Maufait Instafind Adds GPS To Search App

Maufait let me know that they have added location aware features to their Instafind application. Not sure how many of you are using the app so I thought it was worth mentioning.

Details about the upgrade below:

We have made the Instafind app even better by adding GPS. The Instafind app is location aware now. No keying in any location information, Instafind automatically detects location.

Instafind GPS also works on BlackBerrys that don’t support GPS. The location is retrieved in 3 secs as opposed to the native GPS that takes close to 3 minutes and drains the battery.

download: (please delete the current version on your phone before downloading the new version)

  1. Okay, I guess I’m not getting what is “application” about this? It’s pages in the web browser.

    • Its part of RIM’s broader definition of a web based application since it has access to functions like GPS

      • Okay, but aren’t applications suppose to ASK for access to your location? I mean, that’s the whole reasoning Verizon has been using to lock out access to GPS is apps getting location and potentially disclosing it without the user knowing. This app when I ran it didn’t ask (like some others I have run), so either it’s smart enough to know I’m on Verizon and it won’t get GPS access (so it used the location of the nearest cell tower automagically) OR it’s exactly the sort of application Verizon tells us it is “protecting” us from!

  2. I remember a message popped up on mine asking me if it was okay to get my location. I said yes.
