So you only have to input that information, which is important for YOU. Everything you are not interested in you simply keep empty.

For the input of data no working network connection is necessary, that means you can use the app also being offline, e.g. when you are in a foreign country and you currently have no access to a cheap WLAN connection.
For local information the app supports you by an integrated country-specific database of locations. Currently this database consists of about 30.000 entries of worldwide locations. You simply choose the country and type in the leading characters of the city name. The tool then shows a list with matching locations and you can easily accept the desired entry for your input. This saves a lot of typing efforts. Because of the integrated data pool also this functionality is available when working offline, i.e. without network connection. Of course it also possible to input any own city name, if you prefer.
In most cases the tool can determine the matching geographical position by interpreting the input of an address (e.g. street and city). So you can navigate to your favorite places also in a map view. This matching also can be done subsequently, when a network connection necessary for using this service of Google is not available at the time of inputting the data.
When your smartphone supports localization services (e.g. by using the mobile network or by using GPS) you also can directly use your current position and assign it e.g. to a restaurant entry. You always can later on modify this position within the map view of the object.
With the note functionality you can gather any text and also voice notes. This is perfect e.g. when you are on the way and just get an idea or you watch something, for what you later want to have a memory hook. The app keeps track of the timestamp and your current position (when your smartphone supports this). So later on you can comprehend e.g. the course of a trip or of an extensive shopping tour. This is supported by a specific map view, within all notes with their position are shown. By simply touching an entry then you can look at the details or listen to a voice note you recorded before.
