Pin Me

COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Locator, Native, Utilities, Travel
..RELEASED: 7/16/09, VERSION: 1.0.1 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..

I think Pin Me is a really helpful tool to have when traveling, or when you are having friends over. If you are traveling and get lost, simply send a Pin Me e-mail to your host and then they can help you with directions from there. Conversely, if someone is coming over or meeting you out somewhere, you can send them your location so they can easily find you. If you are stuck in traffic somewhere and late for a date or appointment, go ahead and send a Pin Me e-mail so that your date knows you are where you really say you are, and knows to expect you later! When you send out an e-mail with Pin Me, it is a plain text mail that carries the URL of the Google map location. The link should be clickable on most phones and e-mail software. You can also use Pin Me to send a text message by using the recipient's e-mail address carrier domain. There is no end to the host of useful scenarios whereby you can use this locator map. I would definitely keep it handy to avoid frustration in getting to a location, and meeting up with friends.

"Pin Me sends out an e-mail or an SMS with a Google Map map link to show your current location. It works on all generations of iPhone and iPod Touch though OS 3.0 is required. Everything is done within the app. When Pin Me is launched it shows a map with your current location. Compose and send the e-mail within the app. The e-mail address are obtained from within your iPhone Contacts settings.

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Let your friends know your exact location when you're on your way over.

--Tech Jargon: semantic search - In the study of language, semantics refers to the meaning of words. Therefore, a "semantic search" will search and discover the meaning of words, unlike the typical search engine method of searching only for the occurrence of keyword(s) on a Web page. A semantic search makes it easier to locate relevant information to the user's subject of interest, saving the user a lot of time reading through unrelated Web pages.
