    IPK is out!!!

    Known issues:
    only works in KM, the selector list on the first scene does nothing
    heading only works at a brisk pace, need a way to make it more sensitive
    heading is displayed, unless people like it, I plan on removing it in the future, kind of a debug, for now
    heading defaults to 0 which is valid instead of -1 which is invalid and can be used as a work around until heading info comes back
    button does not show text in 1.0.x, I'm not worrying about this, upgrade to 1.1 and you'll be fine

    This is my path I plan to follow...

    0.1.0--first scene is complete
    0.2.0--second scene is complete
    0.3.0--all interface objects are present
    0.4.0--debug only text input for GPS info and reacts to inputs
    0.5.0--create bug handling
    0.6.0--GPS starts handling debug's variables--Public beta

    0.7.0--Notification shows that Handheld GPS is running, notification will only display when tracking scene is backgrounded
    0.8.0--when app is backgrounded, GPS pauses, when un-backgrounded loading screen pops up to let users know that it is re-grabbing GPS
    0.9.0--Bugs are handled with all aspects, time for new features that everyone will want...
    1.0.0--Saving points to cookie or db, Listing points with distance based on the position on loading scene 1, according to distance, and Importing points from sites(this may or may not be important to call it 1.0)

    Beyond...

    Current satellite info scene--depends on palm updating our abilities
    Google Maps integrated in some way, but not in a way to make things too easy
    Add landscape mode
    3d arrow

    Thank you for working on this, but I think you started this thread too early.

    According to your development path, 0.3.0 doesn't even "work" yet.

    Moved until release of an .ipk

    We are keeping ipk releases only in the HB forums.

    Thanks.

    Since the title says geocaching app, are you planning on letting users import waypoints and/or GPX or direct download from the Groundspeak site? Just curious...looks lke a great app in progress!

    I definitely plan on doing that. I'm not personally a geocacher, yet. I understand the concept, but I haven't begun to look at the sites for it.

    I have found those already, Calculate distance and bearing between two Latitude/Longitude points using Haversine formula in JavaScript. There is a link to a more accurate one for distance on that page, but it is more complex, and would use more battery, that may be a preference option in the future.

    Already in the works, it is actually the last bit holding up progress, before I can start invalid input handling.

    Glad you asked...Webkit transform - WebOS Internals. If you find more webkit transformations and use them in your app, please add it to the page. The arrow itself is kind of surprise I'm saving for release of the ipk, but I will tell you that the rotate script can rotate anything from tables to images to divs.

    I like the app. I was working on a really basic geocaching app for my own use and I may have some features that you may want to add. I had a button that allowed you to search geocaching.com for all of the nearest caches and displayed that in the web browser. I also had one that gave driving directions using google maps. If you want the code for those or want some help or something just send me an email: admin @ treyx.net

    Sweet!

    Suggestions...

    Dont even know if this is possible BUT how about search for nearby geocaches without going to the website to search?

    Be able to use your current location as a bookmark, IE go camping, @ camp make a bookmark of the coordinates, then go hiking. While gone you can find direction of camp. Basically making the phone use your current coordinates for a bookmark

    GREAT APP! Thanks!

    Devs, please move this to it's own app thread, this has nothing to do with mine.
