Endeavormore is meant to be used with the app and website. Both are similar but provide different experiences depending on what the user is currently doing. The app is intended to be used to record adventures.
My profile is seen here. Profiles include Current, Past, and Upcoming adventures. Profiles also contain icons describing activities the user enjoys. The icons show users what they have in common with others on the platform, making it easy to meet like-minded people.
Adventure Mode is a great tool with Endeavormore. Users are encouraged to use this while on an adventure. This way users are focused on their own adventure and don't receive distracting notifications. This was an intentional addition because I often find myself distracted by social media when I am trying to enjoy an experience. Turning Adventure Mode on allows users to use the app to document their adventure, but stay focused on what they are doing.
Users have three options to record their adventures: Videos, Photos, and Writing.
Each open within the corresponding app in the phone.
Once a user wants to upload their adventure to their profile they click on the upload icon on the bottom nav bar and this screen appears.
Users can then upload their recordings to their Current Adventures page, which is easy to access as it is on the bottom nav bar (the location icon). The app will only post to a user's current adventure, so when users want to add previous adventures to their profile that they did not record using the app they can do so on the website. The app's goal is to be used during an adventure as a tool to promote taking adventures and how to record them using the prompts as a guide. This way users are encouraged to record all aspects of the adventure – not just the glamorous parts!

My Past Adventure was going to hike and backpack in Steamboat Springs, CO. I explain what I did, what I liked, and what I didn't like here. The icons express what kinds of activities were involved – flying, camping, hiking, photography, filming, mountains, road trip, water, snow, and biking. Hashtags are also used to make activities more searchable in the search bar.
Scrolling down on my Past Adventures page I have photos and videos to click on.
For my Colorado trip I chose to record primarily with photography and videos. I recorded all aspects of my adventure: when I was excited, when I was tired, when I was doing something new for the first time, when I felt uncomfortable, when I was worried, when I doubted myself, when I accomplished something, and when I was inspired.
The feed page shows who you follow and their recent posts. Users can search people they want to follow using the search bar. Users can type in keywords to search for people and posts that use those words. For example, if I want to find other people who hike in Colorado, I could type "colorado," "mountains," and "hiking" into the search bar. For every user who has used #colorado #mountains and #hiking, their adventures will appear. I can then follow them or simply view their profiles and adventures.
