Trip Route Page

Then proceed to add your planned Waypoints in the Waypoints Page.

Waypoints Page

On this page, you can search and add POIs to your Trip. Search can be via the Search bar, or via the set of Quick Search buttons.

Zoom, rotate or pan the map (with gestures) to achieve the required background for your story.


The Map has a Compass that appears when you pinch to rotate the map.

Pinching to zoom the map displays a distance scale.

The floating buttons on the map display area can be tucked away if you like it that way


Camping Supplies Page

Plan your hiking trip in advance, and add Camping Supplies to places (Waypoints) where you'd be needing these.

This page has the list of all the Camping Supplies you've planned for your trip.


On this page, choose to create a Camping Supply.

Each Camping Supply is associated to 1 Waypoint where it would be used. It has an expected date in the Trip when it would be used. It's associated with a category to keep your list informative. Mention the expected quantity to be tracked for availability (as well as return, if it's rented).


Mention a budgeted price that forms part of the Budget of your trip. Mention the actual price after collecting the supplies from gear shop. You can see the price comparison chart in the Summary of Supplies page.

When you plan for your trip, by default a supply would be marked as scheduled. If you already know some of the supplies as available, these can be marked as available. A Scheduled Supply can be marked as Available at a later point in time, on the Supplies list.

If a supply needs to be taken on rent, you can use the Received and Returned statuses.

The Availability and Returned Statuses are also summarized (for tracking) in related Charts, in the Supplies Status Page.

Illustrate Page

On this page, you can choose to create an Article.

This page is the entry point to both the canvases - Moments Canvas and Intelligent Shapes Canvas.

This page shows the story Articles you've written about your hiking trips. These articles are shown from the selected directory - the parent directory of the Active Article.

Active Article is the article that you've just created / the one you're currently editing.

Article File Page

A 3-level directory structure is created to help keep your Hiking Stories organized. This directory structure is accessible to you with your device's Files app, in the routespunktnotes folder.

On this page, you can add new directories at any of these 3 levels - Genre, Subject, Topic.
The drawing Article is always created at the Topic level.

When the Article PDFs are all done, you can choose to collate these into a single PDF (from an iPad).


Moments Canvas Page

On this page, you can illustrate and write your Hiking Story.


Have a sequenced Article name (set in the document directories pane on previous page), if your story will span multiple Article pages.


The Canvas supports 5x zooming and panning.

Floating panes that go partially beyond the boundaries of the screen will remain visible partially. Floating panes that go completely beyond the boundaries of the screen will become irretrievable.
To migrate to a lower size screen (e.g.: iPad to iPhone), you'd need to manually arrange the floating panes at the source screen, to fit into the destination screen.



In the canvas, you can:
- Add floating text panes to this area
- Add floating image panes to this area:
  -- A map snap of the route you travelled, can be placed in the foreground
  -- Pin your favorite trip-photos to the canvas
- Write your Hiking Story in your own handwriting
- Draw doodles in a specific area of the canvas. Move the floating panes around to create space
- Draw full page illustrations to capture the vivid memories of your Trip

Undo and redo are available for your hand (/pencil) drawn shapes and hand (/pencil) written text.

Use the Pen or Pencil tool to draw or sketch.

Use the eraser to erase regions or strokes.

Use the Lasso tool to select, then press-and-drag to move the drawn shapes around in the canvas.

Floating panes are different from the drawings.
You can move/rotate/stretch these panes.


Stretching to downscale is  NOT available for floating text pane.

Use the Delete button with caution, as things become irretrievable.

Use the dotted grid as a guide when you write / draw.

Draw straight lines with the Ruler tool.


Once you've completed your story, again save it (this goes to your iCloud drive, if enabled).
Then share as image to Social Media, or share as PDF via email!

Intelligent Shapes Available

PDF Intelligent Shapes Canvas Page

On the Moments Canvas, in an Article file, you can choose to handover the canvas - either with content, or in a blank state - to the PDF Intelligent Shapes Canvas.

Draw and pause with your Apple Pencil, and see this Canvas transform your freehand shape to a symmetric shape or a smooth-stroked shape.

Here're the shapes that are intelligently transformed:

1. Line

3. Rectangle

5. Pentagon

7. Ellipse

9. Star

11. Arrow

13. Cloud

15. Arc with arrow tip

2. Outlined arrow

4. Square

6. Circle

8. Triangle

10. Heart

12. Callout

14. Arc

16. Continuous lines at right angles

Illustrate your hiking story in a way that looks more Kawaii.
Or, if you prefer to present your story as a comic book, you can draw straight-lined storyboard frames in freehand.
Or, if you're planning your trip, create a day's, or a week's travel journaling spread with ease.

Saying Save on this Canvas saves it to a .pdf file.

[Unlike the Moments Canvas, this Canvas doesn't have new floating panels, or the sound effect of Pencil motion on canvas.]

If you stayed away from drawing because the shapes wouldn't look symmetric, the Intelligent Shapes Canvas is a new way to explore drawing!
