TrackRec 3.0 with GPX support is here!

3.o is a major update with new (much requested!) track export options: it is now possible to export tracks in GPX and CSV (raw) formats using the email function, and TrackRec now also stores timestamps, altitude and location accuracy with each location update.

In addition the UI and icons are refreshed. Enjoy!

Finally: TrackRec 2.1 is out!

Trackrec 2.1 with improved sharing options and important bugfixes is out!

Specifically, if you are on iOS 5 and have set up Twitter on your device (see Settings/Twitter), you can now tweet track and location URLs from within TrackRec. You can now also simply choose to copy URLs to the clipboard for easy use in other applications.

One of the more important bug fixes involve fixing a compatibility issue with the latest version of Google Earth. If your tracks didn't show up correctly there, try to re-export them from TrackRec 2.1 . Thanks Craig for spotting this problem!

A UI issue with the track re-naming dialog was also fixed.

TrackRec 2.0 updated for iOS4 is here!

TrackRec 2.0 is now available in the App store! Updated for iOS 4, using location background mode, it facilitates "always on" tracking. TrackRec will now continue tracking until you pause tracking and switch off location sharing (by depressing the cloud icon on the map view). You can verify weather TrackRec is tracking or not, by looking for the new little "compass icon" on the status bar at the top of the iPhone. It is visible whenever location services are in use.

Do also check out the new option in Settings (TrackRec's settings in the iPhone settings app... ). The new "Cell tower triggered" will disable the GPS and trigger location updates only when there are significant location changes. These updates are typically far less accurate than the GPS updates, but this mode might still come in handy for example if you want to have location sharing always on (without draining the battery).

While on the Settings topic: the old "Distance filter" setting wasn't really working as it should. That should be fixed now.

Track and location sharing hints

Remember to set a nick name in the TrackRec iPhone settings, and to name you tracks by 'editing' from the 'Track History' view. This will make the shared location and track web pages look better.

The TrackRec server scripts have now also been updated, so those who potential had problems uploading for the first time, should have their issues resolved.

TrackRec 1.2 with new track and location sharing is now avaliable!

TrackRec 1.2 with new track and location sharing functionality is now available in App store!

You can upload up to 10 tracks to the TrackRec web server, and share them with your friends. For each uploaded track, you will get a compact link, that you can send out to your friends, who can see the your track directly in their web browser.

V 1.2 also has real-time location sharing: tap the cloud icon on the map view, and you will similarly get a link that you can distribute. With this link, your friends can see where your are "live". To stop location sharing, tap the cloud again, and wait for the icon to go black. Your location is then no longer available on the server.

The web pages are optimized also for iPhone, so it should be just fine to send your track and location links also to other iPhone users that may (not yet) have TrackRec, such that they can view in Safari.
