    Lightbulb Free GPS Support in Beyond411

    Advertisement



    I am pleased to announce a new beta release of Beyond411 that supports location based search using GPS. For example, you can do yellow page searches and get driving directions from your current location, wherever you are.

    This release retains the customary Beyond411 focus on performance. I use background GPS lookups and location updates while the app is running to minimize the time that users spend waiting for results.

    You can install the 4.20 beta release over-the-air from http://thebogles.com/beta/b411.jad. Please note this is a beta release and you may encounter bumps in the road; let me know of any issues.

    Of course GPS functionality is only enabled on Blackberries that support GPS, e.g. the 8800 series. To turn on GPS search mode, select GPS from the location drop down at the top right of the search screen.

    sickened mentioned that he went to a slightly older OS version and this error went away. There is also an updated 4.20 release that has some improvements.

    honestly... this app couldn't get much better...

    hey philbo, can you add a menu option in the telephone section of the blackberry to do reverse phone lookup, like you have in the address book?
