PlanARoute is a great tool for creating driving, walking, cycling or point-to-point routes. More than directions from points A to B, PlanARoute gives you directions from points A to Z.

Use it to plan or record (using your photos) a tour or any other multi-stop journey.

Have you been on a journey, where you took many photos and would like to retrace your journey?  PlanARoute can retrace your route using the photos in your Camera Roll or any other photo with geolocation data on your device.  Also, you can view a full screen slideshow of all the photos that are attached to any pin location in your route.

Preserves your privacy by storing your information on your device, not on a website.

Works with or without an internet connection.

Download free sample routes that can be imported into your device by tapping on the Routes tab above.

RouteMyPhotos is another app that will display all the photos in a selected photo album or moment and calculate the cumulative distance between all the photos in that album.  No internet connection is required to use this app.  This is a quick way of recreating any journey you took and calculate the total distance traveled without running a battery draining GPS app on your device.

MapMyPhotos is a companion app which displays the creation date, time, elevation and locations of photos on your device.  These photos are displayed for any selected album or moment.
