Sports Tracker Breaks Away From Nokia To Form Sports Tracking Technologies

Posted on 06:59 by SlipKoRnSaad

A few days ago Vaibhav from thesymbianblog pointed about Ovi Journeys, that was described as the evolution of the Sports Tracker application. On the same post, he received an anonymous comment pointing us to the Nokia Technopolis Innovation Mill, which revelaed that four new companies have been created through the Nokia Technopolis Innovation Mill IPR spinout and that a company called Sports Tracking Technologies Ltd was one of them.

This means is that the two member team of Jussi Kaasinen and Yk√§ Huhtala, the core developers behind the hugely successful Sports Tracker application have come together to start their own company Sports Tracking Technologies. This explains the apparent lack of development of the application and the subsequent stagnation. Nokia therefore is no longer directly behind the application but will turn into a client of the said company. The reasons for this lull, as explained by Jussi Kaasinen were intellectual property issues relating to the migration. We now also know that the team at STT has grown and is working on ‘feature enhancements and compatibility refinements for products and services which promise to remain wholly sports-centric‘.
