Recording favorite places with HTC Footprints

HTC Footprints™ provides an easy way to record your favorite places and revisit those places. You can take a photo of a location such as a restaurant or sightseeing spot and store it together with its precise GPS location, street address, phone number, and more.

The next time you want to visit the same place, just open the footprint. You can then view the location on the map, search for it on the Web, and more.

Adding a location as a footprint

  1. Search for the destination you want to go to.
  2. Tap > Save to Footprints.
  3. Enter a name and other details for the footprint.
  4. You can:
    • Tap to take a picture and add it as a photo for the footprint.
    • Tap the My notes text box to add a note for the footprint.
  5. Tap Save.

Revisiting a footprint
