Stuck on Earth

04/17/12  |  Posted by Amber Luning  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

Stuck on Earth is an app that combines flickr's geotagging feature with an extensive and interactive map structure. It serves as a jumping off platform for planning photo hunting adventures, or sightseeing, or just virtual sightseeing. The cool thing about Stuck on Earth is that the places and tags you save remain accessible even without wifi. That comes in handy when trying to find the perfect spot to shoot a very old tree in the middle of sequoia national park. There is really so much to this ap; that I feel the need to take you through it visually. So I will. To start, first you tell the app your name, and it repeats it back to you in a slightly creepy robot voice. [caption id="attachment_3613" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="hello robot!"][/caption] You select your preferences based on... some sort of Jungian personality type I assume. For the sake of exploring the whole app, I am a daydreamer, explorer and a photographer! And this renaissance girl is zooming in on ohio, just to see what's around and how this app would affect everyday use. [caption id="attachment_3614" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="closer"][/caption] Here at university circle, you can see a bunch of photos sitting atop their tags. Photos of Lakeview Cemetary, of frat parties at Case, of the Hessler Street Fair. You can save these images in folders for future reference, future location scouting, or just to look at them again and smile. But this all was just exploring Cleveland. What if I wanted to take a trip to say... New Orleans? [caption id="attachment_3621" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="Oh yes, the Marigny awaits"][/caption] The photos I tagged in New Orleans, I put into a trip folder. [caption id="attachment_3618" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="NOLA, baby!"][/caption] This trip folder can be accessed and the tags read at literally any time, whether connected to the internet or not. This makes it convenient when I want to track down the bourbon street accordion girl and make her serenade me, but I don't have a wifi connection. [caption id="attachment_3620" align="alignnone" width="400" caption="the accordion, in its natural habitat"][/caption] This all culminates in having a self made travel guide that you can refer to offline. Saw an interesting bar? save it and it's on your map forever. Does the sunrise over the Louis Armstrong monument move you? Save it. Go there. You may be stuck on earth, but the earth is a very big and wonderful place to explore, photograph, and love. An additional feature of Stuck on Earth are curated lists. The lists of 50 things are fun to look at, whether it's the 50 best bridges, the 50 greatest dive bars, or something more localized and helpful like the top 50 spots to photograph in Yosemite National Park. You can download the lists as well, and have that as a nifty photographers guide. Stuck on Earth is a wonderful app that you can lose yourself in for hours. It can also be your best friend when traveling, and it says your name in a strange robot voice. I really can't think of anything wrong with it except that it doesn't also make hot chocolate. Also, it's free. So just go get it, it's completely worth it. Stuck on Earth is available for FREE at the App store
