FindMeHere BlackBerry Application Updated to v0.69

Posted on 14. Apr, 2010 by in BlackBerry

BerryCodes has released an update to the application FindMeHere today.  FindMeHere is a straight forward and simple app that allows you to use your GPS enabled BlackBerry to find your current location, and gives you a link to Google Maps that will show the recipient exactly where you are.  For example, http://bit.ly/b4mgfN is a link I sent to a family member while shopping at a local store.  FindMeHere gives the user the option to automatically copy the link or send it via Twitter, Email, or SMS.

  • Simple Interface
  • Click the copy button to have the Google Maps link copied for you
  • Paste your location into any text field; Email, MMS, SMS, BlackBerry Messenger, Twitter apps.. anywhere you want!

**New in version 0.69**

  • New send button allows for Email, SMS, and Twitter integration
  • Twitter option takes user to mobile Twitter site with location information auto populated
  • Email option autofills email with location information
  • SMS option will create an sms, but not autofill location information (issue with 5.0 API’s)
  • Bit.ly now shortens your location link automatically
  • IMPORTANT: Do not copy the link before Bit.ly has shortened the link and you are presented with it. The full Google Maps link will not work properly.

FindMeHere works on any 4.5+ devices that are GPS capable.  It is currently on sale via MobiHand for $0.99 through the end of the month, after that you can pick it up for $1.99.  Check out FindMeHere.

Full disclosure: FindMeHere is a team effort of myself and John Bergoon.  I own BerryCodes and have partnered with John on FindMeHere.  Are we afraid of a shameless plug? Not at all. We hope you don’t mind either.
