Hi,
I'm a metal detectorist from England, and a long term member of Detectorist.co.uk. I have recently developed a metal detectorists Android gps tracks and finds recording app. This is the app I couldn't find.. So I made it myself! I''ve called it Tect O Trak. I thought you might like to try it. This application allows the user to track their movements within a pre defined area. You can save and resume searches, add / revisit findspots and make detailed records. This is made by a detectorist for detectorists. There are no ads or any other nonsense.Please give it a try.:thumbup:

Cheers and good luck,
Wormslayer.

Thanks for your interest.

I hope to make an Iphone version one day.. This is not a commercial venture. I developed Tectotrak for myself, and I have an Android phone. Sorry. However, there is hope! If people like it and buy the full app, any money generated will be going towards developing the Iphone version. The fund is now standing at 14%. So it will happen eventually. Be sure to check back from time to time.

Good luck.

Wormslayer.

I anxiously await the Iphone version as well. Sounds like you are doing great things Worm. Thanks for sharing.

Fellow detectors, purchase the Android app!

I just tried buying your program but the dowload "stalls" when trying to make the payment!

@Songdog.

Hi,
Thanks for trying Tect O Trak :thumbup:

It must have been a temporary glitch with Google market. :( Sorry about that. Nothing to do with app I assure you.
Very annoying to hear about it though. Please try again. If there is still a problem let me know, and I will raise the issue with Google.

Happy hunting,

Wormslayer

There has been an update to Tect O Trak recently.

In the demo/light version. There is now full facebook integration, with the option to increase your number of saved areas by reccomending and rating the app. Sadly, it is also now ad supported :( This is because most people just want it for free, which is fine, but does not help in developing the app further. As it stands, there are over 400 happy users, but not one single person as rated it or left a comment! , I am as guilty of this as the next man of this. I've never commented or rated an app either! I knew at the outset that the numbers didn't stack up. This is a very specialised app. However, I was hoping for a bit more support within the user community. This hasn't materialised, so hence the ads. Sorry.

In the pro version (which is and always will be ad free) I have added a database import and export function. So your files will always be safe. (Assuming you do regular backups that is..:wink:) And also full facebook integration. This is optional. if you don't use facebook dont click the icon. Simples.. :smile:

There are still many things I can add to the app, such as historical map overlays, and I have an ace up my sleeve that will add a whole new dimension (and possibly a bit of fun if you're artistically inclined) to your searches. So watch this space!

Be lucky..

Wormslayer.

Just purchsed your app. I will let you know what I think. I went with the full version because I like to support developers.

A postcard from my travels showing Tect O Trak in action. It has really proved to be an excellent tool for maximising coverage.
