Smart Phone/Device Survey

Post by CraigRat » 13 August 09 8:19 pm

Hello,
I am about to embark on a project that will have a version of GCA optimised for Smart Phones/Mobile Devices

This will be a feature rich interface, unlike the mobile.geocaching.com.au, and I'm after a few demographics of who has what out there. (this is to determine some of the underlying technologies and methods I will use).

This will not be an Application (thats another project), just an optimisation of the site to suit smaller touchscreen based objects.
Will also be useful for those of us with our tiny eee701's :lol:

You can select more than one device in the list.

A Nokia Symbian - but I wish I could understand how to use it for paperless caching though :oops:

Nokia Symbian but I plan to move to Window Mobile or Android this year.

Maybe even getting one of Garmin's phone if they ever finish them.

running two devices;
I run TomTom on one which stays in the car for driving directions, and geoscout on the other for close-in work and logging caches etc.
