One can post images, videos and his current location to the server via SMS so that they can remain in touch with other teammates. In case the internet connectivity is not available the app stores the information locally into the device and sends across as soon the data connection is available. The users are also able to define if they only want the app to send across the data when they are in a Wi-Fi enabled area or they want the app to keep posting even in case of high roaming rates to the blog.
