SignalFlare is all about telling someone "Hey, I'm over here!" *without* broadcasting it to the Internet.
SignalFlare lets you tell your spouse, "I had to move the car, I'm parked over here." It lets you tell your friends, "We're sitting over here" at a concert. It's a really simple application that requires two things: a phone with a GPS & compass and text messaging.
• How it works •
When you fire up SignalFlare and tell it to send your location, it uses your phone's GPS and locks onto your position. Then, it takes your location and creates a text message for you with a special link. Right from the app, you can customize and send that message to any contact in your addressbook. When they receive your text message, they can tap on the link and SignalFlare will present them with an arrow pointing the way to your location.
If your friends don't have the application, the text message will include a link to the Map application. Share with anyone, whether they have SignalFlare or not!
• Please note •
SignalFlare simply points the straight line route to a location. It doesn't know about obstructions or other hazards that might be in the way. In other words, use your common sense when using the app and be safe. Also, be aware that the application uses your phone's text messaging service, so normal messaging rates will apply.
What's New in Version 1.1
Recipients no longer must have SignalFlare installed in order to see your location!
The text message you send will now contain two different links - the second one now points to Google Maps and will launch the Map application.
Thanks for the feedback!
