I have had a few guidebooks/apps in the works for some time now, but it doesn’t look like I will be able to get them finished in time for the 2015 season. So I have decided to make them available “as is” for free in the hopes that they serve some good use to all […]

Just a quick note to let the Android users know that: An update to the Camino Francés App is a few weeks away. Yipee! The remaining 5 apps, for the Primitivo, Finisterre, Aragonés, San Salvador, and Invierno routes will be published this month.
You may have noticed that several updates have started appearing on your devices. More are on their way. Over the winter I have endeavored to add alternative accommodation to the directory. This now means that when you are in the mood for a private room for the night you don’t have to look elsewhere for […]
During the writing of the Android version of the app I took the opportunity to redesign the whole thing. It was getting a bit too full of information to be fast and that needed to be fixed. It is now a much speedier guidebook, but you will still have to walk at your usual pace. […]
The android version of the guide apps are nearing publication and a few testers are needed to click for bugs. If you have an android device running version 4 or higher, and you have a google plus account, send me an email to sign up. firstname.lastname@example.org

For the interested, the hosting company that serves up the wisepilgrim data went offline for the better part of 40 hours. In so doing it exposed a dependency that broke the app when […]
[blox_row][blox_column width=”1/1″][blox_text animation=”none”] Now that version 1.3.3 is out in the wild, I thought it would be nice to keep you informed about what the future holds. Below is a list of new features awaiting future integration, in no particular order. If there is something you would like to see added, drop me a line […]
I have been hard at work building the Camino de Santiago app guides into something more useful than ever. The objective with 1.3.3 was to reduce clicks, making it easier and more intuitive to get to what you need. It was just released to apple for approval, and should hit your phone in less than […]
Exciting news, the newest version of all Camino de Santiago apps has been approved by Apple. Following up on the previous version, this one includes a heavy duty content update. The 2014 camino season is getting started, and most albergues (and hospitaleros) return to service this time of year. We have reached out to each […]
