Walk or Drive?
Your itinerary shows the time it takes by car or by foot to get from place to place.
Depends on the Weather
As long as today is within 7 days of your trip, the weather forecast will appear and later for each day in your itinerary. Weather shows the conditions for every 3 hours. Within 16 days of your trip, you will see one condition indicator for the entire day.
The pins for search results and places in your itinerary are tagged with the name of the business so you don’t have to waste time tapping or looking up a number to cross reference. If a name is blocked, just pinch to zoom or rotate.
Instead of showing you just photos from members or from a hotel website, Camtinerary performs an image search of the entire web using the name and city as the search criteria. The result is a much wider range of photos than you would normally get, albeit somewhat un-curated! Street View shows you photos of the north, east, south and west exposures at the location using the Google service.
Swipe any place in your itinerary to the left, tap “More” and tap “Directions & Transit” and get this information using native Apple Maps or your preferred transit app such as Google Maps, Waze, CityMapper, The Transit App, Navigon or Yandex.
Tweets with Attitude
Use a 3D Touch on iPhone 6s or a long touch on everything else, then swipe up and tap “Read Tweets.” Tweets that involve the place are grouped by sentiment: positive, negative, neutral and ambivalent using IBM’s Insight for Twitter.
Privacy is the best Policy
Camtinerary does not require or even ask you to login, it does not track your search history and does not ask for your email address or any other personal information. When uploading your itineraries, enter a username that is unique to Camtinerary and cannot be traced to your identity. Your privacy is our top priority.
Camtinerary is available for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, Mac, and soon for Apple TV!
