“About a year after a student-developed application was first made, it is being put to the test on study abroad trips. The Traveler, a free Android app, enables users to track and add descriptions to where they took photos. The app was developed by Kyle Parker, senior software engineer for Developing Technologies. The Traveler is a digital sketchbook and trip journal, Parker said, built and designed with students in mind. As students travel, the app uses Google Maps to follow their path, showing them where they were at any point in the day.  . . “
