Story Behind WMI

My name is Roman. I am one of the co-founders of Where M I, along with Michael, the technical guru behind this awesome service.

I am a keen runner and for my sins I secured a place to run the Virgin London Marathon on 17 April 2011. It was my first Marathon, so I thought that apart from rigorous training and strict diet, I would also need a lot of support from my friends and family. I realized that it would be great to have them at every mile, or at least every other mile, not only cheering me up, but also lending me a supporting hand (with nuts and bananas) in a time of need.

As a smartphone-addict, my first point of search was the AppStore. I couldn't find any suitable iPhone or Android apps that would enable my friends to track my progress in real-time, so, together with Michael, we decided to create a service of our own, which would let people track runners, bikers, rally enthusiasts (and anyone who moves a lot) in real-time.

Lo and behold - in early April we had a pleasure of introducing our invaluable service to the wider world. Admittedly, it is still raw and as geeks love to call it - the service is in BETA, but we are working on it and it will get better. We've got super-duper, incredibly ambitious plans for it and we do wholeheartedly believe that you'll love it.

Should you find any difficulties using the app, do not despair. Drop us a line to (wheremi(a) and we'll be happy to help. If you find any bugs, please do let us know and we'll try to fix them as soon as possible.

If you have any wicked suggestions as to how and where our app could potentially be used - please let us know. Turns out, our app is great not just for runners (or sportsmen), but there are many things you can do with it and we would love to hear from you.

Finally, we are working on the Android app and it will be coming out soon.

Thank you for visiting our web-site, for using our service and Keep Moving, Keep Sharing!


Yours truly,

Roman & Michael

P.S. If you are interested in what was my race result - I did it in 3:19:56. My friends did cheer me on amlost every corner (I think I saw them 10 times during the race), so I attribute my great result to their support (and of course, Where M I).
