Hey guys! I'm Koen, one of the founders of Polarsteps. We're 4 enthusiastic adventurers with a passion for travel, design and code. Last year we launched Polarsteps for iPhone (https://www.producthunt.com/tech...), and this week is our Android release. For those interested in what a trip tracked with Polarsteps looks like, here's an epic example: Amsterdam to Cape Town on a motorbike - https://www.polarsteps.com/niek/... The first idea for Polarsteps came from our co-founder Niek, who made a transatlantic sailing trip from France to the Carribean a few years ago. He took a GPS-device with him to track his route and published updates on a website by sending his coordinates to a server through a satellite phone. His site went viral among backpackers and overlanders, who all loved the concept of telling your story on a map. Next prototypes were tested on an overland trip from the Netherlands to Mongolia in a Jeep Cherokee and a trip on a motorbike from Amsterdam to Cape Town. Based on the lessons learned we built an iPhone app that was launched last year, and today we’re releasing on Android. The core vision – telling travel stories on a beautiful map – always remained the same. Looking forward to your feedback on our Android version, and thanks for your votes! :) Koen
