What's new in this version (1.4):
Improved location link accuracy when opened in Google Maps on mobile devices.
Have you ever wondered how to explain to someone where you are right now in the city? With the 'Send my location' app you can easily send a link to a map of your current location to a friend via SMS or email. Anyone with an interned-enabled phone can receive the map. A feature-phone with a mobile browser will also work besides of course any type of smartphone. You can also just email the link with your position to anyone with Internet access.
Imagine the following situation:
I am dining with friends in a new restaurant. Another friend calls and asks me to explain where I am, so he can join us. Instead of trying to explain the location of the restaurant I just take my phone, start the app and wait for it to find my position on the map. I tap on the map to put a flag on the exact location of the restaurant and send the link containing its GPS coordinates to my friend's mobile as SMS. My friend receives the message and clicks on the link inside. A map of my location opens inside Google Maps (if he has a smartphone) or inside his mobile browser (if he has a feature-phone). I can also send my GPS position to any email address.
