What is Memotrips ?Memotrips is a French startup that is reinventing the travel diary by making it mobile, social and fun. It is the perfect solution that will accompany you in your pocket during your road trip, day after day, mile after mile.
How does it work?In concrete terms, Memotrips is a mobile application (Android and iOS) and a website that allows you to create your digital travel diary. Memotrips takes back the spirit of the travel blog while removing all of its inconveniences like the page layout, the necessity of having a PC and an internet connection, or the transfer of photos from one's smartphone to one's PC, etc.
From one side, the traveler is going to create their travel diary, then share it by inviting their friends and family to Memotrips or by directly sending the link to the travel diary by email, on Facebook, Whatsapp, etc. The driver is going to be able to add stages to each day of the trip, which correspond to a moment of the day, like a restaurant, a hotel or even a stop at a gas station to fill up the tank.
The traveler's most diligent friends and family can subscribe to the travel diary to be notified by push notification or email each time that the traveler adds a stage to their travel diary.
The traveler and their family can also stay in touch thanks to the comments that can be left on the travel diary, and thanks to the private messaging service integrated with the website and the mobile application.

The trip begins!
The traveler adds the first stage
At any moment the teacher can fill out their travel diary by adding stages to it via their Android or iOS smartphone, or via the website.
The mobile applications manage the offline mode, which means that an internet connection is not required for the teacher to add stages.
A stage is a moment of the day (a visit, a meal, etc.) defined by a title, description, location, time and date and eventually photos.
Friends and family subscribed to the travel diary are notified
As soon as a stage is entered and synced with Memotrips, friends and family are notified by email or push notification. They can then view the new stage and the photos, and leave a comment on them.
The traveler is notified with each new comment
As soon as a friend or family leaves a comment on the travel diary, the traveler is notified by email and by push notification. They can directly respond to them or use the internal messaging service for more confidentiality.
