Psychogeography for phones

Psiloc is a futurephone app that activates events and actions on your phone based on your location relative to GSM cells:

“…you can create an event to have an alarm at the moment your phone logs in (or out) a selected cell. So you will be able to sleep calmly in your train to work or school – it will wake you up precisely at your station, even if your train is late?

For places like church, theater, hospital etc. you can set a flight mode event which will just switch the phone part of your P800 off as soon as you come there! No more embarrassing rings during performance!”

    Be careful with the events – I managed to send a few hundred SMSes in the space of a few minutes to a friend. It took 4 or 5 hours to deliver them all.

    It’s cool – what netwrok are you on? I’m trying to find people on different networks to see if MiniGPS cell ids tally with those on Sitefinder.

    fwiw, they don’t on Orange.
