My Tracks when I was hiking a trail I’d never done before. There was a badly-marked split in the trail and I wasn’t sure which way I wanted to go – the long loop or the short one? The sign didn’t say! I didn’t know the terrain so I had no idea which to take. I set a wayfinder point in My Tracks so I could see right where I was when the trail split, and follow how long I’d been on the loop I chose in case I wasn’t sure whether to go back and try the other or push on to the end. Fortunately I didn’t have to turn around, but it was quite nice to know that if I had, I’d have known where to re-route myself.

8. What other member do you admire the most and why?

I think arvid is an excellent reviewer and curator. And anyone whose reviews really give information about using the app in question – not just “I like it” or “this app is bad” – you guys are awesome.

9. Do you have any URLs you’d like to share?

I’m on Twitter @sweetcrackers1 and I have a techie-tumblr of Android and WordPress stuff at

10. Anything else you’d like to share with the Appolicious audience?

Don’t be afraid to try a bunch of apps that SEEM to do the same thing – you can always uninstall what you don’t like. The Android Market is your friend. Other reviewers are your friends. There are tons of apps out there that have similar functions, give different ones a shot till you find the best fit for your needs… and then write a list telling everyone else what you’ve tried!
