[prMac.com] Milton Keynes, United Kingdom - Clamp Horn Island has released Beam Me Up 1.0, their new utility app for iPhone 3G, 3GS, and iPhone 4 devices. Beam Me Up allows you to quickly inform somebody of your current location. Just like the standard Maps application, Beam Me Up will find your position as accurately as it can from the GPS satellites or telephone signals - but then with Beam Me Up you can manually move the location pin for increased accuracy.
Then, unlike the Maps application, you can send your location via SMS to a friend's phone so that he knows exactly where you are - without any need for cutting and pasting location details. Alternatively, if you have emails set up on your iPhone, you can send an email to his PC. Once your location details have been received, your friend simply clicks on the message content to open up his Maps application and know exactly where you are - he doesn't even need to have an iPhone, just a phone with a Maps app.
Think how useful this app will be when you want to meet your friends in town or get your parents to pick you up after a day out. There's also the facility to bookmark places so that you can return to them later. For example, save the location that you parked your car so that you can find it again after the shopping trip.
* iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 0.5 MB
