    I'm a beginner - and in anticipation that we'll find lots of locations that we'll want to make a note of, I've been searching for an app or web site that might let us record this sort of thing. The nearest I've found to what I want is http://www.trip-journal.com but it's only available on iPhone or Android (we mostly use Windows Phone).

    We want to take pictures, and have their GPS automatically logged, make notes etc. and rate where we've been - then be able to look back on a map of where we've been. Do you do this already? How? Thanks.

    Don't know if this is any use to you but have you looked at the one note app on Windows phone, it seems to have a travel planner built in and it fits in with one drive for photos, only a suggestion , havnt tried it(y):)

    There are lots of travel planners out there but not really one that has hit the spot yet for us motorhomers.
    Rvlog (on android) is ok but a bit clunky..

    Would be interested to hear other views

    Hadn't considered OneNote - use it on desktop Windows - so I'll look at that further. RVLog seems to slightly miss the mark with its emphasis on winning "points" for logging things... whilst it would be good to share what we log, that wasn't the prime purpose. There do seem to be a lot of US-oriented RV trip planning apps, but most appear to be tailored for use only in the US and only available on iOS (presumably because that's where Apple is most popular) :(

    You might want to take a look at this review I did of RV Companion - neat app combining a number of useful features as well as being a travel journal.

    RV Companion has the right features.... but it appears to only have been written for iOS and I've just finally eradicated all Apple devices from the house :)

    Ah yes, you are right - iOS only.
