How best to test a waterproof phone case than to record your phone getting dunked in a pond! Continue reading “Aquapac Test”
In the October 2010 issue of Countryfile Magazine there is an article reviewing some of the portable solar chargers available on the market. I am a heavy phone user whilst out hiking (thanks to Social Hiking), and the idea of a free source of power to keep my phone going is great, but is it actually practical?
Back in March I posted about an online route mapping and social media tool I had create to share our challenge of walking Offa’s Dyke with as many people as possible.
The app was a great success – we found we had a regular group of people following our progress and interacting with us (which really helped out motivation). We were also getting links to local information and history, met a friend of a follower who lived on the route, and most amazingly of all had a surprise visit from a friend who has tracked us down using the map on her iPhone.
After a fair bit of demand, I have finally got around to creating a publicly usable version of the app called Social Hiking.
