Itchy feet? I know the feeling well and it's not because of poor personal hygiene. Sometimes it's just nice to get away from it all and discover new lands and cultures. It's not always as simple as that though which gives an app like TripColor a dual purpose.

For those unable to travel, it's an app that enables users to browse the blogs of people already on their journeys. Glorious photos can be added to keep everything about the app attractive to look at while a location function means it's easy to see the path a traveller has taken. Users can browse a variety of different travel blogs but the real benefit stems from keeping track of a friend or family member who's going on a trip of a lifetime.

That's where the other purpose comes into play. For the user who's planning a journey away, not only can they show others their journey but they can keep a diary of all their adventures to look back on at a later date. It's a pretty neat idea and clearly more fun than using an all purpose blogging tool, with the added benefit of being able to blog without an internet connection.

At the grand price of nothing, this is surely the ideal time to give a different kind of social blogging app a try?
