Nokia Sports Tracker becomes a startup – Sports Tracking Technologies

1:21 AM Edited by Blony

The creators of Sports Tracker, one of Nokia’s most successful mobile applications, have decided to form a company of their own, called Sports Tracking Technologies Ltd.

Sports Tracking Technologies Ltd was announced as part of the Nokia Technopolis Innovation program, which has the purpose of converting “Nokia’s unused ideas and innovations into growth businesses through both founding new companies and by licensing them to selected Finnish ICT companies for further development and exploitation”.

Jussi Kaasinen and Ykä Huhtala are the core developers behind Sports Tracker. While Nokia isn’t directly involved in their new startup, the Finnish giant will be a client of Sports Tracking Technologies. The STT team is reportedly growing and working to bring enhanced features and “compatibility refinements for products and services which promise to remain wholly sports-centric.”

The official Sports Tracking Technologies website can be accessed at this address. Anyway, at the moment, the Sports Tracker app can still be downloaded from Nokia’s website.
