What's this?

WhereBlogger is a tool for Android phones, for keeping a location-based journal.

WhereBlogger can automatically collect GPS points for you, or you can add them manually. When an internet connection is available, maps will be downloaded for each logged point, and you can annotate each point with a title and a longer description. The program aims to be kind to your phone's battery and does not require a data connection or switch the GPS on at random times, as both electricity and data can be scarce while traveling.

Everything recorded by WhereBlogger can be published online (to a blog of your choice), or exported to the SD-card and copied to your PC to use as you see fit.

You can download WhereBlogger from the Android market (or just view the listing here).

WhereBlogger 0.9.0

Version 0.9.0 is the first public release of WhereBlogger. The app should be available for free on the Android Market.

Highlights of this release:

  • GPS points can be logged automatically or manually.
  • For each GPS point, you can write a title and a longer description.
  • GPS data can be edited after the fact (although the UI needs work).
  • You can have multiple trips recorded, and copy points between trips.
  • Trips can be exported to the SD card as KML, JSON and HTML.


Feel free to post any questions or opinions you may have about this release as comments to this post, but note that I am still traveling around South America (currently in Ecuador), so it may take me a little while to reply.
