[New] Psiloc releases Where I Am for P800

Psiloc Where I am is a powerful tool to perform various actions on the P800, based on its geographical location.





Locating of the device is based on the GSM network cells, but it is not visible. You only have to “teach” your phone the important locations like home, school, work, best friend, train station, church etc. This is very easy and doesn’t require any technical knowledge and understanding. It can be done from the Location menu.


However, the best of all is that you can create EVENTS!

Once there is at least one location saved you can create events for this location. Currently Where I am offers three event types: Alarm, SMS and Start application. That means, you can create an event to have an alarm at the moment when the phone approaches (or exits) selected location (geographical area). So you will be able to sleep in the train to work – your P800 phone will wake you up precisely at the desired station, even if the train is late. It can also be set up to remain of the speed controls!
The automatic SMS sending event can be used to inform your wife of coming back from work or to notify the coworker that the truck is coming to plan the work more effectively etc.
The automatic start of the application can be very handy if you use a concrete application always in some location, for example Calculator at work.
For the future we are planning to develop also other types of events. It will be probably possible to choose a different picture for every location.
Where I am is very user friendly application and understandable for everybody even though it implements a highly sophisticated technology.
More advanced user can consider using miniGPS instead of Where I am. MiniGPS is gives the user more technical information but is far more complicated to use. Use of both of them on the same phone is not possible.
