A big trend that could fuel Everytrail’s growth is the spread of GPS into a wider range of devices, particularly mobile phones. This is partly because users will be able to upload their photos and thoughts in real-time, while on location, rather than having to wait to get back home.
“It’s very early now for GPS phones, as they’re just coming out,” says Joost. “But once they get more mainstream, they’ll be a great way to get location-specific information when users are at specific locations, and it’ll also make the process much easier to press the button to put their stuff on the website.”
