Re: Location aware apps you love

Those are all great GPS apps, but not really location-aware as discussed in the Wired article.

Unfortunately, the only one I'm aware of is Palringo. Kinda a mash-up IM/Social app. I was hoping for a few more as well...

I haven't gotten the built in gps photo option to work but you can get a 3rd party program to tag your photos. I use gps today then when you upload the tagged photo to flickr or some other service that supports goetagging photos you can see on a map where that photo was taken

I got palringo working and it is pretty nice it's cool that you can send your location to others one prob though it didn't load my contact list from gtalk. Is that your experince as well?

Re: Location aware apps you love

I use PockeTwit regularly, although I don't use the Search/Local feature, it is a nice touch for when I remember to mess around with it. Cool to see what locals are yapping about.
