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 0.9.4

This will be the last release for a while, I am leaving Quito tomorrow to travel around Ecuador and make my way to Peru.

Updates:

  • Backup/restore now works and is documented.
  • Fixed most of the worst UI inconsistencies: trip list state is preserved while editing and the confusing double-tap/long-tap behavior is gone, instead there are nice buttons on the UI itself for the most common operations.
  • Minor bugfixes.


An example of the KML output generated by WhereBlogger may be seen here: these are my points and notes from our trip around the Galapagos Islands.
