When I travel to new places around the world I have to do a lot of research and planning. Then when it comes to looking back on those travels I hop on to my social media to look over the different albums I have uploaded from each different location. While all of the above is fine, it would be much better if there was an easier way to do it all! Maxplore is the answer, and I am glad I discovered this awesome new app they have created.

After trying out the free app on my iPhone I can definitely say that its something that every traveler needs – it has been designed for traveling the world and completing lots of different challenges. It’s such a good idea I wish I had found something like this a lot sooner because it would definitely have made my adventures a lot more fun! The fact that is was designed by a team of people who love to travel means that its perfect because they understand what the rest of us are looking for.

How can you get the app?

You can download the app here on the google store, it is available on both android and iOS. The great news is that its free!

So what is the app all about?

Once you download the Maxplore app, you will have your own virtual ‘scratch’ world map. So as you go to new countries you’ll see each country uncovered on the map. It makes it really easy to follow where you’ve visited and also easily look over the best photos you snapped from each location.

Then of course you have the great challenges you can choose to complete, I recommend you completing the challenges because you can actually win prizes! There’s a worldwide leaderboard on Maxplore, so you get to compete with fellow travellers from around the globe. You can choose to have fun by competing with your mates too. So, set up a private friend’s leaderboard and there will be loads of laughs as you all explore different parts of the world.

What are the challenges I hear you ask. Well, this is what makes planning your travel even more fun because the challenges help you to explore your destination more than you would do if you did your own research. Every country will have a long list of challenges that are available for you to complete, such as; activities to try, places to go, food to eat and much more. I love the challenges, now I know that when I go to a new destination I’ll never be in doubt of what to do or what to see – if I complete the list I can always hop on the app and find even more challenges.

What are the main features?

– Loads of challenges around the world. This means planning trips is a breeze.

– Keep up with friends and travel bloggers. It’s simple to follow what your favourite people are up to around the world on their travels.

– The Feed. You can stay in the know about what challenges have been completed recently.

– Interact with friends on the experiences they share.

– The Leaderboards. You can challenge people around the world or your close friends.

– The scratch map. Scratch away more of the map as you complete more of the globe.

– Key stats. Maxplore gives you some really cool statistics so you see things such as the percentage of the world that you’ve seen – the app allows you to do all of that.
