Location Notes is not the most revolutionary app out there but I am really intrigued by the concept. Essentially the app stores you location alongside the notes you write on your BlackBerry. This could be a really cool way to keep a trip log or journal. The app only works off GPS which is not as ideal as cell tower triangulation but is more reliable. I have been constantly hearing how Location Based Services (LBS) are going to change our mobile experience and I think this is an interesting trek in that direction. Especially if RIM releases a global app that would provide your cell tower location to any application you wish. Still if you have a use for such an app you can pick it up in the store for $3.99.
Location Notes allows to keep notes and additional information associated with GPS coordinates from your GPS enabled BlackBerry Smartphone. Notes that have been saved can be sent as e-mail, or exported to a BlackBerry memo. Coordinate based notes can also be viewed via BlackBerry Maps, or Google Maps. Useful for keeping travel notes, or field research. Intended for anyone who would like to document coordinate location and/or landmarks. The BlackBerry 9630/Tour works with either the "BlackBerry" or "Storm" version.
