That is great news!
PocketEarth is my favorite application on my Phone! I have also lots of places saved on it and use it everyday since I moved to Taipei some months ago and am still exploring the city.
Its so good if u have a chance to find that tasty restaurant again, after discovering it somewhere in the urban jungle.
I have an iPhone 5 and wish to change to Android quite a while now but cant do that since i would lose this nice application..
Please keep us updated about the progress on the android app. Specially if there is some release schedule.
This is great news! I have several friends who use Android phones and tablets. They use other apps based on OpenStreetMaps and we would love to share our custom Pins among each other. Just a kind request to make the iOS and Android versions compatible with each other in terms of custom Groups and Pins, and the ability to Import/Export between them.
By the way, none of the Android apps come close to doing what Pocket Earth does. They are so jealous!
I’d like to know how long we have to wait for the Android version too. The only reason I keep an iPhone is for Pocket Earth…..it’s amazingly good for cycle touring in Europe….nothing matches the clear mapping and presentation of cycle routes….and I’m like a mobile encyclopaedia as I click on the wicopedia icons when riding!
……but I’d prefer to have a waterproof Android phone on my handlebars!
@twowheels: I’m using a casing from Lifeproof. They are really good and I suspect it protects the smartphone better than any waterproof Android phone. When I’m on a cycling trip I always leave the iPhone in the case, because it is slim enough to slide into your pocket. Also the – optional – handlebar mount is very handy, you need only one hand to mount and unmount it.
