Who cares about iPhone? They're dropping marketshare.
Make one for Android and Windows Phone 7 :thumb:

Great. 1 down, 1 to go; Windows Phone 7
(1st or 2nd in 2015 according to major market analists like IDC and Gartner)

I just ran the app on my Android tablet (Samsung Tab 10.1) and it works great.
Even a route from the app directly in Navigon navigation software :thumb:

Two things come directly to mind:

1. Make the app also ready for horizontal/landscape use
2. Up the resolution. Especially for tablets

And you can change the header to "Free Apps for world's largest location database" now :wink:

changed the title!

More to come if some money comes in...not making any money with it, just producing costs!

Better :thumb:
I also received an update of the Android app yesterday.

Keep up the great work. It works great on my Samsung Tab 10.1. Only landscape missing.
Really like the combination with geo location GPS and maps.

I will spread the word about the app. Hopefully you will soon be able to make some money with the app.

Hi Toby,
I've posted my first pics on splocs @ http://locations.splocs.com/kitesurf/loc/anakao.html.
More will follow from my Madagascar trip. I've got 9 GB of them, but don't worry, I won't post them all ;-)
I'd appreciate if it was possible to select more than one picture at a time.
Also, is it possible to select which will be the "cover" picture for a given location. It looks they are picked randomly.
Cheers,
Alex (aka Sacha)

yes, they show random...

I don't think it is possible with apps to upload more than one pic at a time?

Thx for all pictures you are adding...really important that everyone helps to grow this database...better for all of us!
