[APP] Sorry I'M Late 1.0


People are always in a hurry to get somewhere. A common issue is to inform someone waiting for us that we are, let’s say, a bit late and maybe reassure him that we will be there in some time. It would be great if we could send a message to that someone telling him our approximate location and an estimate time to reach the destination ( maybe along with some excuses )

Sorry I'M Late was developed to achieve this task. This application allows a user to get his aproximate location and then send it to someone else though an SMS. While the idea itself is not new, my objective was in the first instance to create a User Interface as easy and friendly i could, secondly I wanted to exploit CellID localization instead of GPS. The last thing i wanted to do was to provide a more human readable message to be sent: most of the application i've tested, use GPS positioning to get a precise localization but then they send Latitude and Longitude coordinates or Google Maps links and usually when i want to tell someone where i am, i use street names instead of coordinates

Some features:
* Doesn't require GPS antenna
* Finger friendly UI thanks to SenseSDK from Steady Software
* Call history access to guess the most probable recipients
* Native SMS application used to send message to allow last minute changes
* Currently localized in English and Italian

This is an early stage application and I'm perfectly aware of some issues but if you can provide me with some feedback, i would appreciate it.
Thanks
Stefano


Technical stuff:

* .NET Compact Framework 3.5 required
* data connection is used to retrieve street names so be aware of this before you start the application

No problem man, I tested it on Mighty's latest 6.5 and it works fine (as far as I can tell) lol.. It's still a Beta but seems to do the job alright =)

Re: [APP] Sorry I'M Late 1.0

Why don't you at least link to the author's thread? You cut and pasted his entire post, so I bet you could cut and paste the address bar. It's better to have the thread and forum/website where the program is actually being developed so people can get help and/or report problems....
