SOTA Spotter

SOTA Spotter is an application written for devices running Android versions 4.4 (KITKAT) and above (like smartphones and tablets). What does it do, you may ask? Well, as the name suggests, it has to do with SOTA (Summits On The Air). It retrieves spots from sotawatch.org and displays them all on your device. It offers spot filtering and notifications, as well as the ability to send new spots. I hope it will prove to be a useful piece of software for both SOTA chasers and activators.
