already i can add some small description in locus.


But for more detailed information (eg, clips, pictures and other dokuments) i use a PC-Software.

perhaps integrate with evernote


evernote notes have a location field


multiple pictures, voice recordings could be attached to single POI


evernote also syncs to PC

Neoaliphant:


Good point! I have been struggling over the years to share points, tracks and maps between my different devices. So far I have been using dropbox to store my exports and try to get things synchronised but it is a real pain.


An integration with Evernote or Springpad would really be the best approach. This would allow the sharing even with friends, would solve the limitation today of Locus in the formatting of the description of points and the impossibility of attaching more than pictures.

I stopped using locus POI for some purposes due to the lack of notes


To make aphoto POI, I curretly take geotagged photo, share it to evernote, add text notes etc. the location from the geotag automatically gets added to evernotes location field,when you click it this field,it opens up in locus or another map app.


The only problem is while you can share a location to evernote, it doesnt automatically update the location field.


Evernote has an atlas view that shows notes that have location fields.


It would be good of locus could do this,similar to the geotagged photos view.

Well... the Atlas function of Evernote is a good start but it does not work offline like Locus does. Besides it is not able to filter the points as Locus can. Besides the point alert of locus is something that Evernote will probably never do. Yet the notes of the points in Locus is really a pain. The formatting possibilities are rather limited and you cannot really share points as you can with Evernote.


I am currently trying to keep my points in Evernote and have an exporter that would generate a GPX for Locus with the points. In the URL of the point in locus I then put the Link to the Evernote note where I keep the text nicely formatted, with pictures and attachments and everything when I touch the Locus url. Will see if my exporter will work. Still struggling a bit with Evernote API though...


Fact is that a native integration of Evernote in Locus would be by far the best approach.

Good idea, I would be interested in how this pans out.

As I read this older discussion, it`s mainly about using "Evernote". This is anyway more on another topic.


Meanwhile, I added ability to attach voice (also ability to record directly in Locus), video or generally some file from card, to point.


Attaching is currently done in editing screen of waypoint, so it`s little bit long way (a lot of clicks). It`s also planned improvements.


New feature will be available in next 2.18.1 version.
