So I have downloaded both the Gibby app and the SWConnect app. I seem to have them both running and both seem able to track. I haven't actually tried making a track yet but will do a test walk tomorrow and see if I can get then to work. Lots if nice green lights in SWConnect and Gibby funding where I am etc.
My confusion comes from wondering which app to use to track?
Assuming I have both of them running in the background they can both track but only one can tracking at any one time.
Do I just need to run Gibby and it will automatically send data of the trac k i create to the Stopwalla website.
I'll be honest trying read all the various pages on an old iPhone 5 is not great and I need to switch to desktop and perhaps all will be clearer.
All I want to do is create a track for a forthcoming trip which will be a permanent log of our journey, with photos etc. and allow our family to see where we are and where we have been.
I can't help feeling I'm missing something obvious or over complicating the whole process.
Both apps should run independently of each other. This will allow you to test both and see which one you prefer. Running both will likely chew up a good amount of battery life, though. Both apps are very capable trackers and efficiently get locations into SpotWalla.
Once the device(s) are operational, you'll use SpotWalla to create trips, tracks, join location pages, etc.
And, yes, while SpotWalla.com is a responsive website, reading the documentation and poking around is easier with a bigger screen.
