GPS Log has a sister app Geospike, which is an old school social networking site, dubbted a “social travel journal”. You can share spikes from GPS Log with friends via Geospike. Here’s how: First, sign up to Geospike and sync from GPS Log. You may need to leave the app open to upload all the photos attached to your spikes.
