Cool new apps from Where 2.0Posted: 07/06/2011
For the second consecutive year, GeoRabble crew member Maurits van der Vlugt attended O’ Reilly’s 7th Where 2.0 Conference in California. As he mentioned last year, this conference is a Geo-Geek Walhalla. This is where you meet all the big mobile and neo-geography players, and learn about the ‘next big thing’.
Every year, this event is where geo-innovators, big and small, launch there latest “cool stuff”. Highlights this year included:
- http://geoloqi.com/ If you’re now (rightly) more worried about privacy, Geoloci enables private & secure location sharing within your network, and more.
- http://www.localmind.com/ – A service that lets you find out what’s happening at a certain place, by asking people who are checked-in at that specific location.
- One that stood out was http://uscapeit.com/. Believe it or not: this app allows you to generate immersive, 3D panoramas, straight from your iPhone. In minutes. For free. For real. Try it!
