Travel Journal

I've been working with a startup called Rove, which uses your iphone to automatically create a travel journal of your trip. It remembers where you went, what you did, the pictures you took, and creates a beautiful timeline that you can share with family and friends.

Our first three customers came from our collective Facebook Graphs. We identified who the most prolific travelers of our friends, and created an exclusive "Rovers" Facebook group for them, where they could share their Rove feedback and experiences.
