Palringo gets signed, adds location, gets overhaul

Popular IM client deluxe Palringo has had an S60 client for a while, but as of now (v0.97) it's properly Symbian Signed, it's got cell tower location, GPS support and Wi-fi beacon detection built-in, plus a mountain of bugs have been fixed, settings added and the interface has been massively overhauled. Screenshots and download link below the break.

Read on in the full article.

Location service

Just a couple of points about the location service:

1. If you explicitly disable and then re-enable the service with GPS when you're outside, then it should get a GPS lock. The GPS does enter sleep mode if it's been inside for a few minutes or you're not moving particularly quickly in order to preserve the battery.

2. The service has a few minutes of lag on it when you're in an area that has not yet been surveyed by Palringo. However, it should be almost instant once we've seen the area that you are in before. Also, there are some areas of the world that we are currently unable to provide a location for - but we're working on it!

3. We try and test on as many devices as possible, but with the myriad of different combinations of firmware/device-type/network operator, there may be some combinations where the location service cannot work at all yet. If you continue to have a problem that is not answered on the Palringo forums, then please e-mail support(AT) with the details and we'll endeavour to investigate.

Best regards,

Palringo Location Service Developer
