If your favorite mapping, photo-sharing, and playlist maker had a love child, it would be the Visa Memory Mapper.
Record your comings and goings, offbeat experiments and various sundry activities/items of interest for posterity - or simply for your viewing pleasure - with this new app, which allows you to upload your photos and videos and set them to your top choice of a wide library of music. Better yet, it'll weave in all the geographic details you input thanks to Google Maps satellite technology. Think of it as a graphic novel on steroids!
When the masterpiece is complete, share your stuff on your Facebook wall, tweet to your followers, or email to friends and family, and encourage your friends to explore the photojournalistic possibilities at the Visa Facebook page. Bonus: from now until October 31st, use your Visa card (no purchase necessary) and you'll be automatically entered to win $100,000 toward the trip of a lifetime. How's that for an All Hallow's Eve gift?
