Location Helper brings the power of Core Location to AppleScript. Location Helper has no interface, and runs in the background waiting for AppleScripts to ask it to do something.

You can use it to find your current location, altitude, geocode addresses, even reverse geocode your current location from your AppleScript scripts and applications.

Location Helper also contains all the functionality of our popular app JSON Helper, which allows you to parse JSON into AppleScript records, and convert AppleScript lists, records and strings into JSON.

No Longer Works

Recently, Location Helper is throwing an error message when you try to access it through an AppleScript. In a review I posted several days ago I pasted in that message, but the review was rejected.

Too bad. This was a useful tool.

So versatile and easy

AppleScript should've offered this natively, but this service provides a really complete and versatile dictionary. It could use a little more documentation in each verb, parameters, etc, but it didn't take long to try a few things to see what form you need to provide for direct objects and such.

Works awesome!

Love using this with the TextExpandor script!
