This app was programmed in Google App Inventor by Ralph Roberts, author of the forthcoming book Google App Inventor by Example and a lot of other computer-related books over the years.
What it does: This app is deceptively powerful, thanks to accessing both GPS (all those wonderful navigation-aiding satellites up there above all our heads) and Google Map.
The first screen connects to the available satellites and guesses at the current street address. The result is not perfect, but close.
The latitude, longitude, and altitude are reported from the satellites close but varying accuracy.
The Map button gives real power! It gives puts you in Google Maps. For example, follow your location while moving in the Satellite view in real time!
Enjoy! It’s free. See ralphroberts.net for more about Ralph.
