This application will calculate daily Geohash coordinates on your iPhone. Geohashing is a Spontaneous Adventure Generator, brought to you by the xkcd webcomic, at xkcd.com. For more information, visit www.xkcd.com, or check out this application's website.
Geohash now has the capability of mapping the location for your current graticule as well as the graticules immediately to the north, south, east, and west of your current location!
Thanks to Scott Pettigrew for help with the hash algorithm, and, of course, thanks to xkcd.com for a great comic (and...err...the icons too!).
What's New in Version 1.51
Fix serious bug revealed by the Dow's precipitous drop.
1.51 update got things rolling again
Now app is able to pick up the market data and calculate coordinates again!
To reviewer who mentioned the 'scuba trips', that's par for course in geohashing; not every grid will have accessible coordinates every day. Hit the 'East' button on those days if you're on the Left Coast ;)
I love the idea, but
I seem to be having a problem getting the app to give the coordinates. It will give me the correct coordinates, but only for dates starting three days ago. I think the idea is awesome, but not if I get data several days old.
Good app & suggestion
Great, useful application. However, I would suggest adding the ability to plot in the ordinal directions. Denver sits at the intersection of four graticules, and I live in the southwest one. It would be helpful to be able to "Map Northeast." Thanks!
