We take hundreds of trips in our lifetime but few of us can remember beyond the last couple of them. Hoptale is a smart app that helps you create beautiful travel journals from your photos with integrated gallery, itinerary and map. Hoptale is also a community for real travelers to share and discover amazing journeys around the world.
Our name 'Hoptale' comes from two words, 'hop' and 'tale'. Tale means story but what does 'hop' mean? A 'hop' represents an activity or a stop on a trip. It could be eating at a restaurant, staying at a hotel, visiting a landmark, or even taking a train to go from A to B. Hops are the building blocks of a trip and the key elements of an itinerary. Hence, Hoptale means the stories of your hops around the world.
Explore trending and top-rated trips on our homepage. You can use the search bar on top to find trips for your specific interest or destination. Also check out the 'travel lists' (collections of trips) based on different travel interests.
If you like a trip, check out the other trips from the same author by clicking the author username or profile photo.
Inside each trip, a chronologically-organized gallery provides a quick visual overview. Every tile (photo or text) in the gallery is clickable to see further details. Above the gallery, you also have easy access to the key information of the trip such as itinerary, map, highlights, and journal.
If you want to save trips and places for future reference, you can create bookmark lists for those in our app.
Download the Hoptale app, sign up for an account, click on the big fat plus buttonin the bottom bar, and follow the screens from there on. We try to automate as much work as possible so you can turn your trip into a beautiful travel story in as little as 10 minutes. Check out a few tips on how to create a great travel story on Hoptale.
We currently do not support creating a trip on our website - pleaselet us knowif you would like us to add that feature.
Look for the share icon , usually located near trip title. Click on the share icon and select how you want to share the trip.
For your own published trips, we also provide customizable digital photobooks that you can download for FREE in PDF format and send to anyone as you like.
When you create a trip, the trip is completely private and you have the option to edit and add any information that we didn't automatically generate for you. You can publish your trip when you are done with all the editing. Once published, the trip can be viewed and searched publicly.
You can set any photos of a published trip to be private so only you can see them. We have also developed smart features to protect your privacy (for example, automatically detecting photos with faces and setting those to private if desired).
We have developed a comprehensive algorithm to rate trips based on a number of factors, such as the content quality and the social engagement.
If you follow the steps in our insider guide, that will give you a good start to creating a high-quality trip :).
Dyanmic gallery is a special feature only available in our app. You don't have to do any work! Our system automatically features the popular images with a larger tile size in your trip gallery.
If you don't see this feature in your trip, it could be because either you have too few photos or your trip has not been viewed enough times to determine which are the popular images.
