integrating geochat & mobile phone gps
when posting new coordinates by sms it is not always possible to have the right address. e.g. in case of floodings the name of the street maybe it is not available. As in the new phones - android or iphone - it is possible to have the exact location through gps it could be possible to develop a very simple application that "copies" the lat and long into a new sms.
We are very aware of this, obviously. The first step – in the ongoing release in september- is to finalize the APIs (http and SMS) that will simplify developing these sort of apps.
There is now an open source app for android at smslocation.googlecode.com and one for iPhone at iengage.googlephone.com
http://iengage.googlephone.com/ doesn't seem to be a live link anymore. Does this mean the app is done or has it moved?
