How I Use It
I tried to use this product in my neighborhood and when I set it up, I chose no notifications. The app wouldn't register anything in my area. I tried to find assistance thinking I set it up incorrectly. After I reset it, the app had no items near me. I live half a mile from 2 historic buildings. I'm not sure if they aren't listed in Google. Since my school iPod is wireless only, this wouldn't work if we were out in the community.
My Take
I think it would be a great app if the student could put in a location, then see the nearby locations and events that happened there. I can see potential, but it needs work. It needs a database and the ability to find things by coordinates.
