Features and Improvements that have led to more than 500.000 Installations

A few weeks ago the 500.000th user has installed PhotoMap on his/her Android device! That’s awesome!!! Thank you for your interest and support!

A lot of great features have been added to PhotoMap within the last 15 months and there have been massive performance improvements. Within this post I would like to give a brief overview about the most important changes.

Please add a comment to this post if you think I should do that more often. πŸ˜‰
