Today HipGeo, the trip journal app for iPhone and iPad, adds a tool that lets users record travel video and automatically geo-locate these video clips on maps and timelines, which can be shared on social networks like Facebook.
Call it SocialcamTumblrFoursquare. Or maybe “geo-casting” with a side of “mapamation.”
HipGeo aims to solve the problem of “digital media overwhelm” that faces many travelers when they return from a trip. A traveler can quickly rack up hundreds of photos and dozens of videos on a single trip, but it can take a long time to edit and organize these visual mementos for sharing.
