Global Flyer


Round the world non stop in a hot air balloon certainly isn’t my idea of fun. However a smartphone app written in Compact Framework 2.0 that tracks the balloons progress in real-time is a bit more like it!

Conchango are sponsoring the Virgin Atlantic Global Challenge this year and Keni Barwick has posted a Windows Mobile app (PPC and Smartphone) that lets you track their progress.

Check Keni’s blog out here.
