Thanks for the good times!

We are retiring The Cartographer.

We launched The Cartographer in November 2010, after nine months' development as we cruised up through Europe, using and refining the app as we went. It was our first app, and we watched with nervous anticipation as it went live on the App Store.

Shortly afterwards, Apple featured The Cartographer on the front page of the App Store – for nine consecutive weeks!

The Cartographer's had some good times since then, but it's time to let the old gal go.

I no longer have the resources to offer the dedicated support on which I pride myself, and have consequently decided to retire the app.
