Gaia GPS v4.5 went on sale today. Anna and I started working on the app about 20 months ago, and little by little, it’s getting to be a really handy tool. Gaia is definitely the thing I am most proud of making in my entire life, and every time I use it on a hike, it makes me smile.
For this release, we did lots of scrub and polish, and we also overhauled the track/photo emailing functionality to use the native interface. We think people will like being able to compose their track export emails in the normal way, adjust the subject and body, plus this gives better options for sizing photos as they are exported. All in all, I think this is a very nice release.
We have a lot of big plans for the spring and summer. Over the next couple of releases, we’re going to continue to look for bugs, find things to speed up and tweak, and then we’ll have some big features rolling out starting in April or so. We have things like weather, friend-mapping, and offline back-up of track data in the works. Just in time too, because I’m itching for a long trip.
