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.
