iOS 4.0 compatibility and background support added.
Twitdar is a powerful and flexible location-integrated Twitter client for the iPhone that allows you to share your precise GPS location as well as your status with all of your Twitter followers all without having to sign-up for any additional services.
*** Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. ***
Additionally, Twitdar will only transmit your location when you want it to and not continuously so you can always maintain your privacy. You have many customizable options to choose from including:
* Ability to customize preset messages for quick status updates.
* Choose from either time or distance intervals between automatic updates.
* Option of sending latitude/longitude coordinates or a Google map link to your location.
The potential uses for Twitdar are limited only by your imagination, but here are just a few of what we could think of:
* For parents: kids can let you know they've truly arrived safely at their destination (or secretly track them by hiding the iPhone in their car).
* In an emergency: let your friends know where you are immediately so they can send help.
* For vacation: ensure jealousy by sharing beautiful locales with your friends.
* During a disaster: share real-time eyewitness reports, evacuation, shelter, or other disaster information along with your own location.
* If you get arrested: instead of just one phone call, quickly let all your followers know what happened and where you are (and how to get you out).
* For your favorite places: share the location of your favorite places and activities.
** This app is designed only for the GPS-enabled iPhones 3G/3GS **
