HipGeo Expands Reach

Fullerton-based HipGeo, the startup developer of a mobile app for tracking a user's travels, said today that the firm is now seeing posts from 125 countries and over 4,864 cities on its app. The company's app, which is free, runs on the iPhone and allows users to post information about their travels, document their movements, share photos, and more.
