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).

No news is good news

Happy New Year, everyone!

It's a bit longer between releases this time, because I've taken one of the biggest items off the TODO list and started working on it: attachments, pictures and videos!

This requires enhancements and changes to almost everything WB does, from the editor to the low-level HTTP implementation - because it turns out Android's default HTTP support has a hard time uploading large files.

So lots of code to write and things to test - it's taking a little while. :-)
