GPS Me for iPod Touch

GPS Me for iPod Touch

 

Description

“GPS Me for iPod Touch” introduces the ultimate experience in location-aware communication: the ability to share your exact geographic location with others over email, Facebook™, and Twitter™! Using “GPS Me”, a few simple taps prepares a location-aware set of information suitable for sending over email, your Facebook™ Wall, or your Twitter™ timeline. Your friends, family, or followers can then immediately locate and/or navigate to your exact location via Google Maps in a computer web browser or the iPhone’s/iPod Touch’s built-in Maps application.

* HOW WOULD YOU USE “GPS Me for iPod Touch”? *

* You are on vacation in an exotic place, and want to let everyone know exactly where you are having a great time, and perhaps where those pictures you just sent or posted were taken. Forget the typical “hey where were these taken? where on the Island are you staying?” stream of posts that inevitably result. “GPS Me” answers those questions, and allows everyone to view your current location on a map.

* You’ve found a great fishing hole, and need to summon the gang or tell them where this magical spot is at. Using “GPS Me”, you can let them know the catch is on, and they’ll know exactly where on the river or lake you are.

* You’ve found a fabulous restaurant, a new specialty store, or a great new park for the kids to play at. This is information you want everyone to know about. “GPS Me” will give your friends and followers a map they can use to locate and navigate to your new discoveries!

* Forbid if you have an emergency, but at some point, they will happen. Never before have you been able in a single app to leverage your address book, and multiple social networks as far-reaching as Facebook™ and Twitter™ for help, but now you can! If you run out of gas, get a flat tire, wreck your bike, or are being followed by a stranger, immediately send your exact location, which will open up a whole new source of possible help! It will also document your whereabouts, should others be trying to find you and/or you go missing. Your possible number of helping hands has now significantly expanded to the social networks of Facebook™ and Twitter™!

* FEATURES *

* One tap location determination.

* Location determination shows current and desired levels of accuracy and countdown timer while calculating.

* Email, Facebook™ Wall, and Twitter™ timeline location information is automatically generated by the app.

* URL shortening to minimize characters for Twitter™ statuses.

* Configurable unit of measure, imperial and metric systems both supported.

* Configurable maximum calculation time.

* Configurable desired GPS accuracy.

* Ability to name your location.

* Ability to save, manage, and resend favorite locations.

* Ability to view favorite locations on a map with the application.

* Ability to send feedback directly to Big Hill Software via email.

Forget the complexity of navigation applications which bury you in controls and statistics. Sometimes more is just “more”. You don’t want a confusing app that looks like the inside of the cockpit of the space shuttle, which requires a P.H.D. to figure out how to use. You want an app which is clean, simple, and a pleasure to use: “GPS Me” is the definition of a “cool” app.

The only question left is, why isn’t “GPS Me for iPod Touch” on your iPod Touch?

NOTE: “GPS Me for iPod Touch” is targeted for iPod Touch devices running iPhone OS 3.0 and newer only.

App works perfectly, and Daveh is not a legitimate reviewer

:
In the interest of full disclosure, this is the developer of the app, and this review is being entered for the sole purpose of countering a false and misleading review by Daveh (medic183). Daveh contacted BHS through the feedback link in our app, delivering basically incoherent complaints about the app not working. Specifically, Daveh complained that he couldn't "enter [his] location", presumably in favorites. Given that YOU CAN'T ENTER A LOCATION, IT IS AUTOMATICALLY CALCULATED BY THE GPS LOCATION SERVICES IN THE APP (hence the entire purpose of the app), and it says so in highlighted text on the top of the favorites screen, and it is inherent in the app desription, and it is described in detail in the help documentation with images in the app, this is clearly user error. Regardless, we contacted him twice, communicating our desire to help him and deliver excellent support. We requested he answer a couple of simple questions about his environment, and let us know exactly what he was doing to reproduce the problem. He neglected to respond to both of our attempts to contact him, and instead posted a false review. This app has been tested, reviewed, and we have received zero complaints about the app other than from Daveh, who had no interest in solving his problem, but instead apparently wants to mislead the public about a great app, and a lot of hard work that has been spent to produce it. I would discount this person's reviews, not only here, but on any other app, as apps deserve to get fair reviews.

4/5 stars

Works as advertised

:
My problem is that I use an IPod touch, not an Iphone 3G as reccommended. The IPod touch uses my rural home WIFI network to determine my location. It is off by about 10 miles, but that is due to my ISP, not the software. I am anxious to try this in a more urban area where there are more WIFI signals that could better pin my location.

2/5 stars

Not for non-urban areas

:
This app appears to work using the same information that the regular "maps" app uses. If you don't normally get position information then this app is not for you. In large urban centers I'm sure it works very well. This app does not allow you to get position information on an iPod touch if there is no wifi or if the wifi you use is not registered with Skyhook. Buyer beware, this is only for allowing you to post a position to a social network site.
