    As long as you have GPS signal. The app will always use the exact location shown by the blue dot in the map, so you'll have to send each message as a separate text, but it will work while moving.

    2G is phased out by Apple. It is sad but true. Next year will be 3G.

    Downloaded it, fun stuff. For free you can't complain. Good job. I just sent out a text to everyone telling them to download it with my location.

    wow. why does everyone need to know where everyone is all the time? I thought the point of having a cell phone was so you avoid people and lie about where you are at.
    It's a cool app but I will not be using it.

    btw, I'm at the Starbucks by the mall if anyone wants to meet up. lol

    Doesnt work for me, but works for a friend. we are both using iphone 4's on 4.0.1 but mine is jailbroken and his is not. Every time I try to send location, url shortened or not, it either sends coordinates 0,0 or a long list of coordinates that google maps then says "No Results Found"
    I do have location spoofer installed, but have it set to never spoof this app.

    Hey good app. No idea why this sort of thing isn't integrated into the Map app.

    Just some potential improvements you could make...

    -ability to move the pin in case you're inside and can not get a good gps lock.
    -different reply templates
    -make the map screen bigger- there is a lot of wasted screen real estate.

    I'll stick to Foursquare and/or Brightkite. Nice app though, I like that it uses google maps.
