SpaceTracker was initially developed as an application for High Altitude Balloon experiments. SpaceTracker had it’s maiden flight 11/25/2011 when it was used running on an HTC Incredible 2. The flight was a success and the phone was successfully recovered.The application itself will allow you to setup your phone to take pictures at a specific interval as well as send out SMS messages at specific intervals with the phones current location, speed, and distance.After tracks/flights are recorded SpaceTracker can export the GPS data to a KML file to display the flight path in Google Earth.SpaceTracker is useful for not just High Altitude Balloon Experiments but can be used for sending your location while driving/running/biking to keep loved ones in the loop. Really the possible uses for the application are endless.To view photos from the applications maiden flight please visit http://runninghusky.com/spacepicsThis app has been tested on HTC Incredible 2, Motorola Droid X, and HTC EVO 3d. If you should run into any issues please let me know so I can help resolve them.Keywords: GPS, tracking, HAB, high altitude balloon, running, cycling, safety, location, awesome, pew pew laserbeams.
