It took a while for me to figure out the “Record” part of the contest (Contest Instructions are below) and therefore I didn’t really get to do much with “recommending”. However, I do allow you to view others tours by category! A note, only “tours” with more than 1 point are listed. I had a lot of “test” tours with 1 point (aka my non moving laptop) and didn’t want those to show up as tours.
The source for this project is available on GitHub and here are the readme contents:
This app was created in less than a day and allows you to record a “tour” via a mobile browser (Android and iPhone). You name the tour and select a category. Once you are finished with the tour, the tour is listed in the directory for others to view.

- Google App Engine for Java
