The bbTracker is an easy to use application for recording position tracks on your iOS device (all iPhones and iPads).

Recording is started by simply pressing the record button, and the recorded positions will be stored in a track. Multiple tracks can be recorded and shown on the same map, and various functionality may be performed on them including labelling, hiding, deleting and displaying details like speed/altitude curves and statistics.

NOTE: The app continues to run in the background if closed while recording is active, and uses notifications to update the user on the progress. Navigation consumes more battery than normal, and it is highly recommended to enable notifications for this app to detect if it is unintentionally running in the background.

The app has a multitude of usages, for example:

* Store tracks to keep record of your travels, training schedule, where you have been walking, driving etc.
* Show others the best route to get to your house, a restaurant, the airport etc.
* Show others what exercise routes you take
* Record positions when taking taxi in unfamiliar cities to ensure you are not taking the long route (track can be used as evidence in case of arguments)
* Record tracks to ease finding your way back to your car, hotel etc. in for example unfamiliar areas, large cities or large parking lots.

For a full description of functionality and usage, please refer to

What's New

Version 1.0.1

- Fix crash related to failing to load maps.
The app crashed sometimes when logging a failed to load map error, and this fix stops the app from crashing (the map will just go blank). The fail to load map may be related to missing network connection or a problem connecting to the Apple map server (http error 410). The underlying problem is a Swift/MapKit issue that hopefully will be fixed soon by Apple.
